Such an easy and tasty dish to prepare. (I had an onion I needed to use up, so I chopped it up and added it to the dish, but it is not necessary). You are so right, I did not miss the sour cream or canned soup. Thank you. :-)
I took this to a potluck at work and everybody loved it. I followed the directions, but there were little pools of butter all over the top when I took it out of the oven. I spooned them off and mixed up the casserole a bit, but it was still a little greasy for my taste. Good flavor, though.
This was good. Next time I would add more cheese.
