Bake at 350°F. for 40 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
I have a recipe very similar to this only it doesn't have carrots or cheese in it. But it is a very awesome recipe and will try it with the carrots and cheese. I have adapted my recipe by adding 2 cans of chicken breast meat and instead of saving stuffing mix to sprinkle on top of the casserole, I include it in the casserole and use canned fried onions to sprinkle instead. What a kick in flavor that makes.
Love this recipe!
I've been making this for years , adding onion. I often brown smoked sausage and add to make it an entree. Delicious!
I had to make some adjustments to it only because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. I first used buttery round crackers for the bottom and top layers because I didn't have the stuffing and I microwaved the vegetables too instead of boiling them and cut them in rounds instead of shredding them. I literally ate it all over three days the whole casserole myself. I also substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream as I didn't have it on hand and it was still good. Will be making this recipe again and thanks for sharing it.
I have a question. Do I just use a small can of cream of chicken condensed soup ?? Also do you think adding 1-2 eggs to the soup mix would hurt anything ?? I would actually like to mix it all up in one bowl vs layering. That should be okay ?
Hi. I would like to make this. My question is, do you cook the stuffing mix first according to package directions, or just stir the dry stuffing mix with the butter? I feel that it would be too dry. Thank you
You don't need to prepare the stuffing according to package directions for this recipe. Simply combine the stuffing with the butter as directed. There is plenty of moisture in the recipe to hydrate the stuffing, and the stuffing/butter mixture you reserve to sprinkle on top provides a slightly crunchy texture on top.
