Make-ahead Casserole Tips

When it comes to making a make-ahead dish, casseroles are at the top of the easiest to make list.  Casseroles make great family breakfasts, dinners, or holiday pot-luck dishes.

Tips for preparing a make-ahead casserole:

  • Most casseroles can be made ahead of time.  Put all the ingredients together and chill in the refrigerator before cooking. Take out 20-30 minutes before putting in the oven.
  • Give your casserole more flavor by topping it with something special before baking.  For example, buttered bread crumbs, shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, or even French fried onions making a great casserole topping.
  • If you are preparing a casserole for a potluck or dinner party, use a disposable foil pan so you can leave any leftovers at the party.
  • When transporting a casserole, insulate the casserole inside kitchen towels.  Wrap it around the casserole to keep warm if you don’t already have an insulated container.  Casseroles are good for 2 hours at room temperature.

    Not a fan of this one. My boyfriend LOVES Velveeta, but it just completely ruined the taste of what could have been a good casserole. The cream of mushroom didn’t really add much to the flavor, either. Next time I’d use 2 cans of cream of chicken, and cheddar cheese.
