Water Chestnut Casserole

"The first time I posted this recipe I accidentally left out an ingredient, the cream of mushroom soup. My Pastor's wife brought this casserole to a Pot-Luck Dinner at our church and it was so good that I begged her out of the recipe. I would like to apologize to Susie D."

  1. This didn't work out for me, but I did make changes to the recipe so that might have been the problem. I used frozen Asian blend vegetables with aspargus, chopped turkey, and omitted the butter from the casserole mixture. I also only used 8 oz of crackers and next time would even reduce that by half. The cooking time was way off for frozen veggies. I ended up with a mushy colorless casserole instead of the colorful ingredients I used. Maybe my errors will prevent someone else from disappointment & I do thank you for sharing the recipe.


<p>I'm a 60 year old man living in south Arkansas with my wonderful wife. we've been married almost 35 years and we both love to cook. I became disabled and confined to a power chair in 1990 so I have a lot of time to try new recipes. In our church I'm famous for my melt in your mouth briskets. But nobody grills a porterhouse steak like my sweetie. We are looking for new recipes all the time. When I found RecipeZaar I new I had hit the jackpot. Our favorite restaurant is an all you can eat place called The Old Feed House; <br />Catfish, froglegs,ribs, etc with all the trimmings. Standing room only at times.</p>
