    Nice creamy comfort food for a chilly day. This would be a good recipe for working moms. The night before you can take 10 minutes to prepare the meat and sauce ingredients, then when you get home from work the next day, toss it with the bread cubes, sprinkle on some extra cheese and place in the oven. Put your feet up for 40 minutes, have a cup of tea, maybe catch some Oprah or Dr. Phil, and voila, you have dinner! My daughter adored this and ate two large plates. The only change that I would make is to reduce the mayonnaise to 1/3 Cup but that is personal preference as I don't care for mayo too much. This is quite a budget friendly dinner as well. Made for Spring PAC. Thx for sharing your recipe, we loved it.

    This was very good and easy to make. I also used Recipe 278160. Thanks for sharing!

    This was very easy to make and came out pretty good. However I think next time I will put some of the bread pieces on top of the casserole instead of mixing it all in in order to give it some crunch. I'll let you know how that works out. Thanks!

    This is a nice, comfort-food type casserole. I had some stale rye bread so I used that. I liked the flavor it gave the casserole. Also, through this recipe, I discovered your Recipe #278160 recipe! Thanx for two great recipes. I'll be using that cream soup recipe often...... for this and other recipes!

    I added 3 garlic cloves, minced A few shakes of poultry seasoning A few shakes of sage And substituted gluten free bread - I had extra buns, so used 3 of them in place of bread Then at the table some diners added hot sauce to their portions This is a delicious quick & easy dinner. I will for sure make again. Possibly next time I might toast the bread first and reserve some for the top


<img src=""> I met my handsome airman at Misawa Air Base (in Japan) and we've been married over 4 years. We are now back Stateside, have one handsome little boy (he takes after his daddy), and are expecting another addition to the family next spring. :o) I dislike being called a "stay-at-home mom" because I feel that title is somewhat limiting. I love being a mother, but I do so much more than "just" take care of our son. Rather, I am a full-time homemaker. I strive to make our house a home for our family, and I love doing it! We believe faithful involvement in a local church is an important part of our Christian faith, and are members of a wonderful IFB church nearby. We are good baptists and love to fellowship, as well! :P As much as I enjoy finding new recipes, I am often intimidated by the "classics." Thankfully, I'm learning to get over that fear and just try things! My family is enjoying their lot as "resident guinea pigs," and is glad for the delicious things I've found through this website. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
