What exactly are casseroles?

Casseroles are defined as a hot meal typically baked inside an oven safe dish. These meals have multiple layers of ingredients that cook and melt together while baking and are usually on the savory side.

They can be thrown together at a moments notice or can be frozen and saved for another quick weeknight dinner.

What are casseroles made of?

Casseroles normally consist of 5 main ingredients:

  • A protein (ground meat, chicken, or tuna)
  • A starch (potatoes, rice, or noodles)
  • A vegetable (broccoli, cauliflower, peas, carrots, etc.)
  • A sauce (Alfredo, spaghetti sauce, etc.)
  • Cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, monterey jack, etc.)

What can I serve with casseroles?

I would recommend serving a side salad or a skillet of these Lemon and Olive Oil Green Beans. You can round out the meal with a basket full of flavored bread such as garlic or Italian.

How do you freeze casseroles?

Freezing a casserole is an easy task. Assemble the dish as stated in the recipe, minus the cooking part. I like to use disposable aluminum pans for this. Once assembled, wrap the pan in saran wrap a few times. Then wrap in aluminum foil. With a Sharpie marker, write baking instructions on the top.

Once frozen, how do you defrost and make a casserole?

Place the frozen aluminum pan in the refrigerator over night, still covered. The day of cooking, remove the saran wrap and aluminum foil. Follow the baking instructions on the aluminum foil. Consume the casserole within 3 to 4 days of defrosting.
