Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


Interesting casserole which we enjoyed. An onion wasn't in the ingredients but was mentioned in the directions so I added one chopped onion. Also the cooking temp was not mentioned so I cooked my casserole at 375. A great casserole to use up items that are probably almost always on hand. Thanks for sharing!
