This has been a family favorite for years. We usually double for big get togethers and bake in a lasagna pan. I like the convenience of being able to get the casserole ready the night before, especially during the hectic times of the holidays. Originally we used full fat dairy products, and large real eggs. Due to dietary concerns with some of the family, we went to light dairy and egg substitutes and the light version of the cream of mushroom soup. We always serve some kind of cranberry dish with this. My favorite is a cranberry/raspberry compote that I will be adding to JAP soon.
