Re: Easy casserole recipes
We make casseroles all the time.
The easiest I make is probably Poppy Seed Chicken. I usually cook the chicken by boiling - it's easy to do the night before.
3-4 chicken breasts, chopped and cooked
8 oz. sour cream
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 tube Ritz crackers, crushed
melted butter (about 2-3 Tbsp.)
Mix chicken, sour cream, poppy seeds and soup. Combine butter and Ritz and sprinkle on top. Cook at 350 for 20-30 minutes until warm.
Another one that my kids love and that always gets good reviews is Cottage Pie. It's a little more time consuming, but it's really, really good. I usually make it with peas and carrots, but any vegetables will do - my mom makes it a lot with corn and green beans.
1 lb. ground beef
about 2 cups brown gravy (I make it myself, but you can also buy it in a can)
garlic (I use garlic powder)
1 small can tomato paste
instant mashed potatoes
2 cans of vegetables (any two will do)
Brown beef, drain and add gravy, garlic, and tomato paste. Layer in bottom of casserole dish. Drain cans of vegetables and layer on top of beef. Top with prepared mashed potatoes. Heat at 350 for 20-30 minutes until warm.
