PostHeaderIcon Methodist Women Bearing Casseroles

It's been something of a truism in my life that major events (births, deaths, whathaveyou) have been accompanied by "Methodist women bearing casseroles".

Before moving to Texas, I grew up in Kansas City -- specifically Independence. No matter the occasion, delivering a covered dish or pie was the order of the day.

So, in honor of my late grandmothers, I will post a recipe a week from the 1968 Glenwood Park United Methodist Church's UMW cookbook.

First up: Chicken Casserole

4 cups chicken (cooked & cut up)
8 oz. sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 stick butter or margerine (melted)
40 ritz crackers (crushed)

Combine chicken, soups. Combine crackers and
melted butter. Layer in 13x9 pan.


Bake for 30 minutes @ 325 degrees.


Note: it's pretty hard to find low calorie or low fat recipes from this era cookbook... which may explain why the Methodist men died earlier than the Methodist women.
