69 Casserole Recipes As Warm And Cozy As Your Favorite Sweater (1)

There’s maybe nothing more comforting than a home-baked casserole. They’re simple to throw together; can be filled with literally ALL your favorite meats, grains, and vegetables; and can easily feed a crowd. We enjoy them from breakfast to dinner (and even dessert!) year-round (maybe a little less often when it’s hot out, but we’ve got some summertime ones here too). Check out our 69 casseroles for ideas—just assemble, sit back, and relaxxxx.

Casseroles can be enjoyed year-round, but there’s really something special about making one in the fall or winter. They’re hands-down the easiest weeknight dinner (on par with one-skillet meals), but can also be labors of love worthy of special occasions. Try our baked eggplant Parm, our chicken and rice casserole, our chicken pot pie noodle bake, or our turkey casserole for hearty, simple dinners. If you’re looking for something a little more involved, try our , our eggplant Parm, or chicken pot pie casserole, or our zucchini lattice lasagna—they’re still super easy, but a few extra steps make them stand out.

Speaking of special occasions, casseroles fill out our holiday menus every year for good reason. They’re great for potlucks, since they’re pretty portable and are easy to reheat. Try one of our many green bean casserole or sweet potato casserole recipes—do like we do, and make them more often than just for Thanksgiving. You can even enjoy casseroles for breakfast. Whether you’ve got a crowd to serve or are just looking to set yourself up for the whole week, we’ve got a great recipe for you. Try our keto breakfast casserole, our cheesy croissant casserole, or our biscuits and gravy bake for ideas.
