  • You can freeze them.
  • They’re easy to take to someone.
  • The possibilities for flavor combinations are endless!

What is a casserole?

A casserole, also known as hot dish, bake, or covered dish can be anything served hot in a single baking dish. It can be a main one-dish meal, or a side dish to accompany a protein entrée.

Some classic components are meat, vegetables, cheese, canned soup, and crunchy or breaded toppings.
