We don’t know about you, but the last few months have flown right by. We’re in the middle of the holiday season, which means our schedule is packed and the weather is cold. Good thing we have a few recipes that save on time and warm us up from the inside out! Who doesn’t love a hearty casserole during these cold months? We love that these are easy to throw together and pop in the oven. With one less thing to worry about, we can enjoy a few well-earned moments of peace before the craziness of the holidays picks up again. Go ahead and check out a few of our favorite casserole recipes in the list below!
With a ‘dump and bake’ casserole, you get to stir everything together right in the casserole dish and still end up with a hot, bubbly, comforting bake. It’s hard to beat. And this particular one – with creamy alfredo sauce, tender penne, and hearty chicken – feels impossible to top in convenience and flavor. It’s absurdly easy to make, but so utterly tasty and satisfying that it just feels like an added bonus that it takes no effort at all. Get our recipe here!
You hear a lot about “pork chops and applesauce.” But I’m going to go out on a limb and say that we should be hearing a whole lot more about pork chops and potatoes. Well, pork chops and potatoes that are baked up in a creamy herb-scented sauce and topped with crispy breadcrumbs and cheese. Because that’s just what this is. It’s a casserole that’s pretty darn hard to beat. Get our recipe here!
The whole point of a casserole is that it’s a whole meal in one, right? One casserole, where everything bakes together in under an hour, and then that’s it, you’re done! While we love a traditional meatloaf, we thought we would cut a few corners and make a very classic meal but in an untraditional way. Cheesy mashed potato and meatloaf casserole! Get our recipe here!
Not only are we totally hooked on this dish because of its deliciousness, but we also can’t get over how easy it is to make…and you know we love a recipe that lets us actually enjoy eating it with our family instead of one where we have to cook and serve while others eat (so that the food isn’t cold by the time everyone comes together). This is packed with protein and veggies, has tons of flavor and is a complete meal that means you don’t have to worry about any side dishes. This is an addictively yummy taste of Texas and you won’t want to miss it! Get our recipe here!
When it comes to comfort food, two iconic dishes that often come to mind are corn pudding and macaroni and cheese. They’re both comforting in their own right, creamy, and even similar in color… so why not go ahead and marry them in one singularly delicious casserole? The combination might sound a little odd at first, but we promise that it really is a harmonious union of the tastiest variety. Get our recipe here!
