Nutty Barley Bake Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I started bringing this distinctive dish to holiday dinners, a lot of people had never seen barley in anything but soup. They have since dubbed me "the barley lady", and now I wouldn't dare bring anything this dish. Even if I double the recipe, I come home with an empty pan. -Renate Crump, Los Angeles, California

Great- I add a pkg of sliced fresh mushrooms, a pound of breakfast sauage- browned, and a tsp of thyme. Yummy! Always a big hit at cool weather parties.
