Casserole Craze

May 8, 2011

After the fun that was muffin mania, I decided I needed another type of food to focus on.  This time I won’t even attempt to make one per day for a week, as it would get to be a bit much for a two person household.  My latest ambition?  Casseroles.

I’m not much of a casserole eater, and therefore I’m not much of a casserole maker.  My husband, on the other hand, loves all things casserole.  I’d like to get a bit better at making them, and I’m certainly willing to try.  My challenge, then, is to find a casserole that I’ll actually enjoy eating.  Tuna noodle casserole is out of the running immediately, as is anything that calls for cream-of-anything soup.  What’s left?  Lots, as it turns out!  Here are the runners up.

I do realize foods called “pies” are not necessarily casseroles… however, I think pies and casseroles must be first cousins, so I’ll include them in my list.

      I didn’t make it – sorry! I would guess two tablespoons each of flour and butter, then add a tablespoon milk and a cup of cheese. If it looks too thin, add more cheese or flour; if it looks too thick add more milk.
