A flop!

December 2nd, 2010 at 01:13 am

I just hate it when I try a new recipe and it's awful. I mean, the ingredients were good, but the taste was...well, it left a lot to be desired.

I had a recipe I had found in a magazine for an onion bread casserole. Easy enough...saute 3 onions, tear up a loaf of French bread, add 2 cups of shredded Cheddar cheese, 2 eggs, teaspoon of nutmeg, and 3 cups of milk. Mix together and put in fridge overnight. Bake for 45 minutes at 350. Sounds decent, right?

Wrong! It was soupy and I had put it in the fridge overnight to "soak" so the bread would have the egg and milk mixture throughout. The bread did rise like it was supposed to in the oven. But, it was soupy and pretty bland. I guess I'm used to more flavorful stuff. I was disappointed. We ate it, because it wasn't dreadful, but I doubt if I try it again as it is written.

Guess it's live and learn. I didn't buy anything I didn't already have. Just wonder what I could add to make it better. Any ideas?

    I would say that some of seasoning was left off the recipe when written as teaspoon of nutmeg wouldn't be enough flavouring.

    This recipe may give you some ideas.

    I brought home some leftover turkey and dressing from Thanksgiving and made a casserole of it by mixing them with mushroom soup. It's pretty bad. I am eating it in small doses, but I'm really disappointed at the result.

    TWKitty -- I'd say you were correct.
