Pass me that casserole!

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”)
Cheese
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.
