Baked Mushroom Casserole

I got this recipe from a cookbook that I gave to my mother in 1965. It is called "Casserole Cookery". I never actually looked at the cookbook until she passed it on to me 3 years ago. I started making this for family get-to-gethers and it is now as popular as "Yuckky Beans" (French's green bean casserole). The original recipe called for 4 (4 oz.) cans of sliced mushrooms with liquid, but fresh mushrooms were on sale so I used them instead. I am trying to eat healthier, so I decreased the amount of margarine from 1/4 cup to 2 T. It called for saltine-type crackers, but I only had ritz-type crackers, so I used them instead. I decreased the amount of light cream from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup light cream and 1/4 cup of 1% milk. It called for baking it covered for 30 minutes and then uncovered for 30 minutes, but I was in a hurry (as usual) and forgot to cover the dish. When I realized what I had done, I decided to leave it uncovered for the first 30 minutes and covered it for the last 30 minutes.

I followed this recipe exactly as written and it turned out great. I love mushrooms and love having new ways to make them.
