Yesterday we had the opportunity to have some missionaries from our church over for dinner. These young men usually leave home for two years to serve as missionaries. Can you imagine leaving your home for two years? I would have a tough time with that for sure!
Since these guys are away from home, I thought that maybe it would be nice for them to eat some nice, good comfort food. And what better comfort food is there than a home baked casserole? Casseroles are delicious, and there are so many options out there to make a casserole to your family’s liking.
I started out with this recipe from Six Sister’s Stuff for their Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole. The great thing about casseroles are that they are easy to adapt if there are certain ingredients that you would or wouldn’t like to include in your casserole.
For this recipe, instead of using butter, I used Country Crock. We are also cheese lovers at our house, so I added a layer of shredded cheese to the top of the casserole before adding the crackers on top. Cheese makes everything better, doesn’t it?
Doesn’t that look yummy? The cheese was a great addition, and the crunchy layer of crackers and Country Crock on top was just tasty; that might have been the best part!
We served the casserole with steamed veggies and rolls, and I think it’s safe to say that it was a hit! My kids even ate it, so that’s the mark of a winner in our house!
I’m thinking that next time, I might swap out the sour cream with cream cheese, and maybe use some corn flakes on top instead of the crackers. We didn’t add in the lemon juice this time, but I would like to try that as well.
Isn’t that the beauty of casseroles? Picking and choosing ways to make it yours. Easy even for those of us that maybe aren’t so cooking inclined.
