Question of the Week #40 – 2013: Culture

Question of the Week #40 – 2013: Culture

What was your favorite casserole when you were growing up?

My two cents (but please share yours):

My favorite was, and still is, chicken tetrazzini. I’ve learned to make healthier versions that keep the flavor.


  1. It wasn’t necessarily my favorite, but it showed up just about every week anyway: the ‘hash’ that contained all the leftover from the previous days. Parents were young during the Depression and learned the lesson of use it up! The gravy that held it all together was good, good, good though.

    • Hi Kay, What was in that gravy? It sounds like a great idea. Cheers, Ashley

    • Kay, your response takes me back sixty years. My mother made roast for Sunday dinner every week of my life when I was growing up, and she would usually make hash out of the leftovers. It was often better than the original roast.

  2. No particular casserole stands out in my mind. Mother didn’t make them often, except for the hash mentioned in my reply to Kay.

    • Hash reminds me of some great meals, David. My grandmother took leftover beef hash, added a little mayonnaise and a starch (mashed potatoes, bits of bread, whatever she could find) to bind it into patties, and fried them in a skillet in real butter. Yummy treats every summer. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
