This shit is the shit.  I’ve never fed this to anyone that didn’t ask for the recipe.  It’s a little bit time consuming, but it is otherwise stupid easy.

It used to be that you could get a roasted, seasoned veggie medley from Schwan’s.  There was a recipe in the catalog for making a casserole of it with chicken broth and salsa, which you topped with sliced cheese I believe.  I added bacon right off the bat, because a meal without meat struck me as weird.

Once I couldn’t get the pre-fab veggies anymore (every time Schwan’s carries something you really like, it gets discontinued) I faked my own using a roasted red potato recipe I found online (AllRecipes?) and modified; then just threw in a can of green beans (it was mostly potatoes and broccoli as it came from Schwan’s).  Then hubby improved it with the suggestion of using cream of chicken soup instead of broth, and we started using a shredded colby/jack cheese blend to top it, as we tend to keep that around more than slices.

It’s developed into something we really like.  It’s good served as a main dish with some canned Southern-style biscuits or as a side to hot wings.  You can also skip the casserole part and just serve the roasted & seasoned taters because they’re quite good on their own.

I used this kit, this kit, this kit and one random freebie element which I did not make note of where I got it.
