My husband is not a casserole lover, but this creamy, cheesy dish is one of his favorites! Nutmeg gives it a wonderful, different taste. As a busy mother with three young sons, I put this easy recipe to good use. —Kelly Heusmann, Cincinnati, Ohio

I make this all of the time either with leftover chicken or turkey. It's AWESOME!! A great make ahead meal or one to take to someone else for them to have for a later meal. My kids always ask for seconds! Usually put a veggie with it too.
