Reviews forReunion Casserole
"I recently tried this recipe and really wanted to like it but both my husband and I agreed that it didn't have much flavor and was really lacking something. Since it made a big batch, I will try and see what I can do to doctor it up so it doesn't go to waste. I did follow the recipe as written - only substitution I made was to use my homemade tomato soup and sauce instead of the commercial varieties. That should have only made the flavor better!"
"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 :)"
"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!"
