HELP! Oven bit the dust...

My ailing oven is today toast. New one comes tuesday. However I still need to cook for this family of 5 until then.
Today I planned on Cordon Bleu Casserole, I'm not feeling too well and didn't want to make the real deal. Well now I can't bake it, and the chicken really should get used today, as well as the ham slices. I really still want to eat Cordon bleu.... or something close. Any ideas?

Do you have a gas grill?

Do you have a toaster oven or can borrow one for the weekend? I was without my oven for about 3 weeks this year and relied heavily on my toaster oven. I also used my crock-pot quite a bit. Perhaps you can use your crock-pot to prepare your casserole.

Wow you guys are fast!!!
Yes I have a crock pot and gas grill. I'm not sure how I would make it in the crock but I suppose indirect heat on the grill would have the same effect correct Andy?
It's under 6 inches of snow though.

First get a shovel...

Yes, indirect heat is the answer. Light one side and place the casserole dish on the other side on a cookie sheet. Bake as you would in your oven. After all, the gas grill is the same basic configuration as an oven. If your grill has a thermometer, try to adjust the heat to the right one for the casserole. It will fluctuate some but casseroles are forgiving.

I've got 4 burners on it, do you think lighting 1 on each side and putting the dish in between would cook more evenly than lighting 2 on one side, or does it not really matter?

One on each side with the dish in the middle. You've already got it all figured out!

Thanks!
Maybe DH is right, I should sit and crank the 'ol brain a bit before I decide I don't know anything. :)

You had the answers. All I did was agree with you. Sounds like DH was right.
