Caterers Casserole

"I got this recipe from a caterer. She said only cream of chicken works well with this. I experimented with wild rice once and thought it was too bland. This goes great with the basics such as a green salad and hot rolls. Prep time includes cooking meat and rice simultaneously."

  1. First thing I would like to say is that I doubled this casserole for everyone at work and added garlic powder to the beef while browning. I assembled it according to directions, and looked at it and said "OMG it's just YELLOW!!". BORING LOOKING! I probably would have passed it up at the buffet table (BUT it tasted good). So for "eye" appeal, I quickly sauteed coarsely chopped red and green peppers, wedged onion chunks and sliced baby portabellos. I then tossed it in the prepped casserole with an 8 oz carton of sour cream, and baked as directed. Well, the color just added something to the dish, that had tasted great before. My coworkers devoured this dish in no time flat!I will definitely make this again.
  2. This dish was simple to make and it tasted great. While browning the beef I added a little bit of red and green bell peppers for color along with a small onion. I did however forget the corn but my results still came out great. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
  3. I found a new comfort food! We loved this dish and I wouldn't change a thing except as the others have said, I probably would add some red and green peppers (or maybe some parsley) just for some color when serving it to guests. We loved the flavor and I can't wait to make it again. Thanks for sharing, Lynn13.
  4. I loved this recipe. I myself thought it was too yellow so I added the red and green peppers and well just for some color. This dish went fast at a family Sunday dinner potluck. Thanks for the recipe.
  5. Easy meal with good flavor. I used ground turkey instead of beef. Served with green veggies to offset the color:-)<br/><br/>Thanks for posting!!

I love to cook with friends. Grilling out by the pool is one of our favorite pastimes. One of my passions is surfing for new recipes. I love to travel. If had a carefree free month off I would propably start my travels by driving up the east and west coasts visiting winerys and looking for great local restaurants. My pet peeves are people that talk with food in their mouths, or eat while talking on the phone and double dipping breadsticks or chips.
