When I think comfort food, I immediately think of casseroles. There’s just something comforting about putting together all the ingredients in one dish, popping it in the oven and a bit later – dinner is ready!
My mom has passed down a lot of her cookbooks to me – and she’s from Alabama, so you know there are some great comfort foods in those books! My recent find was a Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole – chicken, ham, Swiss cheese and a buttery sauce – what’s not to love?!
I think the next time I make this dish, I may try and prep most of it the night before – everything except the sauce. It would be a great time saver to chop all of the chicken and ham the night before. Doing that ahead of time, would help me get dinner on the table sooner.
For this recipe, I used Country Crock in this recipe for the casserole topping. It has 0g trans fat per serving, no cholesterol has 30% fewer calories than butter per serving. Every little bit helps when it comes to cooking. This was a great substitute for this meal. We also served this casserole with green beans making it a perfect pair.
I think this will be a dish that finds its way back on our weekly meal plan more often…. and tomorrow for my leftover lunch too!
