Country Casserole

Another of John's picks....It looks lovely and smells delicious. Children who like cream corn will love this one, there is some in every bite.

2 1/2 cups cooked cubed chicken/turkey 1/2lb of bacon diced
2 tbsp flour
3 cups milk
1 can creamed corn (I used a large can)
2 cups frozen green beans
2 cups frozen sweet peas
1 cup chopped celery
1 large onion chopped
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce or soy sauce
2 tsp salt
2 cup cubed marble cheese

Fry bacon until crisp and drain on paper towel.
Reserve 3 tbsp of bacon grease in frying pan.
Add onion and celery to fry pan and saute until tender on medium heat.
Stir in flour and make a paste.
Gradually stir in milk to make a gravy.
Add seasonings and mix well.
In a large casserole dish combine chicken, beans, corn and peas.
note: I added the bacon here (oops!)
Place the cheese in the dish.
Pour the gravy over the top.
Crumble bacon on top.
Bake at 350 for 25- 35 minutes.

note: I think there should be 1 1/2 -2 tsp of Italian seasoning instead. The flavour is very mild. This recipe also needs biscuits, there is lots of gravy to sop up!

Personally I think this would be a really nice cold weather meal (like after toboganning!) I would also do it in a crock pot not a casserole dish.

Serve over rice, noodles or potatoes.
(we had boiled red potato cubes!)

"Bon Appetit!"

  1. I am not a fan of cream corn. Deb sent home a dish of this casserole for me to put in the freezer for Hal. Ooooops . . . it smelled so good that I ate it myself. And it tasted as good as it smelled.
