Looking for casserole recipes? When it comes to comfort food, nothing beats the satisfying flavors and aromas that you get from casseroles. But the best part of a casserole is how easy it is to make.

To make a casserole, all you have to do is combine ingredients in a casserole (or baking dish) and then place it in the oven to cook. Add a green salad and crusty bread, and dinner is served!  

Here are some of our favorite casserole recipes, from meat to chicken, seafood to vegetable. Something for everyone!

The casserole to the left is the “Pecan-Crusted Sweet Potato” Casserole. Anyone who likes dessert first will love this dish. See recipe for Pecan-Crusted Sweet Potato.

Beef ‘n Biscuit Casserole

Outstanding! A creamy, cheesy chili mixture baked between biscuit layers. A great supper to rustle up midweek, when time is short and the kids are starved. The rare leftovers are excellent, too.

Does anyone know how to do a

Does anyone know how to do a casserole recipe that uses a canned cream soup, when you are on a gluten-free regimen? There are a lot of old favorite recipes I will have to throw out unless I can find a suitable substitute.

I usually can replace cream

I usually can replace cream soups with a mixture of sour cream and chicken or beef stock and seasonings -based on what the recipe is for - but the sour cream does a great job and even my gluten eating friends prefer the tangyness :) hope that helps!

Make your own: Ingredients: 2

Make your own:
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup gluten-free flour
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms

Melt butter in skillet, add mushrooms and cook until soft. Add flour and butter and whisk together. Slowly add stock while stirring. Bring to a simmer and cook a few minutes until thickened. Add milk, salt and pepper and stir until combined and thick.
