There are three ingredients and one essential tool for this recipe: a bright, tart relish my Mom has been making the same way for 60+ years.
This is not the “authentic” American pantry casserole with condensed canned soup and bland canned vegetables. This uses fresh vegetables and rich butter and cream and ok, some canned fried onions.
I know I can be a bit extra. This recipe suits me, but even I only make it once a year. I’ve fiddled until I’ve found the ingredients that I like best for all the textures and flavors and think it’s worth the effort.
These are so tasty, fast, and easy to customize: also great to prep ahead!
