We’ve been having the dreariest, dark, cold, wet weather all week. How about you? I know it’s good for the plants but I get feeling a little blue. I want to get outside and DO things! Instead, we’ve tucked in and made something warm and comforting and creamy and cheesy! Three Cheese Chicken Casserole!
I know I’ve said I don’t really “get” casseroles! Cook a bunch of good food, mix it together and recook it! But even I get how nice it is to pull a pan of hot, bubbly, and cheesy deliciousness out of the oven, plop it on the table and call “Dinner!” And this Sloppy Joe Casserole qualifies!
Can a person have too many pasta recipes? Possibly, especially if you’re on a budget. It’s almost too easy to turn to pasta dishes, so when I do make one, I try to make it the best! You’ll love this warm and comforting dish loaded with fresh mozzarella, Italian sausage and for a healthier twist, ground chicken or turkey. Use ground beef if you’d rather, though.
Here’s an old American classic standby pantry dish, one according to Wikipedia just celebrated its 100th birthday last year, being published in cookbooks as early as 1914. Simple, tasty, cheap and filling, Goulash (sometimes called Macaroni Beef or Chili Mac) is familiar to generations of Americans, especially throughout the Midwest where I grew up. Talk about comfort food!
I originally posted this Chicken Pot Pie in November of 2011, one of my very first posts! Today, as I made it again, I updated with new photos. That night, I had been looking at Time’s Money Issue and became sidetracked. Pretty soon, I was clicking on one link after another; you know how that goes, right?
Years ago I came across this recipe, so long ago, I’m not sure where it came from. This makes enough to cover a 13 x 9 inch casserole or to make a topping for 6 individual Pot Pies, like my “Chicken Pot Pie you WISH your Grandma Made!” They also make some of the best drop or rolled or patted out biscuits you’ll ever taste! Can I say superb? Yep, I just did!
These biscuits are formulated to be a fantastic topping, but sometimes I cheat when I want a biscuit – they’re that good. With any biscuit, the ingredients are important, but the technique will make it or break it. Handle gently and minimally and you’ll be rewarded.
For years, my daughter’s been describing this casserole to me, a family favorite of her in-laws. For years, in my head, I’ve been thinking: Do we NEED another Tuna Casserole? The “We” being not just our family, but the world as a whole! One taste of this casserole was all it took to change my mind.
