I’ve always loved a good casserole. There is something about a meal in one, often held together with a cheesy or savory sauce, that just warms you up and puts a smile on your face the moment you walk through the door and get hit by the aroma of bubbly goodness coming out of the oven.
Today, in the midst of a persistent winter where I’m at, I’m sharing some home run casserole recipes from myself and my friends. You’re sure to find a few new family favorites on this list!
Simple ingredients join together for a flavorful ending!
A hearty casserole that’ll warm you up and stick to your bones!
Here is a link to the Crock Pot Casserole baker that Cris uses. I don’t own one but if I were to buy one, I think I’d get this pretty design…
There is something about poppy seeds and chicken that just take the meal up a notch and make you feel like you’re sitting in a Southern tea room!
This is pretty much our family’s signature casserole. If someone in your family passes away, if you get sick, have a baby, break your legs (it happens), or suffer any other general malaise that renders itself to being a casserole opportunity, this is what you’ll get from us.
Make it with ham instead of chicken or leave the meat out altogether and double up on veggies, it’s easily customizable and always reliably good.
It is also the casserole that turned my husband’s “I don’t like casseroles” attitude around and is still his favorite after nearly two decades of being shackled to me.
I really feel the urgent need to make this casserole A.S.A.P….
I love all of the flavor combinations in this classic family friendly casserole.
When you find yourself longing for garden fresh tomatoes in the middle of winter, you can usually find some good enough to make this dish and the dish will take care of the rest 🙂
From Granny Jordan’s well worn recipe files, this quickly became a surprise hit with families around the world.
This is one of the most brilliant things I’ve ever seen done with spaghetti!
This is one of those dishes that makes you want to lean through the screen with a fork…
Wish List for Casserole Lovers!
The covered aluminum 9×13 pan is one of my essential pans. I absolutely love using this to travel with casseroles and cakes and it is perfect for storing in the refrigerator. With the budget friendly price, this is one dish everyone should have and you will find it becomes one of your most used!
On the right is the kind of baking dish we all dream about. Coated in a thick glaze that makes it easy to clean (even with baked on cheese and grease from meat), the lid makes life so much nicer when a recipe says “cover and bake” and also helps retain warmth and moisture once you remove it from the oven on those nights hubby or one of the kids are running later than expected!
