Baked Onion Bread

9 Sep

When my grandfather passed away, friends from all over brought by or sent TONS of awesome food.  One of our favorites was Sharon’s yummy, bubbly onion bread.  She was kind enough, at Derek’s persistence, to share her recipe.


  • one loaf sour dough bread, cut in pieces or halved
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • dash Worcestershire sauce

Combine butter, mayo, cheese.  Stir in chopped onion and Worcestershire.  Layer bread slices on baking sheet and top with butter and cheese mixture.  Bake at 400F for 20 minutes.

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole

6 Sep

I transferred this recipe from our old website, knorrbuzz.  It’s old school Knorr fare.  I introduced my grandmother to it and she makes it a couple of times a month and takes it to many family reunions, where it always seems to be a hit.  I enjoy all the flavors, as well as the different textures;  the chewiness of the wild rice and the crunch of the water chestnuts.  I very often make it without the wild rice, using just basmati.  It’s good that way but we prefer it with the wild rice; it provides a depth of flavor.  My grandma suffers from celiac disease so she makes hers compatible with a gluten free diet.  The only change needed is substituting a gluten-free creamed soup for the cream of celery.


  • 28 oz can green beans, drained
  • 3 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 onion, diced and sauteed
  • 8 oz can chopped water chestnuts, drained
  • 4 oz jar pimientos
  • 10 3/4 oz can cream of celery soup
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup long-grain rice, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup wild rice, uncooked
  • 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
  • pinch salt


Cook rices according to package directions.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 3-quart casserole dish.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly.
