Kid's Fish Stick Casserole

"I know, I know--this sounds really weird. This is one of those "I don't feel much like cooking" dishes that is easy to throw together on a busy night. This tastes a lot better than it sounds and is a real family pleaser. It is also a good potluck meal--and believe me, everyone is always shocked when they ask for the recipe and discover I used fish sticks. Another great find from Quick Cooking magazine."

  1. I have to admit that I'm not fond of fish sticks. I was looking for a recipe that would make them palatable to me. This did the trick. I used 1 tsp. dried dill, and was glad to have dried onions in the house. A dinner with no chopping!!!
  2. THis was a good quick meal. It was a little bland for our tastes, so I added a little tarter sauce. I will try to add more dill next time! Thanks!
  3. Not bad... needs a little more flavor though. could barely taste the dill or the cheese or onions. Next time i'm probably going to triple those ingredients (1 1/2 the cheese). Might try the tartar sauce on the leftovers tomorrow.
  4. i have to admit, i made a special run to the grocery JUST to make this. i'm glad i did. whilst in the hub-bub of prepping it, i got recipes confused and added some chopped bread and butter pickle (as a replacement for sweet relish). not a bad addition, but i'm not sure if i'd use it again. this reheated really well. i think next time, i'll add more cheese .. but then, i just eyeballed it. i didn't measure. thanks for tasty first, seconds and thirds !
  5. We liked this a lot! I didn't have any dill, but followed the recipe otherwise. It was really mild, but I think this is what makes it a kid-pleaser. Adding tartar sauce or ketchup was the only extra thing it needed. We went ahead and used the whole box of fish sticks on it.


  1. I thought this was pretty good. My first bite I thought was a bit on the bland side, but then I added tartar sauce (because how can you eat fishsticks without it) and it was delicious. I did not have any frozen hashbrowns so I shredded 3 medium potatoes, and I used extra sharp cheddar since that is what we had. I used the Gortons Fish Tenders, they are about 2x the size of a regular fish stick, and I used the whole box (which was 16-20 of them). The only change I might make in the future is to use more fish, enough to cover the entire top with nothing of the base showing through. Thanks for a keeper. :)EDIT: Made this again for dinner tonight, this time I used the diced hashbrowns instead of shredded and the textture was much better (not so mushy) Also I added 3/4 cup of dill relish to the mix prior to baking. That pepped it up quite a bit!
