I’m hoping one day to have made vegan versions of all my childhood favorites (chicken and corn chowder, Thanksgiving dressing, etc.). Working towards that goal, today I re-made the Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole that was originally from Madella Bathke who won the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest with it in 1978. My mom found the recipe online a few years ago, and it soon became a go-to recipe in our house and was eaten often.
So, after missing this delicious casserole for almost two years, I decided that I must make a vegan version. I made a small casserole, but feel free to double this recipe to feed a crowd. And. yes, I know that using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls for the topping isn’t the most healthy thing, but they’re accidentally vegan and very tasty.
