There is nothing easier to me than throwing a bunch of stuff in one casserole dish and cooking it up for dinner. Casseroles – at least in my house – come in all shapes and flavors. From chicken and rice to beef and noodles to veggies, cheese and yumminess!
But one thing I ALWAYS have in my house that gives any casserole I make that extra layer of delicious flavor is Country Crock Spread. In fact, I use Country Crock for everything from buttering bread to casseroles to delicious baking recipes. It spreads easily, has amazing flavor and never lets me down!
And casseroles are PERFECT in a pinch. One of my favorite ways to ‘cheat’ on casseroles is to add a can of cream of mushroom or celery to some noodles and chicken, add a little water so everything cooks well, top with some cheese and bread crumbs towards the end and bake (I used a prepackaged mix with bacon bits… yum yum)! It is so delicious and my kids LOVE it. Plus it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.
The other night, we had tumbling so I needed something FAST! I created my masterpiece, being sure to use creamy and flavorful Country Crock instead of butter, and we all ate really well in no time. All I do is mix my ingredients, add salt and pepper and then dab the top with Country Crock!
About 5 minutes before the casserole is done, I add breadcrumbs and cheese! Easy, delicious and a family favorite for sure!
