Can this be made a day ahead? I want to make this for Thanksgiving but would like to do this earlier to make my day less stressful

This was a much better version of the old stand by. Be sure to cook the onions so they're somewhat soft.

If you're worried about calories, use fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheddar cheese

I can't eat mushrooms - I always substitute another cream of celery, usually.

I wondered about the calories too. Sounds good in spite of the calories

Looks like this would be a great make-ahead casserole, just pop in the oven 1/2 hour before serving.

Sounds great but my goodness two cups of cheese and one cup of sour cream! Wonder how many calories are in a serving :) I'm sure its tasty however.
