Casseroles: A Comforting Weeknight Hero

Let’s talk about casseroles! Warm and comforting, tuna casserole makes the perfect weeknight dinner. Named after the large deep, pan they’re cooked in, these versatile one-dish wonders became popular in the twentieth century in the United States. Around that time, the idea of the casserole as a one-dish meal really took off, gaining even wider popularity as lightweight metal and glass cookware replaced heavy earthenware containers in the 1950’s. Today, the mighty casserole is an unsung weeknight dinner hero, combining protein, vegetables, starch, and a crunchy or cheesy topping for a complete meal. The combinations of ingredients are endless and cleanup is a breeze—it just doesn’t get better than that. Try working a casserole into your weeknight dinner prep with one of these four crowd-pleasing recipes.
