I found this in one of my Paula Deen cookbooks. It's so easy and so fast, and can definitely be made after a long day at work.

Wonderful casserole! I didn't use curry b/c my hubby doesn't like that. But I put a cup each of diced onion and celery, and used the regular Pep. Farm stuffing mix on top. The mayonnaise is amazing with it - it adds a tangy taste. The butter on top is awesome too. Thanks for posting.
