4 Easy, Comforting Casserole Recipes for Anytime of the Day — Oven or No Oven!
Unbelievably easy to prepare and absolutely delicious, casseroles are your scrumptiously savoury saviour that will perk up any ingredients you have, when you want to cook in bulk, or simply want to finish your leftovers! The beauty of a casserole recipe is that it can easily camouflage as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sounds good, right? That’s because it really is! Even though casseroles are made for the oven with its unique height and shape, we haven’t forgotten about you non-oven owners. We have cooked up a few warm, wonderful one-pot wonders here at the Meyer Kitchen but here are some of our favorites that get us through the week—we’ve included one bonus recipe that is just as delicious on the stove top!
Bagel Breakfast Casserole
They say you should eat like a king for breakfast, and this Bagel Breakfast Casserole is the royalty of breakfast meals (but to be honest, we love a good meal no matter what time of the day!). The guys at Food Network Kitchen have deconstructed a traditional bagel sandwich and made it even better with gooey, melty cheese — and who can say no to that? We definitely can’t.
The best thing is, for those who love a good sleep in, this breakfast casserole can be made the night before. Let it sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before baking it again. This recipe is also great for hosting during the day, and we’re sure this will impress your friends and family. This Bagel Breakfast Casserole is really the breakfast of champions!
An oldie but a goodie. This no-frills Baked Spaghetti recipe from AllRecipes has sparked up our love for pasta again and is truly a crowd pleaser. It can be cooked ahead of time or on the day so it’s perfect for when you need a quick and easy meal for a family lunch. If you’ve got leftovers, you can freeze it and save it for later in the week. This versatile recipe can be changed up to use chicken (instead of ground beef) or go without meat so it’s vegetarian-friendly! Set aside some time to prep, place it in the oven, and voilà!
Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole
Sometimes all you want to do after a day’s work is veg out on the couch with a comforting, no-fuss dinner, and that’s where Delish’s chicken and rice casserole comes to save the day. It’s wholesome and nutritious, and a recipe we love, especially in the cooler months.
All you need is 15 minutes to prep the ingredients, leave it in the oven to cook, and the rest of the time is for you to wind down and relax. This dump ‘n bake recipe uses one pan and five main ingredients including uncooked rice, onion, broth, cream of mushroom soup, and chicken thighs to cook up a delicious meal that we always go back for seconds.
Stove Top Mediterranean Chicken Casserole
Not all casseroles require an oven, just like its name suggests, this Mediterranean casserole recipe can be cooked up on the stove top. With a rich tomato base, the chicken simmers together with the lightness of the herbs and spices, and topped with capers, olives, and feta cheese, it makes this casserole recipe a winner for all seasons. It also pairs deliciously with mash potato or with a side of toast, alternatively, for a fuller meal, pasta will complete this casserole dish with a bang!
