Mushroom Casserole (Zhulien)

This hearty mushroom casserole, also known as zhulien, is extremely popular among people of Russian extraction. As in many Russian dishes, sour cream is a central ingredient. It is cheesy, creamy, earthy, and delicious as an appetizer or side dish, and can even serve as a decadent main course.
