The holiday season is always busy, so my family and I are looking for quick and easy recipes to make and share. This recipe for Spinach Mushroom Casserole is a hearty vegetarian dish that can be either a main dish for a busy weeknight or a side for a special holiday meal.

One of my first stops for everything I need for the season is Sam’s Club, for both groceries and for gifts. Buying in bulk at Sam’s Club ensures that I have the ingredients I need on hand, so I can avoid last minute grocery runs! Two ingredients I picked up last week that come in especially handy during the holiday season are Swanson® Chicken Broth and Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup.
I use Swanson® Chicken Broth for making my holiday stuffing, and for making delicious soup with leftovers, like the Turkey Corn Chowder I made a few weeks ago. The Swanson® Chicken Broth is 100% natural, and I love that it comes in a handy resealable package, which makes it easy to store in the refrigerator after opening. The Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup comes in a convenient 10 soup pantry pack and is perfect for recipes. I frequently use it to make a quick and creamy sauce for casseroles. It has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives so I feel confident serving it to my family.
I like this Spinach Mushroom Casserole because it is versatile enough to be either a main dish or a side dish. My oldest daughter is vegetarian, so I always want to make sure that I provide some good options for her at the holidays. Plus I love how easy it is to make!
The dish is made by piling the casserole dish with layers of bread cubes, mushrooms, cheese and spinach. Then I use the Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, mixed with some milk and an egg, as a quick cream sauce and pour it over the casserole. As the casserole bakes the sauce thickens and soaks into the bread cubes and veggies, and the result is an easy dinner with lots of vegetables and enough cheesy creaminess to satisfy everyone.
It would be easy to change up the recipe to match your family’s taste too. You could add onions, replace the spinach with kale or use Swiss cheese instead of mozzarella. The possibilities are endless!
- 2 T. butter
- 10 oz. mushrooms, chopped
- 1 package of frozen spinach, thawed
- 6 slices of white bread
- 1 c. mozzarella cheese
- 1 can Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
- ½ c. milk
- 1 egg
- ¼ t. salt
- ¼ t. pepper
- Preheat the oven to 375.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute the mushrooms until they are browned, about 8 minutes.
- While they are browning cut bread into cubes and make sure all the water is squeezed out of the thawed spinach.
- Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
- Put ½ the bread cubes, spinach and mushrooms in the casserole dish and top with ½ the cheese.
- Repeat the layers with remaining ingredients.
- In a large measuring cup whisk the Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup with the milk and an egg. Pour over the casserole pan.
- Bake for 45 minutes, until the top just starts to brown.
Another nice thing about being a member of Sam’s Club and buying in bulk is that I always have extra food on hand to donate. While I use Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup frequently in recipes, I probably won’t use ten cans this month. I’ve used two already, put three in the pantry and I am donating the other five to my local food pantry, the Sullivan Food Cupboard, along with some of the extra cartons of Swanson® Chicken Broth, some stuffing mix and canned fruit and vegetables. My community food bank coordinates donations from all the churches and community groups in town, and distributes it to those who need help this holiday season. The bulk packages at Sam’s Club make giving to others even easier.
Later this month Sam’s Club will be hosting their annual Holiday Taste of Sam’s event, which is a huge in-club demo sampling occasion. On Dec. 21 & 22nd they will be sampling Swanson® Chicken Broth with Idahoan Mashed Potatoes. Sounds yummy, and to make it even better there will be a temporary price reduction of $1.50 off Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup and Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup for the event.
