  • 1 cup(s) sliced button mushrooms (1/2 container)
  • 2 medium celery
  • chopped

  • 1 cup(s) chicken stock
  • no salt
  • 1-2 pinch(es) salt and pepper
  • 1 can(s) French fried onions
  • 1/2 package(s) real bacon bits *optional*
Intructions :
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees and coat a 9x13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Cover the bottom of the casserole with tater tots and let soften slightly (I toss them in the microwave for 1 minute) then break them apart slightly with your fingers. *You may use frozen shredded hashbrowns if you like*
  • Dice all veggies into uniform pieces and add to the top of the potatoes reserving 1 tbsp of the green part of the scallion onions to garnish.
  • Drain green beans and spread evenly over veggies.
  • Top the veggies with 1/2 small container of French fried onions and 1/2 of the shredded cheese.*Use any kind you like but my favorite is pepper jack or a spicy red pepper variety gives er a kick!
  • In a smaller mixing bowl combine condensed soup and cream cheese. Microwave for 1-2 minutes just to get it warm so it easily stirs together. Slowly add the chicken stock mixing as you go. You want just enough stock to make it a thick gravy. *You may not use all of the stock use your judgment.
  • Add the herbs and spices into the soup mixture.
  • Pour evenly over the veggies & cheese.
  • Cover with foil & bake at 300 degrees for 35 min.
  • Remove casserole from oven and top with bacon bits
  • remaining shredded cheese & French fried onions.Bake uncovered for 10 min just to melt the cheese & crisp up the onions.
  • Garnish with the green scallion onion and serve. This is amazing alongside any beef
  • chicken or pork. Delicious! ]
