Hi there friends!
It’s Thursday…that means Throwback Thursday! I haven’t done a throwback post in quite some time. So…here we go!
The vintage cookbook that I chose for today’s post is from 1968. It is Better Homes and Gardens’ Casserole Cookbook. I don’t know about you, but I love casseroles. I love gathering everything, putting it in one dish, placing it in the oven and enjoying the wonderful aroma as it bakes!
The recipe I chose was for “Chicken Chip Bake”. As I read the recipe ingredients, I figured it would turn out like a hot chicken salad. So, I checked the handy-dandy, day-old rack at my supermarket and found some great rolls for my “hot chicken salad”.
While it turned out quite yummy, I will be “spicing it up” a good bit next time, because it was a little on the bland side for our taste. It is a great base recipe, but there are all kinds of ways you could make this your own. I know I’ll be adding some jalapenos, red pepper flake and green onions next time! 🙂
As you can see in the recipe, it calls for almonds and MSG. I didn’t have any almonds on hand, so I used walnuts and 1 teaspoon of seasoning salt in place of the MSG and regular salt. Both substitutions worked great!
Here’s a picture of what it looked like in the book:
And here is mine…definitely not as fancy-smancy looking. 🙂
And then on a yummy, warm, toasted roll…
It was a hit, even with my pickiest eater!
