25 Delicious Casserole Recipes (A Roundup)

Casserole textThe cooler weather is here, and we’re all thinking about bundling up and making some nice casseroles (or hot dishes as they say in the Minnesota area! – can I just tell you I think that is the funniest thing ever?)

Anyway, I’ve compiled a roundup of some really yummy casserole dishes that you should give a try this winter…even the tuna noodle looks great, and I’m definitely not a tuna noodle kind of girl!

Let me know what you think and add your own in the comments if you want to share!

Happy Hot Dish! (Hahahah I told you I love that term!)

Breakfast Casseroles

Breakfast Egg & Bacon Casserole Freezer Meal – Eggs, bacon, cheese, and even spinach combined for a make ahead hearty breakfast your family will love.

Oatmeal Breakfast Casserole – This one would be great for large families.  Nutritious and a perfect start to a school day!


Baked Potato Casserole – Picture a loaded baked potato in a casserole.  Delicious!

Best Ever Sweet Potato Casserole – You’ll never look at sweet potatoes the same after you’ve had them in a casserole with apples.

Twice Baked Potato Casserole – All the cheesy goodness of a twice baked potato in a casserole.

Easy and Delicious Cheesy Holiday Hashbrown Casserole – Not just for holidays.  This casserole would make a tasty side dish to just about any meat you serve.



Pork Sausage Casserole – Ingredients for this one include long grain wild rice, mushrooms, and sausage.  If you don’t like sausage, another meat would work well as a substitution.

Ham Casserole –  This recipe is a smart way to turn leftover ham into a second meal.


Not Yo Mama’s Tuna Noodle Casserole – Classic tuna casserole gets a makeover.  Your family will actually want to eat this one!

Shrimp and Grits Casserole – This is a less spicy version of traditional shrimp and grits, and there are some great tips to cooking grits in there too if you’re unfamiliar with them.


Hamburger Pie –   If you forgot to prep dinner before work, this is a quick and easy hearty meal  You can also change a few things up to make it a little more homemade.  Try adding some corn or peas to it to make a complete one pot meal!

Hashbrown Hamburger Casserole with Veggies and Cheese – Hashbrowns make this casserole different.  It also uses 2 cups of mixed vegetables, so you can be sure that there is a lot of nutrition in this as well.

Beefy Sour Cream Noodle Bake –  Sour cream, cream cheese, and cheddar transform ground beef and egg noodles into something fabulous.

Sloppy Joe Casserole Recipe – Awesome alternative for those who love sloppy joes but hate the mess they make when on a bun.  Now they are officially fork-worthy.

Chili Cheese Tater Tot Casserole – No casserole roundup would be complete without a tater tot recipe!  Jamie at Love Bakes Good Cakes said it best…”This Chili Cheese Tater Tot Casserole is like eating, well, chili cheese fries – but in a casserole form.”


Fiesta Ranch Chicken Pasta Bake –  Chicken and pasta with a cool ranch kick make this an awesome weeknight dinner option.

Hot Chicken Salad – It’s chicken salad taken to the next level by baking it with cheese and potato chips!  Great for a lunch dish served hot or at room temperature.

Curried Chicken and Rice Casserole – Comfort food turned healthy.  If your family isn’t fond of curry you can also substitute oregano or basil for a more Italian flavor.

Creamy Chicken Broccoli Pasta –  Chicken, Broccoli, and cheese?  Yes please.  This simple recipe will probably become a staple in your menu.

Mexican Inspired

Turkey Enchilada Bake – Three layers of turkey enchilada goodness made even better when it’s topped with lime and avocado.  This recipe is beautiful and packed with nutritional value.

Cheesy Burrito Casserole – Burrito ingredients in a casserole.

The Ultimate Wet Burrito – If you love Mexican food you will love this!  Complete with everything you’d ever want in an enchilada.  It’s a spicy one but you can tone it down by using mild salsa and omitting the jalapeno peppers.

Italian Inspired

Easy Baked Penne – This simple to make baking dish full of deliciousness will feed quite a few.

Pizza Spaghetti – Two favorite foods combined.  How can you go wrong?  Customize to your family by mixing in some of your favorite pizza toppings – mushrooms, peppers, onions…the sky’s the limit!
