The most recent addition to my ever-expanding collection of cookbooks was given to me for Christmas from my sister. After owning it for just a few months, I have already made quite a few recipes from it and all have been delicious. So, I thought it was worth raving about a little bit.
Better Homes and Gardens "Biggest Book of Casseroles" is the name and the cover claims that it contains more than 380 "Delicious Comfort Food Favorites". Casseroles are a favorite because they are usually simple to make and extremely satisfying. I grew up eating them too, especially tuna noodle casserole, which was a staple at our house. In fact, I don't think I've made that dish once since moving out on my own (sorry, mom!)
I welcome variety, but never thought it was possible to come up with so many variations. Well, let me tell you, it is! The book features casseroles for breakfast, dessert, main dish and sides. There are ethnic dishes and the good old stand by's. Some with meat, and some without.
I recently made the "Asparagus-Ham Bake" on page 13 (see picture), and it was scrumptious down to the last bite. The ingredient list includes ham, swiss cheese, rice, asparagus (loooove it) and panko bread crumbs.
I won't give away the entire recipe here, but I urge you to go out and snag a copy for yourself. It is well worth the $20!
