Since we’ve become something of a Foodie Nation (remember David Kamp’s The United States of Arugula?), I’ve heard vigorous debate over the virtues of the down-home casserole. Call them what you want – covered dish, hot dish, casserole – but these make-ahead meals are a must for fall when schedules get tighter and I welcome the oven’s warmth.
The best thing about casseroles: you can tailor them to your own taste. Make them out of top-choice gourmet ingredients or whatever’s on hand, use passed-down family recipes or get creative and concoct your own new favorite. Use a canned soup base or start with a béchamel sauce with fresh mushrooms. The sky’s really the limit.
My family loves casseroles with ham. Enjoy these tried-and-true Ham Casserole meals and Happy Fall!
