Pasta- Try different kinds of pasta. Spaghetti, Penne or a shell-shaped pasta would be fun!
Reduce Some Calories?- Don't even ask how many calories are in this dish. Who cares?!?! But, if you want to trim some of the guilt, you can sub Greek Yogurt for the Sour Cream. And you can use Turkey Bacon instead of regular Bacon. You can also use Low Fat Cheese.
Fun with Cheese- We used Cheddar Cheese and it was great. But feel free to mix it up a bit. Colby Jack, mix in some swiss, or pepperjack to add some kick!
Add Some Kick- Speaking of adding spice, try mixing in half a cup of buffalo sauce into the mixture if you like a little heat!
Chicken- We used boneless skinless chicken breasts. But using Chicken Thighs may add some moisture to this dish if desired. We also love to make casseroles with Rotisserie Chicken. In fact it's a great idea to buy a couple Rotisserie Chickens from the store, break them down and keep them in the freezer. Another great idea is to use Leftover Turkey for this recipe. A great option for leftovers after the holidays!
Alternative Topping- Try using Panko Bread Crumbs instead of the crackers.
Fun Additions- Try adding peas for some color. Or one small can of Green Chiles or Jalapenos for some heat. Make sure you drain the can before adding.
Serve with Some Bread- These would go great with our Quick and Easy Drop Biscuits!
