Barley Casserole - The Southern Lady Cooks

 

Barley Casserole is a traditional side dish at our house during the holidays. My Grandmother from Mississippi made this Barley Casserole whenever she entertained friends and family in her home. We have carried on her tradition and serve it during the holidays every year.  My family loves this unique dish!

Barley Casserole Ingredients Needed

Butter

Quick cooking barley

White or Yellow Onion

Slivered almonds

Dehydrated onion soup, we use Liptons

Chicken broth

Canned Mushroom slices (reserve liquid)

Can of Water chestnuts

This dish is different but wonderful and honestly it wouldn’t be our holiday without it. It’s one of the only dishes we serve at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. We all agree it is wonderful with mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. Something about the taste of this dish goes great with cranberry sauce. Full printable recipe below in recipe card. 

“I made this with pearled barley and it was GREAT! Every loved it and agreed that it was definitely a keeper. Even better as leftovers.” – Patti

“I added browned ground beef to make it a main dish, and left out the mushrooms and water chestnuts because some of the kiddos don’t like them. We loved it, and will be adding it to our meal rotation!” – Terra
