quick and easy casseroles

Why do we all love quick and easy casseroles…I think because it’s comfort food that brings us back to our childhood! From dinner casseroles, to side dishes, to desserts they are just a feel good food that can be adjusted to your liking adding more of this and a little less of that.

Easy Main Dish Casserole Recipes

Seriously, if you have leftover ham our asparagus casserole recipe rocks. Or make a turkey casserole instead of endless sandwiches. Adds protein and flavor while avoiding wasted food which I just hate to do.

Just about any of these can be adjusted to work with the leftovers you may have. Use your imagination, swap out ingredients here and there to use what you have. We do this a lot when we have burgers the night before, and make Hamburger and Rice Casserole the next day with it.

Crockpot Casseroles

Crockpot pizza casserole is one of my kids’ favorite dishes because, well it is pizza in a casserole. Who couldn’t resist that??

You can even make a deconstructed anything really. Love McDonalds? Try our big mac casserole with all of the same ingredients except the bun, so it’s keto friendly.

You can make side dishes this way too. If you want to make two dishes for a complete meal, our Carrot Casserole goes with just about any other main!
