The other day, I was looking through “the pile” for casserole recipes and I came across this little gem! I think it originally came a Southern Living magazine.
You know, I was born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania, but I’ve always thought that (deep down) that I was born on the wrong side of the Mason Dixon Line! I love all things southern — the food, the hospitality. I love it all. And, I live vicariously through my Southern Living magazines!
OK, back the casserole…I pulled this recipe out with a few others (like Chicken Cannelloni with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce — which, if you haven’t already tried it, you MUST!) to try on a brisk fall day.
6 Tbsp melted butter, divided
4 cups sourdough rolls, cubed
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
2 medium sweet onions, sliced
1 (8 oz) package sliced mushrooms
1 cup white wine
1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
2 1/2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
Toss 4 Tbs melted butter with the bread, parmesan cheese and parsley; set aside.
Saute onions in remaining butter in a large skilled over medium-high heat for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Add mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes.
Stir in wine, soup, roasted red peppers and chicken. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 9×9 baking dish; top evenly with bread mixture.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Is it a Keeper?
This casserole was soooo good! I loved how all of the flavors worked so well together — the roasted red peppers, the wine, the mushrooms. And the bread was a nice, crispy, golden brown. So buttery and good!
It made a wonderful sauce that’s a shame to waste so I would serve it over egg noodles or with roasted potatoes. Or something else? What do you think?
Also, be sure to check out some of the other great websites and blogs that I’ve found. Their links are to the right —>
