I’m not even going to try and play it cool right now and lead you to believe this post was my intention today. Today’s recipe was supposed to be something sweet and delicious that involves pumpkin, maple, cinnamon, and lots of butter. However, I’m traveling at the moment, and I only realized half way into my trip that while I remembered my lap-top, I failed to bring my external hard drive. Ya know, the one with all of my photos for the post on it. Sooo….sorry. Can we still be friends? I hope so, because I’m about to make you virtual dinner.
I always feel a renewed motivation for dinner time with the change in a season. And now that fall is here, I’m pulling out my slow cooker, and the dutch oven, and all of my stock pots, and re-visiting cozy comfort-food that I haven’t seen since last fall. One thing that I absolutely love, is a good recipe that can be prepped early in the day. There is nothing better than seeing that dinner hour approach and knowing that all you have to do is pull something right out of the fridge and pop it in the oven. Bonus points for having all of the dinner prep dishes already clean as well. So on that note- I want to share 5 awesome casserole style dishes that can all be made earlier in the day. These are all really popular OBB recipes with good reviews, so I hope they’ll become family favorites in your homes, too!
My kids love this one. It just tastes like…home. Tender chicken, homestyle veggies, and a creamy cheesy sauce. Retro cracker crumbs on top are icing on the cake. –> Click Here for the recipe <–
Tuna Noodle Casserole
This ‘aint yo momma’s tuna noodle. (I can’t believe I just wrote that). An updated classic, this dish boasts a creamy homemade sauce, sautéed celery and mushrooms, and a buttery crumb topping. Bright citrus blends perfectly with the seafood flavors. We get tons of emails from readers telling us how much they love this one! –> Click Here for the Recipe <–
Tortellini Spinach Bake with Creamy Lemon Sauce
This is another reader-favorite. I keep boxes of dry tortellini in my pantry so this can come together really quickly with just a few additional ingredients. It works great as either a main dish, or a side dish. –> Click Here for the Recipe <–
Baked Chicken Bacon Alfredo
Older post, and older pictures- but a great recipe! This uses our beloved Guiltless Alfredo Sauce, and combines it with a few other easy ingredients for a one dish meal that pleases both kids and adults. –> Click Here for the Recipe <–
Easy Potato and Bacon Breakfast Casserole
I’ve told you a million times- my favorite thing for dinner, is breakfast. Make this breakfast dish in the morning when you’ve got eggs and bacon on the mind and then pop it in the fridge until dinner time. –> Click Here for the Recipe <–
