Reviews for Reunion Casserole
"I've made this casserole ever since it was published in "Country Woman" magazine back in 1994. It is a "go-to" for church potlucks for me. I use ground turkey for the meat and leave out the sausage for lower sodium and calories, but LOVE the green olives. You can substitute black ones, if you like :)"
"The tomato soup made this casserole sweet, which was a turn-off for me. Also it was not an attractive dish for a buffet table."
"Liked it. I substituted black beans for the corn and left out the olives and it came out good. Will make this again."
"This is a very simple to make but good tasting casserole. I personally left out the olives because I knew my son would not like them in there. However if it were just for my husband and myself I would use them."
"LOVE this recipe! I make it often. The kids groan when they see all the stuff go into the pan but dig in it when it is placed in front of them! Easy to make and to clean up. Thank you for a great recipe! It has become a favorite of ours!"
