GBP's 101 Cozy Casseroles REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

It's here, it's here - I opened my little mailbox and found..........
Gooseberry Patch's 101 Cozy Casseroles
First I have to say HOW much I ♥ this 101 series by Gooseberry Patch! These beautiful, full-color (every recipe has it's very own photo) books are drool-worthy -- EVERY PAGE!!

So confession time, when I first got my review list for this year's releases and saw that I would be reviewing 101 Cozy Casseroles I was a bit scared...not because I don't love casseroles, I do...not because casseroles are time-consuming or hard to make, they are not. My reasoning, because they tend to be laden with ingredients like potatoes, noodles, pastas, rices, etc...all foods a person who eats low carb tends to avoid. My first inclination was to excuse myself from this review -- then I had 2 thoughts.....I am always making higher carb dishes for company, potlucks and the kids AND I am always telling folks that I have no problems finding acceptable things to eat in ALL situations. This review will be a test of that :)

My first pass thru this book netted 3 very yummy looking recipes that would be perfect for me. On my second pass, I found a few more recipes that would require just a little tweeking to be lower carb. This isn't going to be hard at all. ALL of the recipes look comforting, scrumptious, easy-to-prepare (with staple ingredients) and extremely budget and family-friendly!

The first recipe I tried was ....

Clili Relleno Casserole
GBP"S 101 Cozy Casseroles (submitted by: Georgia Mallory from Fullerton, CA)
(Printable Version)

7-oz can whole green chilies
16-oz pkg shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
16-oz pkg shredded cheddar cheese, divided
7-oz pkg chopped green chilies
salt and pepper to taste
6 eggs, beaten
13-oz can evaporated milk (I used 1 cup heavy cream to lower the carbs)
Optional: salsa and sour cream

Slit whole chilies and remove the seeds; rinse and dry. Lay whole chilies, skin-side down, in a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish; sprinkle with half of each cheese. Top with chopped chiles, remaining cheese, salt and pepper. In a bowl, combine eggs and milk; pour over top. Bake, uncovered at 350°F for 45 minutes. Serve with salsa or sour cream, if desired. Serves 8.

I served this casserole as a side-dish for Cinco de Mayo -- it would also make a wonderful breakfast, brunch, luncheon dish or as a meatless main for supper. This was filling, fast and oh, so good!!

    I have to say my go to casserole is my Baked Egg Casserole, full of ham, peppers, onions, cheese and egg, stirred up with bread cubes. Delicious :)

  1. A family favorite casserole dish of ours, has always been Chicken Mushroom & Rice. I've made this recipe since the children were small. They're in college now, and they still love it! Thanks for all you do on Facebook, and for offering this lovely giveaway!

  1. Sandy Burton said...:

    Does Chicken Pot Pie count as a casserole? It's something everyone loves! When the kids were all away, it was easy to divvy up into individual casseroles and freeze, so hubby and I could have something yummy and easy on nights we didn't want to cook.

  1. Pamela Fierro said...:

    Mine is a chicken tetrazzini - chicken and vegetables in a cheesy sauce with spaghetti. It is what I make to bring to families with new babies or illness. Unfortunately I do not make it enough for my own family - it is one of their favorites! Better put it on the menu soon.

  1. Pamela Fierro said...:

    My favorite is a chicken tetrazzini casserole. It is chicken and vegetables in a cheesy sauce, baked with spaghetti. It is my go-to dish when I need to take something to a family with a new baby or illness. Unfortunately, I don't make it nearly enough for my own family - it is everyone's favorite! I need to put it on the menu soon.

  1. Erin said...:

    How fun, my favorite casserole is Mexican chicken.


  1. Shannon said...:

    I, just like you, don't do a lot of casseroles. However, our family favorite, and one of the only casseroles I make is green bean casserole. It's even better with beans straight from the garden. And if I don't have french fried onions on hand, we top with bread crumbs.

  1. Ann said...:

    Our familys favorite casserole is "Corn Pudding", we make this at every get together. I do like casseroles and try to use low-calorie and low-sugar ingredients, no heavy cream. The giveaway looks fabulous especially that fantastic apron!!

  1. Shannon said...:

    I, just like you, don't do a lot of casseroles. However our family favorite, which is one of the only casseroles I make, is Green Bean casserole. We always have beans on hand from the garden, so this is a great staple to any meal.

  1. LDH said...:

    I would love to win this lovely book. Of all the cookbooks I have, I do not have a casserole one. My gang all love a very standard and comforting classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese but I also like to make Chicken Noodle Casserole as it is enjoyed by young and old alike.

  1. Shelley said...:

    Does homemade mac 'n cheese count as a casserole? It's everyone's favorite and easy to vary by adding veggies or meats to it :)

  1. Miz Gala said...:

    A new one: chicken tamale casserole. I liked it and it got a thumbs up from the guys.

  1. tiredmamma said...:

    I would have to say, due to it's versatility and easy ingredients: broccoli, rice and cheese casserole. It's served at Thanksgiving and Easter and possibly other notable dates! I love how you can add chicken and turn it into a total meal or eat without meat and still have a meatless dinner option. BTW I love this site and the bible verses..keeps me along a better path..

  1. Lorri Parsons said...:

    My families favorite is Hashbrown casserole with Jimmy Dean Sausage!!! It is awesome. But looks like you have alot of things i would love to try>

  1. Lieb said...:

    My go to recipe for a casserole is baked ziti. Lots of cheese and any pasta I may happen to have.

  1. Autumn said...:

    My go-to casserole--of course, Tuna Casserole.

  1. chiaramonte said...:

    My favorite casserole is also chicken tetrazzini! When the weather dictates warmer dishes, it is the first recipe we make! Can't wait to find MORE recipes in this new cookbook! Thanks for the great enticing review!

  1. LADYBUGMEG78 said...:

    Our favorite go to casserole would be Shepards Pie. There is always left over veggies in the fridge just waiting to get thrown into a baking dish with some hamburger meat and cheese.

  1. Ann Marie said...:

    My go to casserole recipe is from my 1968 Home Economics class! (please don't do the age math!) It's called "Beef and Biscuit Casserole", and you line the casserole dish with those pop-can biscuits and top with a mix of ground beef, cheese, lots of veggies - it doesn't sound good as I'm typing it but it is comfort-food-fine!

  1. shassysue said...:

    My favorite is Tator Tot Casserole!! It is my favorite comfort food as well. It is layered with ground beef, french cut green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and then tator tots on top. Super YUMMY!!

  1. RCRMom said...:

    My favorite go to casserole is cheesy potatoes and I add veggies and ham

  1. MommaDonna said...:

    I am rather new to the casserole making crowd, however, I did just help a friend make 4 large casseroles for a soccer party she was having this weekend. It was a Spaghetti Pie . . awesome and so easy and it allowed her to pull off feeding 45 people and time to enjoy the evening herself also! It had a pound of ground beef and a pound of italian sausage browned and drained. Add 1/4 cup chopped green pepper and 1/2 cup chopped onion and 3 garlic cloves minced and sauteed in the meet mixture. Add a can of diced tomatoes and tomato paste. You can add mushrooms if you want. Then a can of Spicy V8. Cook the spaghetti and line the casserole pan, spread a 16 oz carton of cottage cheese on top of the spaghetti then finish with the meat sauce and Parmesan and mozzarella cheese . . it is delicious! Serve with some crusty bread and a salad and you're good to go! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

  1. MommaDonna said...:

    I'm new to casseroles . . but I helped a friend make an awesome one this past week. It was spaghetti pie and it's certainly a favorite of mine and my sons now! Ground beef, Italian sausage browned with green pepper, onion and garlic. Mix in Spicy V-8 Juice, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, some mushrooms . . spread cottage cheese on top, then your meat/tomato mixture and top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses . Bake and it's awesome!

  1. tylo said...:

    A favorite of mine is Unstuffed Peppers. The flavor is every bit of a stuffed pepper but you use chopped peppers instead. Everyone that has asked for this recipe likes the ease of making this.

  1. linda said...:

    My go to is baked mac and cheese-pure and simple

    My sister got me hooked our family on Tuna Noodle Hot Dish. It's so yummy and easy too! This is not a recipe we get tired of and can easy change up when needed.

  1. Grammy said...:

    My stand-by casserole is a quick, easy and delicious Chicken Casserole. It has been a family favorite for many years and has been passed down to my children and is loved by the grandchildren.

  1. tiredmamma said...:

    I have the usual go to casserole as my favorite: broccoli, rice and cheese. It goes with everything, beef, chicken and pork. I also love it's versatility, as you can add meat or eat it meatless. BTW I love reading your bible verses, they are so uplifting! Thanks for a wonderful site, I enjoy all of your recipes.

  1. Lori said...:

    You just can't beat a great casserole! My family has many favorites. Cheesy Potatoes, Tuna & Noodle, Chicken & Rice, Tater Tot Casserole and Cheesy Egg & Ham bake just to name a few.
    You always have the best giveaways here. Not only the wonderful GBP cookbooks but you are always so generous to add your beautiful aprons! Thanks so much for a chance to win.

  1. BumbleBeeLane said...:

    My go to casserole would be baked Macaroni and Cheese.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  1. Aunt Leora said...:

    My go to recipe is my overnite french toast bake with carmel and pecans.

  1. h2osmom said...:

    we love pasta dishes and tater tot casserole!

  1. My "go-to" casserole is one that we call Seven Can Casserole - {1}a can of cream of chicken soup, {2}a can of cream of mushroom or celery soup, {3}a 5-ounce can of evaporated milk, {4}a can of water chestnuts (chopped and drained) {5}a large can of white-meat chicken (drained BUT better made with cut-up pieces of leftover roast chicken), {6}a 6-ounce can of mushroom pieces, drained, {7} one large can of chow mein noodles. Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish and set aside. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT chow mein noodles and stir in 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce and 2 teaspoons curry powder. Spread in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle chow mein noodles evenly over the top and dot with small pieces of butter. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Serves 4 to 6 and it is soooo good! A friend of my mother's, Natalie Palmer, shared this recipe with us in the 1960's and in the 1970's our daughter Ami won 1st place in a State 4-H Reddy Foods competition with this recipe. Lots of memories and good taste with this one! judi leaming

  1. Debbie Baker said...:

    We do lots of casseroles, but our favorite is Pizzagehtti.

  1. Jennifer Gail said...:

    I love to make cole slaw but I don't guess that is a casserole.

  1. Paisley said...:

    My family loves my chicken and wild rice casserole. It's super easy to make and if I use microwaveable rice I only have one dish to clean up.

  1. Sue D said...:

    My favorite casserole is a chicken pot pie casserole with biscuits on top.

  1. Vanssmomc said...:

    I must admit our favorite casserole is still the old standby of tuna casserole, and the creamier the better!!

  1. susi917 said...:

    New cookbook looks awesome...and I LOVE aprons! My go-to casserole is Hashbrown Casserole. I usually use ham, but hamburger is very good for a change! P.S. Pick me!!! :)

  1. YUM - I'd say my go-to casserole is the Swiss cheese/stuffing/chicken casserole. Come to think of it, I haven't made that in a while and it sounds good right now. :)

  1. Mrs.T said...:

    My go-to casserole is probably microwave macaroni and cheese. The ingredients are always on hand and the microwave method is simple and quick. Thanks for the fabulous giveaway. I love Gooseberry Patch!

  1. Shug said...:

    This is EXCITING!! I am always on the lookout for good and easy casseroles...both of our girls are teachers, and they both have three very active kids..(total of six grandkids) Of course, I want them all to have good nutritious meals and not fast foods for dinner each evening..Casseroles are usually not that difficult to fix, and with a variety of recipes, and a little help from Shug, I know that these kids are eating healthy...
    One of our all time favorite casseroles is a chicken spaghetti dish....Yummy!

  1. Sonia said...:

    my favorite casserole is a Mexican Casserole, Doritos, beef, cheese cream of mushroom soup, taco seasoning, can add peppers, onions, olives.. what ever you like. :)

  1. I could always use a new GB cookbook, I"m in and I'll have to try that recipe above, it looks like a winner! Please add me to this great giveaway, and thanks!!

  1. The Wotring's said...:

    I would have to say my favorite go to casseroles is chicken and dumplings in the crockpot(it's from another GBP cookbook).

  1. The Wotring's said...:

    Chicken and dumplings in the crock pot. It is a great recipe I got from another GBP cookbook.

  1. Patti Jane said...:

    At our house, we love a dish using Jiffy Corn Muffin mix as the topping, with layers of taco seasoned ground meat, refried beans, shredded Cheese, a sprinkle of green chilies, tortilla chips, sweet corn and sometimes cheese mixed in the corn muffin batter. A sweet layering of some or all of these comes out of the oven with the most wonderful smell and makes a super one dish hit! Thanks, Patti in Montana

  1. Connie said...:

    Our favorite casserole is Baked Spaghetti using leftover spaghetti, add some cheese on the top and bake it! Great giveaway!

  1. Patti Jane said...:

    One of my favorites is when I use a Corn Muffin mix recipe used as a topper over layers of refried beans, cheese, taco seasoned ground beef, sweet corn, maybe a sprinkle of green chilies in there and a sprinkle of cheese just below the sweet cornbread batter on top. Yummy! Sometimes I use a single layer of tortilla chips instead of corn.

  1. Patti said...:

    Thanks for the chance to win this great book.....Our favorite Casseroles are tuna noodle & Chicken Noodle!

  1. Unknown said...:

    I love casseroles! It's hard to pick one favorite, so I'm going to pick 2! I love Tamale Pie and also Sausage, Green bean Potato casserole (that one is from my family, pretty fancy name, huh?). My son loves the sausage casserole, it's comfort food!

  1. Kris/Mom said...:

    I would have to say my favorite and easiest to make is Shepards's Pie - 5 ingredients: hamburger, tomato soup, green beans, mashed (instant) potatoes and cheese. Hope I win!

  1. maickes said...:

    I grew up on casseroles -- love them! My mom used to make a 6-layer Casserole, and I make it these days, too. You layer (in order) sliced, peeled potatoes, slivered/sliced carrots, chopped celery, diced onion, raw crumbled ground beef, and pour spaghetti or tomato sauce over top. You can add your own spices as desired. Bake at 350 until the potatoes are tender. It sounds plain, but it's awesome! I also love to make homemade buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese casserole! If you're used to making a homemade cheese sauce with your normal mac&cheese, then just add some ranch and buffalo sauce to your sauce before you mix with your pasta. The amount varies on one's taste. Sometimes I throw my chicken in with the sauce, and sometimes I just top the casserole with it. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over top, and then drizzle buffalo sauce and/or ranch dressing over that. Cover with foil, bake until bubbly. Remove the foil and allow to brown lightly. I'm sure you could use bleu cheese, if you wanted. I'm just not a fan.

    I'm a full-time college student, I work part-time, and I'm helping to raise my boyfriend's 2 and 5 year old boys. This casserole recipe book would be AMAZING for me, as I barely have enough time to cook a full-course dinner through the week, or even on the weekends when work consumes most of my time as a waitress.

  1. Velinajo said...:

    One of the first things my mom taught me to cook was a Tuna Casserole, that was over 40 years ago; I was about 6 or 7. It is such a comfort food to me, I love it. At our house when someone arrived the first words were "are you hungry?" My love of cooking as sharing brings such joy and happiness, I do it today for friends who work two or more jobs, they are so happy when I how up with a homemade dish of my cooking. I love the hugs and smiles.

  1. You're right, all of the casseroles I remember making have pasta or carbs of some sort in them! There are two that make me smile thinking of busy nights when my girls were living at home and in school - Hamburger casserole and tuna casserole.

  1. Balisha said...:

    My favorite casserole to make is called in our family..."Jimmy's Casserole," named after my brother. It's filled with noodles, ground beef, sliced ripe olives, mushrooms, onions, and chunks of cheese...all mixed with a tomato sauce. It was one dish that my little brother would eat when he was a we had it often.No one can make it like my Mom did.

  1. Gail
    My favorite easy casserole is one I call 'Mexican' casserole. It's hamburger, onion, grn chilli's,corn, salsa and mayo mixed; with grated cheese and tortilla chips on top.
    I was raised with a lot of casseroles and made many while feeding my own children. My husbands family had never heard of them!! Amazing!

  1. Oh My Goodness I would LOVE to win...PlEASE put my name in the hat!!!
    Thank you SO MUCH,

  1. My FAVORITE go to casserole is what I call "The Kitchen Sink". It does not always have the same ingredients, It consists of CLEANING out the leftovers from a few days. It takes a little inventiveness and Tweaking but I never hear ANY COMPLAINTS. Oh and LOTS of times if there isn't much in the LEFTOVER category "EGGS" become the filler... I LOVE the recipe here today, YUMMMMY!
    Thank you for the giveaway...
    Have a wonderful week,

  1. YUMMY! I have been collecting Gooseberry Patch recipe books for years and years! How fun for you to get a sneak peak!
    Count me in your giveaway! Thank you!!!
    Happy Mother's Day Gail!

    My favorite casserole is a broccoli/chicken/cheese casserole. It's yummy.

  1. Lisa Cox said...:

    I follow your blog, am subscribed on Facebook, and follow you on Twitter.

  1. A favorite for my family is chicken-broccoli casserole. Roasted chicken breasts, broccoli florets, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and velveeta, topped with Ritz crackers and baked. The sour cream in the sauce gives it a little something extra and we all love it. It is always a favorite at church pot luck dinners also.

  1. Sally said...:

    Hmmm... I'm not sure if this qualifies as a casserole or not - but chicken spaghetti. It's my family's fave :)

    okay, my favorite go to casserole is probably sphaghetti pie casserole.

  1. Mary in MN said...:

    i just started following you on Pinterest too!

  1. Jody said...:

    My favorite casserole can make use of almost any kind of meat. Brown chicken, pork steak, any kind of beef steak, hamburger or sausage.
    That goes in the bottom of a large casserole dish. Top with thin sliced potatoes, chopped onion, chopped green peppers, peas, carrots, green beans or what have you. Make a gravy out of your pan drippings adding as much cream of mushroom soup, french onion soup, cream of chicken soup or whatever you have in the pantry that will go with the meat and pour over the potatoes and meat and put in the oven on low all day while you take care of other things. Salt and pepper for the meat and potatoes is to your taste. Believe me the meat will fall apart and everyone will be digging for more potatoes and gravy. So make plenty of gravy! Enjoy

  1. pilarfarmer said...:

    my favorite cassarole is green chili enchilada.

    My favorite is one my daughter loved as a child--especially when my Mom made it. A simple,ham and noodle casserole, with peas (fresh is best)and jazzed up with a just hint of horseradish. Freezes well so it is ready to go when needed. It's made many an appearance at pot-lucks or taken to families during illness or difficult times. All that is needed to complete the meal is a salad.
