The other day, I was looking through “the pile” for casserole recipes and I came across this little gem! I think it originally came a Southern Living magazine.
You know, I was born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania, but I’ve always thought that (deep down) that I was born on the wrong side of the Mason Dixon Line! I love all things southern — the food, the hospitality. I love it all. And, I live vicariously through my Southern Living magazines!
OK, back the casserole…I pulled this recipe out with a few others (like Chicken Cannelloni with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce — which, if you haven’t already tried it, you MUST!) to try on a brisk fall day.
6 Tbsp melted butter, divided
4 cups sourdough rolls, cubed
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
2 medium sweet onions, sliced
1 (8 oz) package sliced mushrooms
1 cup white wine
1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
2 1/2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
Toss 4 Tbs melted butter with the bread, parmesan cheese and parsley; set aside.
Saute onions in remaining butter in a large skilled over medium-high heat for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Add mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes.
Stir in wine, soup, roasted red peppers and chicken. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 9×9 baking dish; top evenly with bread mixture.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Is it a Keeper?
This casserole was soooo good! I loved how all of the flavors worked so well together — the roasted red peppers, the wine, the mushrooms. And the bread was a nice, crispy, golden brown. So buttery and good!
It made a wonderful sauce that’s a shame to waste so I would serve it over egg noodles or with roasted potatoes. Or something else? What do you think?
