Top Review by Montana Heart Song

This was good. I did not use the corn, but chopped hominey instead. The size of the casserole dish was not stated and I used a 9X13 casserole glass dish. The parmesan cheese amount was not stated so I lightly sprinkled across the top, probably 1/2 cup of dried parmesan cheese. Because it was dried, I drizzled melted margarine in long strips on top. I used Sysco chicken base with water for the broth. This casserole was baked and done in 25 minutes, perhaps because of the pan size. This would be a dish that could be made ahead,refrigerated or frozen
to be cooked whenever needed. It would need longer cooking time, perhaps 45 minutes. I would also serve heated Alfredo sauce as a gravy if desired. Thanks!.
