18 Casserole Recipes {including some that freeze and/or slow cook}

Bake up a casserole and you’ve got family pleasing, comfort food for dinner.  But casseroles are also convenient and easy.  Especially if they can offer the option of freezing for later, baking in the oven or even slow cooking in a crock pot.

I’ve got 18 recipes for you to try.  And I’ve included some handy tips for many of them too.

Not every recipe uses cream soups, but a few do.  If you avoid the canned version, or find that you’re out, here’s a post on using White Sauce (with several variations) as a substitute.

Baked Pasta with Cauliflower and Cheese – A meatless meal that can be frozen.  This one makes a lot, so it’s good to share with a friend or stock your freezer.

Baked Spaghetti – One of the most popular recipes on Eat at Home.

Beef and Black Bean Taco Bake – Easy and it can be frozen.

Black Bean and Corn Chicken Taco Bake – The chicken version of the recipe above.  Can be frozen.

Chicken and Cheesy Rice Casserole

Chicken and Dressing Casserole

Chicken Broccoli Divan – Fix it in the oven or slow cooker.

Chicken Casserole with Corn and Peas – Make an extra for the freezer.

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Shepherd’s Pie

Chicken Tetrazini – Make it in the oven or slow cooker and it can be frozen too.

Cottage Pie – Use ground beef that you’ve already cooked and frozen to make this super quick.

Easy Jambalaya

Ham and Swiss Scalloped Potatoes

Italian Chicken and Rice Casserole

Mandarin Chicken and Rice Bake

Meatballs and Spanish Rice

Hashbrown Casserole – Make this in the slow cooker with ham or smoked sausage, or place sliced smoked sausage on top and bake in the oven.  This one freezes well too.

Chicken Casserole – lightened up! – a bonus 19th recipe



Freezer Cooking – Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Storing Food in the Freezer

I’m gearing up for Virtual Freezer Cooking Day on Saturday.  I’ve made a list of foods I want to cook and shopped my freezer full of pork for some of the meat I’ll need.  I’ve still got to make a grocery list and go shopping.

Some of you are getting ready too and I’m so excited to get to cook with you Saturday!  It would be fun to do it in person, but cooking via Facebook will be a blast too.

Alison, an Eat at Home reader, sent me an email asking a few questions about how to store food in the freezer.  She’s going to be cooking on Saturday to help get ready for a new baby.  I thought I would answer her questions here in a post, since others may have the same questions.
