73 Easy Casserole Recipes That We Keep Coming Back To

Casserole recipes are one of the many reasons we look forward to cooler weather. First of all, they're delicious: creamy, savory, and luscious, often with a crackly-crispy top. And even better, casseroles are a great way to cut down on dishes to wash (at a time when you're really tired of doing dishes), because they're served in the same dish you cook them in. Easy casseroles were made for busy weeknights when you want a lot of flavor without a lot of fuss.

It's no wonder that casseroles often become family favorites. Think lasagna, mac and cheese, pasta bakes, etc. They're the ultimate crowd pleasers, whether you're setting out a game-day spread or planning your weeknight family dinners.

Ahead, we've rounded up our favorites: 73 of the best casserole recipes we've got on Epicurious. Among them, you'll find breakfast casseroles (of both the sweet and savory variety), hearty mains for dinner, and lots of flavorful sides.


Everyone loves baked pasta, and there is no better time to indulge than winter. The carbs fill you up, and the cheesy-oven-baked-goodness warms you up. This version from Spicy Southern Kitchen has a flavorful twist: barbecue sauce, green onions, and cilantro.

This is a fantastic, easy, one-dish meal. It’s warm, flavorful, and filling. I like using rosemary-studded bread for extra flavor, but if you don’t have any, you could easily substitute another thick, chewy bread.


40 Healthy Casserole Recipes That Are Perfect for Meal Prep

Healthy casserole recipes are lifesavers when you've got a million and one things on your mind and cooking elaborate meals isn't one of them. Stressful times call for big batches of simple dishes that are easy to throw together, and don't take long to make or reheat. With one of these in the fridge (or freezer), a satisfying breakfast, lunch, or dinner is always just minutes away.

In general, meals that feature a flavorful mix of proteins, carbs, fats, and veggies or fruits are the most likely to fill you up, Jessica Jones, M.S., R.D., certified diabetes educator and cofounder of Food Heaven, previously told SELF. And casseroles are a particularly convenient way to combine a variety of flavorful ingredients from the different food groups into one delicious, hearty dish. Think a breakfast casserole with eggs, sausage, and broccoli, or a shepherd's pie filled with veggies and lentils for dinner. Whatever your taste or dietary preferences, it's not hard to find a satiating, deep-dish casserole that you'll enjoy.

These 40 healthy casserole recipes won't take long to make or leave you feeling hungry. Do yourself a favor and set a day aside to prepare and freeze a couple of them for way later. That way, you can simply grab and reheat a serving (or pan) as needed. With any luck, these casseroles will keep you off of kitchen duty for a few weeks!

A note about the word healthy here: We know that healthy is a complicated concept. Not only can it mean different things to different people, it’s a word that’s pretty loaded (and sometimes fraught), thanks to the diet industry’s influence on the way we think about food. At SELF, when we talk about food being healthy, we’re primarily talking about foods that are nutritious, filling, and satisfying. But it also depends on your preferences, your culture, what’s accessible to you, and so much more. We selected these recipes with those basic criteria in mind, while also trying to appeal to a wide variety of nutritional needs and taste buds.

  • 2 (5 ounce) cans tuna, drained
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente drain.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix noodles, onion, 1 cup cheese, peas, tuna, soup and mushrooms. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish, and top with potato chip crumbs and remaining 1 cup cheese.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is bubbly.


Suggestions for California Breakfast Casserole

  • Layering the right way will ensure the breakfast casserole bakes evenly and sets up perfectly. Start with a layer of breakfast sausage patties, and top that with tomatoes and avocados, and then a thick layer of egg and hash browns all topped off with melted cheddar cheese.
  • We like to smother our slices of breakfast casserole with sour cream and salsa or diced tomatoes.
  • If you are weirded out by the avocado being cooked– don’t! It tastes great! However, if you must leave it out of the casserole and just want to use it as a garnish, that is a tasty option too.
  • Using a cup of milk in the recipe makes the egg and hash brown mixture more light and fluffy. But we have made it without and it has turned out fine.
  • If your casserole is still runny after baking, this is most commonly caused by now thawing out the hash browns before cooking.If you make the mix the night before you can definitely use frozen hash browns, they will thaw out in the fridge overnight. But if you’re preparing it the day of, make sure to thaw your hash browns before assembling the casserole.
