  1. This was delicious! We really enjoyed it. I used green beans, corn, and mushrooms for my veggies. It was so simple and quick to throw together, we loved it! Thank you5 stars

  2. Thank you for the recipe! Delicious and super easy! Made this today for a Christmas party – everyone loved it and asked for the recipe! 11×15 pan, doubled the recipe, tripled the stuffing, added boiled diced potatoes with the frozen mixed veggies and 1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 can cream of celery, sour cream – salt and pepper to taste. Served with your creamy coleslaw recipe, cranberry sauce, cabbage rolls and perogies, nanaimo squares, and pineapple delight – the perfect Christmas meal!!5 stars

  3. Loved this recipe! Next time, I’ll double the stuffing on top as it was our favorite part. I finally get why people like casseroles so much. It was so easy and quick and full of veggies.5 stars

    1. Sorry to hear that, Mark! This recipe is usually a reader favorite. You will have to let us know what you think of fresh veggies!

  4. Disappointing. This recipe is very bland, try adding some onion celery and seasonings to improve it. Without it, it’s edible but nothing more.2 stars

    1. Sorry, this recipe didn’t turn out for you, Julie! It is usually a favorite with readers. For extra flavor we definitely recommend trying this casserole with homemade stuffing, the fresh herbs really add a lot of flavors.

  5. We really enjoyed the casserole. I love stuffing, so I always doctor the store bought like I was making my own, I added sautéed celery and onion, a little nutmeg and garlic powder and I prepare it with butter as it says on the box. Thank you for posting this one! I had tried other stuffing casseroles and this was the best!

  6. This is a very simple recipe, but is very unclearly explained. If this is a casserole, is everything mixed together, including the sour cream, or is the stuffing a side dish? Is the cheese you mention putting on top of the stuffing, the sour cream or some other cheese? And if using the ground beef or ham, do we still use cream of chicken soup? That doesn’t sound appetizing at all…. Sorry!

    1. Hi Tegma, all the ingredients are mixed together in the casserole dish and then topped with the stuffing mixture before baking. If using ground beef or ham you could swap the cream of chicken soup for cream of celery soup or cream of broccoli soup. It is actually more delicious than you’d think!

  7. Hi, I made this tonight and it was easy and delicious. I made it as the recipe calls for , no changes. My daughter and her husband also agree. I will definately be making it again. I also looked at all the other recipes you posted and plan on making several of them. Thanks for the great recipes.5 stars

    1. So happy to hear that everyone loved it, Nancy! Can’t wait to see how your other dishes turn out. Have fun cooking!

  8. I plan on making this tonight! Just curious if you could mix rice in with it. Do you think it would cook with just the liquids already in the recipe? Looking for a one dish kind of meal rather than making it on the side!

    1. Hmm, I haven’t tried that Laurie. But it should work. If adding rice, I would recommend adding additional liquids so it cooks thoroughly.

    2. Wanting to try this tonight but recipe left me with several questions

      could use chicken broth instead of water?

      Is the sour cream needed? My family doesn’t eat it normally.

      Do I need to add water or milk to the cans of cream of chicken? Or mix it in as is

      1. Hi Taylor, you can use chicken broth instead of water. Sour cream adds an extra creamy flavor, you can add a little extra chicken soup in its place. No extra water is needed, just add the condensed soup into the mixture as-is.
