Nutty Barley Bake Recipe

Nutty Barley Bake Recipe

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

"I did not use the butter; but put all the ingredients into the microwave. I cooked it on a lower setting and it was delicious. I liked lowering the fat content and it was nice and moist without the butter."

"This recipe is so good that I've served it with everything from roast beef to roast chicken to ham. It started as a holiday instead-of-stuffing dish for my family, but now I make it any time of the year."
