Delightfully Easy Fall Casserole

Updated on August 11, 2015

A Casserole to Warm the Tummy and Soul

My grandmother originally made this casserole one night that my grandparents had our family over for dinner. It is one of those homey meals that brings the family together and creates memories. Well, later when I asked how she had made it she said she couldn't remember, so my mom and I tried to make it ourselves. I am unsure where she found the original recipe, but I am so glad we were able to recreate this dish, as it is the best comfort meal! An added bonus to this recipe is that with just a few adjustments you can use left over Thanksgiving dinner to make it as well. Although you can use leftovers to make this meal, it is unlikely you will have any after serving this dish. It is so easy to put together that you'll be wanting to make it again and again!

Mixing Bowls

I've found that you can never have enough mixing bowls and it important to find the ones you love and are the easiest for you to use.


Mix one can of water (a little at a time) with soup until smooth.

Bake

Bake casserole for 75 minutes.

If you like a crispier topping, like I do, then bake for 90 minutes. Still check the casserole after 75 to see if you want to add time, as the stuffing can burn.

3 slices or 1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese.

Slicer

If you don't have presliced/grated cheese or prefer to slice and grate your own, then these are the perfect tools!

After the casserole has finished baking cover with cheese. The amazing aromas will lure people to the table!

A Little Different Recipe

I found a similar recipe on the back of the Stove Top stuffing box, so I'm thinking that could be where the recipe originated from! There are a few changes to add a different flavor to the dish and the preperation is different at well.

Using Thanksgiving Leftovers

Changes: preheat oven to 350, use 4 cups chopped or pulled cooked turkey, thaw and drain frozen vegetables, use turkey Stove Top stuffing instead of chicken (prepared), do not cover with aluminum foil, bake 30 minutes.

Other suggestions: mix milk with soup instead of water, mix grated cheese in with the soup, or top with mashed potatoes then add stuffing.
