Tuna casserole just out of the oven

Tuna casserole is a casserole primarily made with pasta (or rice) and canned tuna, with canned peas and corn sometimes added. The dish is often topped with potato chips, corn flakes, bread crumbs or canned fried onions. Tuna casserole is a common dish in some parts of the United States, prepared using only nonperishable pantry ingredients.

Casseroles became popular in American households in the 1950s mainly because the ingredients were cheap and easy to find at the supermarket. A can of tuna, a can of vegetables, a can of soup, and a package of egg noodles becomes a prepared family dinner in around half an hour. Tuna casserole can also be frozen or refrigerated and then reheated to be eaten the next day. Tuna casserole is popular to take to potlucks. In small communities, it may be taken to the home of someone who is sick or going through bereavement as a gesture of kindness.

While there are countless variations on tuna casserole, historically it is made with egg noodles, chopped onion, shredded cheddar cheese, frozen green peas, canned and drained tuna, condensed cream of mushroom or cream of celery soup, sliced mushrooms and crushed potato chips. The cooked noodles, onion, cheese, peas, tuna, soup and mushrooms are mixed in a baking dish, with the potato chips and more cheese sprinkled on top, and then baked.

Also common in most parts of Australia this casserole is also called tuna mornay and served with a Mornay sauce (Béchamel with cheese added, or cheese sauce). Peas and corn are usually added. Additionally, wheat pasta is used rather than egg noodles.

Baked Buttermilk Mustard Chicken Thighs w/ Egg Noodle Fettuccine, Sauteed Mushrooms,…

Today’s Menu: Baked Buttermilk Mustard Chicken Thighs w/ Egg Noodle Fettuccine, Sauteed Mushrooms, and Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread.

 

 

Well it looks as though my Dad will be coming home Saturday, barring no setbacks, from the rehab center. It will be nice to have home Baked Buttermilk Mustard Chicken Thighs 004again! Really had no idea on what to have for dinner. I went to Kroger to pick up some Milk and Bread and came back with everything to make dinner tonight. Kroger had Chicken Thighs on sale and I knew I had found dinner! I had never tried any recipes with Chicken Thighs but I keep hearing on the cooking shows on TV on how good they are I thought I would give them a chance. For dinner I prepared Baked Buttermilk Mustard Chicken Thighs w/ Egg Noodle Fettuccine, Sauteed Mushrooms, and Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread.

 

 

I found the Baked Buttermilk Mustard Chicken Thighs on-line at http://www.food.com/. Very good website stocked full of all kinds of recipes. To prepare the marinade for the Chicken I’ll need; 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon dried minced onion flakes (optional), 1/2 cup buttermilk, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons honey, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon dried ground sage, and 6 chicken thighs, skinless and boneless. I first preheated the oven to 425 degrees F. I then combined the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese; set aside. Combined the buttermilk, Dijon, honey, salt, pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, and sage. Then coated the thighs in one portion of the buttermilk mixture, then dredge in the bread crumbs; and discarded any used buttermilk or breadcrumbs that were left over. Placed the thighs on a plate so that they are not overlapping and let chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and place in oven for 5 minutes to preheat the sheet; place thighs on the sheet and bake for 24 – 30 minutes, turning the pieces over half though the baking time. We have another keeper recipe! The Chicken Thighs had just an incredible flavor from all the ingredients and Buttermilk along with a nice crunch to them from the Bread crumbs.

 
To go with the delicious Chick Thighs I prepared some Al Dente Egg Fettuccine Noodles, Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms, and baked a loaf of the La Brea Bakery Take and Bake Artisan Multi Grain Loaf. Everything together made one fantastic dinner! To serve it I added the Mushrooms to the Pasta and served the Chicken Thighs on top of a bed of Pasta. For dessert later a Banana! Not a Banana Split or Bananas Foster, a Banana. They had them on sale at Kroger!
