Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Casserole

I made this earlier this week when my daughter and son-in-law came to visit before leaving… sniff, sniff... I miss them so much already! It was really delicious with some Quick & Easy Garlic Bread.He actually really loved it and requested the recipe so I thought I’d go ahead and share it with everyone!

This recipe is fairly simple to make and you can actually make it a couple of ways… you can use Easy Alfredo Sauce in the place of the ‘sauce’ for this recipe. You can also add in more or less chicken and/or throw some cooked bacon and/or sauteed mushrooms in there too! This meal works great as a freezer meal as well!

Favorite Sweet Potato Casserole

This is probably my most requested recipe at holiday meals. I don’t know where I got the recipe but it has been around our home for quite some time now. If you don’t care for the topping you can always leave it off or substitute some marshmallows in its place.

Momma’s Green Bean Casserole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before now. I wouldn’t have realized it if my oldest daughter hadn’t asked for the recipe. I figured I might as well share it with everyone because things are getting a little hectic around here as we have packed up a few things as we prepare for our new home and who knows where this recipe might end up?

One of my fondest memories from when I was little was sitting on the back porch with my Mom-mom helping her with the beans and other goodies she had harvested from her garden.

As I got older I did this with my kids as well. I can still remember when we had a Doberman, named Mac, who loved green beans. The little stinker would run right up to the washtub and steal the beans every chance he got! Continue reading “Momma’s Green Bean Casserole”

Chicken and Dumplin’ Casserole

I love a good bowl of chicken and dumplings every so often. When I can across an old recipe for a chicken dumpling casserole I knew I had to give it a try. However, I needed to tweak it a bit as some of the ingredients wouldn’t go over so well around here.

I took out a few things and added a few things that I normally add to my chicken and dumplings. I tried to snap a few pics and the photo above was before it went into the oven. However, I forgot to get a pic of the finished product and by the time I remembered it was all gone! Continue reading “Chicken and Dumplin’ Casserole”

Quick and Easy Burrito Casserole

This is a recipe that I’ve had for a while and I’ve tweaked it a bit here and there to get it to our liking. I’ve actually had it on the menu plan for the past couple of weeks but haven’t been able to make it as we’ve just had some hectic schedules here lately.

You can call the kids in to help with this one. My littles like to tear up the tortillas and sprinkle on the cheese while the girls like helping to stir the meat and bean mixture and spread the sour cream. You can also let them help make a salad to go along with this yummy dish! Continue reading “Quick and Easy Burrito Casserole”

Nanny J’s Carrot Souffle

This was one of the new recipes we had for Thanksgiving. It was really quite delicious and if you have picky eaters that don’t like carrots you may want to give this a try. Mr. Awesome doesn’t like carrots but he was the one who requested this.

Your family will be singing the ‘Carrots Are Divine’ song after eating this!

Nanny J’s Corn Pudding

What the heck is corn pudding? That’s what I thought when Mr. Awesome tried to tell me about it. I had never heard of such a thing until I met him. We had this on Thanksgiving and it was delicious.

Easy Pork Chops with Rice

Shepherd’s Pie in a Skillet

This recipe is fairly simple and easy to put together. You could leave off the French Fried Onions if you like. I might also try it with some shredded cheese the next time I make it.

If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet you could transfer the meat mixture to a 9×13 greased casserole dish and bake.

** I have been informed that it is technically a ‘Cottage Pie’ as it does not contain lamb… but you could make this with ground lamb if you like. Continue reading “Shepherd’s Pie in a Skillet”

Chicken Cordon Casserole

This is one of those recipes that takes me a little bit longer to put together so we don’t have it as often as some of the other recipes. It is also a bit more expensive to make so it is a treat when we do have it.

Chicken Cordon Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 10 – 12  slices of ham
  • 10 – 12 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1 t. black pepper
  • 1t. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter or margarine
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. chicken broth
  • 3 T. Dijon Mustard
  • 2 c. crackers, crushed
  • 1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 T. garlic powder
  • 1 T. onion powder
  • 1 T. parsley
  • 1/3 c. butter or margarine, melted

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350.

Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter or margarine and whisk in the flour until well combined.

Slowly add the chicken broth making sure to stir well.

When the sauce starts to thicken add the mustard, salt, and pepper.  Stir and remove from heat.

Mix the Parmesan cheese, crackers, garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley. Set to the side.

Pour a small amount of the sauce on the bottom of the pan.

Place the chicken in the bottom of the pan and season with salt and pepper, as desired.

Drizzle the chicken with the sauce.

Place the ham slices in a layer over the chicken.

Then layer the Swiss cheese.

Spread the sauce over the cheese.

Sprinkle on the cracker and cheese mixture.

Drizzle with melted butter.

Bake for 40 – 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the topping has browned.
