12 Easy Recipes for Casseroles That Taste Amazing

Casseroles are totally one of the easiest things you can make for dinner, because everything is made in one pan, making preparation quick and cleanup a breeze. Not only that, but a casserole can be chock full of foods from all the food groups (from the new food pyramid thingy rather than the four groups I grew up learning about). You can have protein, vegetables, grains, dairy, fat, heck even fruit. Plus, what’s more comforting than a good casserole?

Honestly, casseroles have gotten a bad rap. I mean, it’s true that people in the past made some really bad casseroles. Like, REALLY bad. (In fact, you’ll notice some of these are called “Bakes” instead of “Casseroles”, probably because of that negative connotation.) But don’t let that stop you from trying these. We’ve come a long way from those sloppy casseroles of ages past. Just take a look at these and your mouth will be watering despite the unfortunate name of “casserole”!

These 14 Easy Recipes for Casseroles will make dinner a breeze!

Okay, okay. I know this isn’t the healthiest casserole ever. It isn’t even the healthiest unhealthy casserole ever.

11. Chilli Dog Casserole with Cheese Fries


Don’t kill me. Here’s another super unhealthy casserole, but holy moly is it tasty! One of my favourite sinful indulgences is a good order of chilli cheese fries and a chilli dog. (I love the ones from Krystal, but I have to have some Frank’s Red Hot sauce to go on top.) Anyway. This recipe combines the two… chilli cheese fries and chilli dogs… into one AH-MAZING recipe!

If you’ve never had a pierogi, you’re missing out on one of the tastiest things EVER. They’re little dumplings that are filled with mashed potatoes and other ingredients like cheese or onions. This recipe layers frozen pierogis with bacon, cream cheese and cheddar cheese for something akin to a loaded baked potato, and the result is as delicious as you probably expect.
