Barley Bake

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours


8 servings

This is a delicious change of pace from potato casseroles. Slivered almonds give it a nice crunch.—Lamar Lyons Parker, Peoria, Illinois


  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 5 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1 cup uncooked quick-cooking barley
  • 2 cups vegetable broth, divided
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds


  1. In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, celery and onions in butter until tender. Add barley; cook and stir until barley is golden brown, about 6-7 minutes.
  2. In a greased 2-qt. baking dish, combine barley mixture, 1 cup broth and parsley. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
  3. Uncover; stir in almonds and remaining broth. Bake 45-50 minutes longer or until barley is tender.
