Pastry-Topped Salmon Casserole Recipe

Pastry-Topped Salmon Casserole Recipe

This costs about the same as an ordinary chicken potpie, but one bite and you'll be amazed at how much the salmon adds. With cream cheese and the flaky crust, this is no ordinary casserole. —Tyler Sherman, Williamsburg, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, chopped
