I enjoyed Mom's old-fashioned buttermilk casserole recipe as a child and made it often for my own family. Now that our children are grown, I make this for senior citizen lunches. —Alice Fraser, Meridale, New York

Buttermilk Noodle Casserole Tips

How can I make my own buttermilk?

You don't need to run to the grocery store if you find you're out of buttermilk. Make your own! For every 1 cup of buttermilk, place 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to measure 1 cup. Let stand 5 minutes before using.
