While there is no strict definition of what officially makes a dish a “casserole,” it is generally understood to be a combination of ingredients baked in the oven in the type of dish for which it is named (“casserole” is actually the French word for pan or saucepan). Regardless of the specifics, everyone will agree that casseroles can be an easy and delicious way to get a meal on the table when you don’t have much time to dedicate to cooking; whether you make a casserole ahead of time and have it in the freezer, ready to be baked on a busy night, or you choose a recipe that takes advantage of leftovers or premade ingredients, casseroles can be weeknight time savers. And, with the arrival of back-to-school and cooler temperatures, fall is a great time to get baking.

Some casseroles are especially convenient because they are essentially one-dish meals. By combining all the ingredients needed to make a well-rounded meal into a casserole dish, you reduce both the amount of time needed to prepare the meal and the number of dirty dishes created. Less prep time and less cleanup means more time to focus on things besides cooking.

And, casseroles can often be made in advance and stored in the freezer. In general, any casserole can be frozen before it’s baked; those that call for a crumb topping should be prepared and frozen without the topping (it should be added immediately before baking the casserole). Freezing a casserole can alter the texture of certain ingredients like rice or pasta so it’s important to make sure that your casserole is cool before you freeze it; this helps eliminate excess water, which can damage the texture of starchy ingredients.

Try any—or all!—of these eight delicious fall casseroles. They’re reliable and really, really delicious.

Whether you’re planning brunch or are in search of a starchy side dish for dinner, this super easy casserole made with frozen shredded hash browns is a must-try. It calls for eight strips of cooked, crumbled bacon, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute cooked sausage or ham.

This is truly one of the easiest casseroles you can make; after combining lots of flavorful Tex-Mex ingredients like tortilla chips, green chili peppers, and sour cream, top the casserole with shredded cheese and bake until bubbly and delicious.

30 Fall Casseroles That Will Give You All The Cozy Feelings

When the temperatures drop, let these dishes of bubbling goodness warm you up.

Put those stuffing leftovers to good use!

Chili & cornbread in every bite!

It's all about the upper crust.

Brussels sprouts just became your new favorite vegetable.

This noodle bake is made with noodles, seasoned Brussels sprouts, crispy shallots, our BFF bacon, and of course, it's all held together with cheese (what else?).


Casseroles You Can Proudly Serve to Guests

This take on crowd-pleasing baked ziti (which actually calls for penne) is plenty cheesy, thanks to a mixture of Fontina, blue cheese, Pecorino Romano and Parmesan. But instead of a tomato-based sauce, the dish relies on two unexpected ingredients: roasted butternut squash and sage. They lend depth you don't usually find with acidic (read tomato-y) sauces.

It's rare to find classic Asian ingredients in a casserole, yet they come together just as beautifully in the oven as they do in a more traditional stove-top method of cooking. This flavorful dish starts with a layer of cooked brown rice. Next comes a tasty combination of sautéed Swiss chard, onion and ginger, mixed with coconut milk, soy sauce and a dash of sesame oil. On top of that, you crack eggs and bake until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny when they come out of the oven, the bright yellow will look stunning against the greens. You can make this in one large casserole dish or in individual ramekins for a more elegant presentation.


Comforting Casserole Recipes

Warm, hearty and comforting: There’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned casserole. Whether you’re craving a classic like tuna noodle or looking for a recipe with a twist (like mini spinach and artichoke chicken casseroles), these recipes are sure to satisfy.

Arizona doesn’t necessarily have fall weather, but that doesn’t stop me from busting out my sweaters and bringing out my warm Autumn recipes. Over the years I’ve noticed that cooking in the fall changes just a bit from cooking in the summer.

  • Some of my favorite produce appears in the fall such as apples, pumpkins, mushroom, kale, squash, pears, carrots and beets.
  • Outdoor grilling ends for the season and oven roasting begins.
  • Crock pots are also utilized slowly filling the house with delicious aromas making my mouth water in anticipation.
  • Soup! Not only are they easy to whip up, but they’re filling and warm you right up on a chilly autumn day.

All of the recipes above have been made, tasted and tested for my site. I love knowing I’m providing recipes for your family that I love myself. Along with the recipes you’ll find tips and tricks such as make ahead information, variations, cooking tips and storage info. Happy Cooking!


Comforting Casseroles for Crisp Autumn Nights

A four-cheese mac 'n' cheese sounds delicious enough—but add cubes of roasted butternut squash and woodsy sage, and you've entered the realm of outrageously good dinner. While the squash cooks, you can grate the cheeses: a perfect combination of mild and slightly sweet fontina, sharp and salty blue cheese, tangy Pecorino Romano and almost fruity Parmesan.

With all the spaghetti squash harvested in early fall, now's the time to make this healthy reinvention of a classic. The recipe is innovative and wildly delicious, swapping in the delicious squash for the pasta, and a creamy cashew sauce for the cheese. It also has you add cremini mushrooms for a bit more heft (in addition to the tuna), and crushed pork rinds on top for a salty, crispy crust.

This simple quinoa bake is packed with vibrant fall produce yet delivers a warm, comfort-food vibe. You cook quinoa in vegetable broth to give the seeds rich flavor, and the dish gets a subtly sweet, earthy taste from roasted butternut squash and mushrooms. Dark green kale brings even more nutrition and a burst of color.

Too often, meatless lasagna includes a jumble of lumpy, bland-tasting vegetables. Not this bright dish, though. The wonder ingredient is pumpkin—which tastes rich and melds seamlessly with the pasta and cheese. You just mix canned pumpkin puree with flavorings that are both familiar (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove) and unexpected (sautéed garlic) and then, spread the mixture into a dish with the noodles, ricotta and mozzarella cheese.

When supermarket display bins are overflowing with copper-fleshed sweet potatoes, turn to this easy, make-ahead recipe. It combines the versatile tuber (which adds a gorgeous hue) with sautéed chicken breasts seasoned with sage and thyme, onion and bacon, plus a creamy white sauce. (And if you can find sweet potatoes that are actually labeled "yams," use them they have the darker skin and richer-colored flesh that are perfect for this meal.)

These potpies, made with a hearty mix of mushrooms, barley and white beans, are just as delicious as the traditional chicken version—but won't leave guests in a food coma. You top each one with phyllo dough it's a quicker, flakier and lighter alternative to the usual butter-heavy dough. And while most mushrooms are available year-round, many are at their peak in fall and winter.

Lazy cooks, rejoice: Baking risotto in the oven instead of cooking it on the stovetop is totally doable, as this simple recipe, from Sunday Casseroles, shows. It ends up more tender and less al dente, but no less delicious. With roasted butternut squash, grated Parmigiano cheese and fresh sage, it's a wonderful one-dish meal you can make without the need for constant stirring and monitoring.

We love shaved Brussels sprouts salad as much as anyone, but on a chilly night, a salad has nothing on a casserole. Enter this brown-rice bake, which incorporates cooked onion and Brussels sprouts with white wine, chicken stock, apples and thyme, as well as a smattering of cheddar and slivered almonds. It has the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

This take on crowd-pleasing baked ziti (which actually calls for penne) is plenty cheesy, thanks to a mixture of Fontina, blue cheese, Pecorino Romano and Parmesan. But instead of a tomato-based sauce, the dish relies on two surprise ingredients: roasted butternut squash and sage. They lend depth you don't usually find with acidic (read tomato-y) sauces.
