Casserole Cook Book
Better Homes and Gardens
You all know I can’t resist a good casserole cookbook. We have another nice cookbook with pictures that do nothing to entice the reader to eat said casseroles. If you are a casserole/hot dish fan then you know that certain ingredients appear all the time:
- A can of cream-of-something soup
- Some kind of meat or tuna fish
- Potato chips (for crunch!)
- A can of vegetables (maybe frozen if you want an “upgrade”)
- Noodles or rice
Actually, if you take the above and mix them together you probably have 90% of casserole recipes covered. This book doesn’t use the cream of something soup as often, but they have some wonderful substitutes such as mayonnaise, evaporated milk, and sour cream.
Extra credit to this book for including some creativity with fondue, curried lamb, and the manicotti. However this is almost cancelled with the inclusion of Jumbo Cornburger and Jazzy Hash.
Now that fall has arrived, time to break out some delicious casseroles. You’re welcome.
