Casserole Recipes are perfect for weeknight dinners, potlucks or parties. Here is a collection of our very best casserole recipes – all of them are hearty, easy to make, and absolutely delicious!
WHY ARE CASSEROLES SO GREAT?
Casseroles are fantastic for dinner because everything you need is in just one pan. The entire meal is baked at once! Most casseroles are made with some type of protein, vegetables and something to help bind everything together (usually sauce and/or cheese). Casseroles are very easy to modify to fit personal preferences – just leave out the ingredients you don’t like and add the ones you do!
How to reheat casseroles?
Unless you have a big family, you may end up having leftovers since most casseroles are baked in a 9X13 pan. Most casseroles reheat quite nicely and the leftovers make great lunches for the rest of the week! You can reheat one serving at a time in the microwave or in an air fryer. If you have a lot of casserole left in the dish and you want to serve it again for a second time, you can add a little water and milk to the pan and then cover with foil. Reheat in an oven for about 15-20 minutes at 350° or until warmed all the way through.

CAN YOU FREEZE CASSEROLES?
Most casseroles freeze beautifully. The exceptions are casseroles that are made with eggs or a significant amount of dairy (milk, sour cream, cream cheese, etc).
As long as a casserole does not have any raw protein in it, you can freeze the casserole before baking. Once the casserole is assembled, double layer with foil and then freeze for up to 3-4 months. When you are ready to bake, let the casserole thaw in the refrigerator for about 24-36 hours and then bake according to the original instructions.
