What is the secret to the BEST CASSEROLES EVER?  Well, aside from all the love you put into ’em, it should be the CREAM-iness factor.  Wouldn’t you agree?  I mean casseroles are the best and easiest dish when you’re wanting comfort food, a potluck dish, one to share with a family or a new mommy that doesn’t have the time or energy to focus on a meal.  Casseroles rule!  To me, casserole season is all the time.  I love their versatility! They’re the least complex dish to prepare.  You just toss all these wonderful ingredients in one pan and voila!

So how do I get the “A+” creaminess in my casseroles?  By not using canned “cream of” soups. Seriously!

Canned varieties are mainly loaded with MSG’s and have significantly increased in price over the years. You’re paying for what? Preservatives!   Instead, try out this dry soup mix.

You can substitute it in any of your recipes calling for cream of mushroom, cream of celery, cream of chicken, etc.  Even in your green bean casserole.  Honestly!  Your dishes will be absolutely more delicious than ever!
