24 Life-Changing Casseroles

Casseroles have changed my life! I will let you in on a secret. I really do love to cook, but I do not love to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day!

I become really cranky if I have to cook all day, so when I am making a casserole, I know that I won’t have to cook breakfast or dinner for the next couple days!

Million Dollar Spaghetti

This Million Dollar Spaghetti Casserole is super easy to put together and has a center layer of creamy, gooey cheese. A favorite way to serve spaghetti, people just can’t get enough of it! Get Recipe Here

Gonna Want Seconds

Growing up, I wasn’t a “leftover” fan. I wanted to eat something different for breakfast and especially dinner.

But now that I have kids, I am tired and do not want to make something different for dinner.

Why would I?? I mean I think that I am a great cook and baker, why would you want to eat anything else?

Seriously, when hubs and I sit down for dinner, he always says, “You would never get this in a restaurant!”

First of all, he is smart, this feeds my ego (no pun intended) and I accept the challenge and keep on cooking!!

So, let’s talk about casseroles. They are comforting, serve large portions and large crowds, and everyone is always excited when you gift a casserole.

They are perfect for small or large gatherings. Perfect for a brunch, a shower or a funeral. They don’t have to take a lot of work, but they sure do pay off.

The recipient is comforted and full after a serving and has more meals to reheat. They are perfect for the elderly after surgery.

A casserole is a wonderful gift for a new Mom. I received tons of casseroles and can still remember who made them.

I was so appreciative that my family and I were fed through the loving gesture of casseroles.
