  • Here is a real easy one it's called "Turkey Day Everyday" heres how it's done:
    1 lbs of ground turkey
    1 box of stuffing
    1 jar of turkey gravy
    1 can of cranberry sauce
    1- 2 bag box of betty crocker potato
    Take a 9x13 pan pour the box of stuffing on the bottom of pan, brown ground turkey lay that on top of stuffing, squeeze the cranberry sauce a lay that on top of stuffing and turkey pur te jar of gravy over all of that then cook up the potatos and lay them on the top of all of that and bake for 40-45 minutes on 350
    It's kind of like a shepards pie but better my children love this and it has lways been a hit for any "bring a dish get together"
    If you have any questions please just e-mail me I hope you enjoy this.

  • I am not a huge casserole fan, but I do have a couple that I make on a regular basis. Kadee's Pot Pie, great for lazy cooks like me! You can sub whatever and I'm sure it'll still be good.
    Crust (double this if you also want crust on the bottom, I like it better that way):
    1 c. flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
    1 tsp. salt
    4 tbsp. butter
    1/4 c. shortening (I use earth balance sticks)
    3 tbsp. ice water
    Mix all but the water with a fork until shortening is the size of small peas. Add ice water and mix to pastry consistency. Refrigerate while you mix the filling.
    Filling:
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1 can vegetable broth
    1 small potato, cut into 1/2" cubes
    1 carrot, sliced
    1 large mushroom, sliced
    1 small can corn (I use frozen)
    1 small can peas (I use frozen)
    about 1/4 tsp. each: sage, thyme, & oregano

  • Mix all these things together (you can use more or less broth to make the sauce the consistency you want). Cover the bottom of two loaf pans with crust (if you doubled the crust). Pour in the filling, and top with the rest of the crust. Bake at 400 degrees for about an hour

    BEANS AND PASTA BAKE
    1 med. onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, chopped
    2" segment hot chili pepper, minced or 1/4 tsp. cayenne
    1 tbsp. chili powder
    1 qt. undrained canned diced tomatoes
    1 tsp. oregano
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1 c. uncooked whole wheat elbow macaroni or other pasta broken into pieces
    3/4 c. frozen or canned corn
    3/4 c. diced zucchini
    3 c. cooked pink or black beans (or two cans)
    1/2 c. sliced black olives
    1 c. broken taco shells or tortilla chips
    1 c. shredded Jack cheese or cheese of your choice

  • In a skillet coated with non-stick cooking spray (I use olive oil) sauté onion, garlic and hot pepper for about 3 minutes to soften. Add chili powder and cook briefly. Add tomatoes, oregano and cumin and bring to a boil. Add pasta, corn and zucchini and simmer 15 minutes until pasta is just tender. Stir in beans and olives. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Transfer bean mixture to a shallow 2 quart casserole. Top with taco shells or tortilla chips and cheese. Bake for 10 minutes to melt cheese. If casserole is assembled in advance and chilled, increase baking time to 20 minutes or until heated through. Top with sour cream at the table.

  • Chicken & Rice Casserole

    * 8 pieces chicken drums or thighs or combination
    * 1 can cream of mushroom soup
    * 1 to 1 1/2 soup cans water
    * 1 Tbsp. dry onion flakes
    * 2 tsp. beef boullion
    * 1 cup long grain rice

    Wash chicken pieces (I prefer to remove the skin too). In 9 x 13 pan or baking dish, combine the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add chicken pieces. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
