These Casserole Recipes are comfort food meals that your whole family will love.
I love a good casserole recipe. Casseroles are an easy way to make a lot of food to feed the whole family. Plus, they make excellent leftovers to eat throughout the week. Having plenty of leftovers in the fridge makes me feel like I am a step ahead of the game.
The Best Easy Casserole Recipes:
From classic casseroles I grew up eating to Tex-Mex favorites, these casserole recipes will make preparing dinner easy.
The filling of this casserole is similar to a chicken pot pie, but instead of a pastry crust, it is topped with easy homemade cheddar and green onion biscuits.
These baked chimichangas are filled with shredded chicken, sauteed onions, rice, refried beans and cheese, and they are topped with my poblano cream sauce.
A healthier version of lasagna that replaces the pasta with thinly sliced zucchini.
Slow cooked shredded beef gets combined with sauteed peppers and zucchini, rice, and cheese and is topped with corn queso.
Pasta gets a flavor boost by being cooked in tomato bisque. It's an easy cooking hack that turns store-bought soup into a rich creamy pasta sauce.
One of my favorite meals from childhood, Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole is made with tender chicken breasts, mushrooms, and broccoli with a creamy sauce topped with ritz cracker crumbs, cheddar cheese, and bacon.
This Butternut Squash Lasagna is made with layers of pureed butternut squash, spinach and ricotta, mozzarella, and butternut squash alfredo sauce. It’s a delicious meal filled with fall flavors.
Some of these casserole recipes are meals that I grew up eating. The Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli casserole was my favorite when I was a kid, and now I make it for myself. I love the creamy cheesy sauce, chunks of broccoli, tender chicken, and crispy cracker crumbs on top.
Many of the recipes in this collection stem from my love of Tex-Mex cuisine. The Chicken Mexican Lasagna recipe came from a reader suggestion who was inspired by my poblano cream sauce recipe. It has layers of chicken soaked in poblano cream sauce, beans, cheese, corn, and tortillas.
These are the meals that I love to cook on a Sunday, it’s a nice way to end the week, and the extra food in the fridge makes me feel ready for the week ahead.
