Time to slip into something more comfortable…



…like this delicious casserole I fixed for supper last night.  We’re in a rut food-wise, so I decided to try a little something different.  Seymour sometimes gets a little nervous when I start experimenting in the kitchen (and after the lasagna casserole incident, I suppose I can’t blame him, but I still say my pepperoni, green onion, and parsley pizza rocks), but this recipe – which I made up as I went along – was a bona fide crowd-pleaser (Bubbles cheered when I told him I wrote down what I did so I could duplicate the results).

So, without further ado, my recipe for Comfort Casserole (so called because it just felt comfort foody):

8 oz. sour cream
1 can (10 ¾ oz.) cream of mushroom soup
½ can milk
2 lbs. hamburger
Onion flakes
1 can corn
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
3 tubes (7.5 oz.) buttermilk biscuits

In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, mushroom soup, and milk.  Mix well; set aside.  Brown hamburger together with onion flakes; drain.  Combine with corn.  Preheat oven to 350°F.  Coat a 9×13″ pan with nonstick spray.  Add hamburger mixture, then cheese, then sauce.  Spread sauce till evenly distributed.  Top with biscuits.  Bake 35-45 minutes or till biscuits are done.

Comfort Casserole.  Yum yummy!

Comfort Casserole. Yum yummy!

So, there you have it.  Not too shabby, if I do say so myself, though I did think about adding green beans or hash browns or something.  I think a few more veggies might make a tasty addition, but then the sauce might need to be, uh, more.  You know, maybe use a whole can of milk instead of just a half can.  If you try it, let me know what you think!

    Looks great. We don’t do much – make that any cooking in our house, but I’ve copied the recipe for when we do. It’s bound to be some time this year.

      We’ve done too little cooking lately ourselves, and it seems like we eat the same few dishes over and over again, so I had a lot of fun trying something new. I used to really enjoy cooking, but I think that was before I had to do it all the time. You know, before I had kids. 😉

      If you do get around to trying it, I hope you enjoy it and I hope you’ll let me know what you think! It really didn’t take too long to put together, except for deciding what to put in it. Maybe I should have called it Dump Casserole instead, since all I did was dump stuff into it? 😀

      Thank you! It tasted totally delicious, too. Sooo not good for my waistline, but I have yet to find comfort food that is. 😀

      Ooo! That reminds me that I still owe you that email. I’ll get on that. 🙂
