Turkey Parm Casserole

Turkey Parm Casserole
Turkey is a wonderful treat to have at the holidays, but if you have leftovers then sometimes it can be a real head scratcher to come up with new ways to serve it. With this turkey parmesan casserole it couldn’t be easier to make a hearty meal with things you probably already have on hand. And, if you’re someone who prefers turkey to chicken then this is just the recipe for you.

BBQ Ranch Chicken Casserole

There’s nothing I don’t love about this recipe. BBQ, ranch, chicken, pasta, bacon, and cheese, along with some spices and veggies. The end result? A delicious meal that comes together in under 30 minutes! I especially love making this casserole when I have some leftover chicken. Just shred or dice the leftover chicken and toss it in!

Chicken Florentine Casserole


This recipe has what we might call the ‘four c’s’ of an ideal casserole – it’s creamy, it’s cheesy, it’s comforting, and it’s crowd-pleasing. I’m not going to claim that anything is perfect, but this one comes pretty close and it packs in enough spinach to make popeye proud. In other words, it’s well-rounded comfort food and it’s incredibly tasty to boot.

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole


Chicken Spaghetti is the quintessential retro comfort food casserole, because what’s not to love about creamy, cheesy pasta tucked into a baking dish? It’s universally appreciated, so much so that it has been around for decades and it will surely stick around for decades more – that’s just how good it is! While it usually gets its creaminess from the old casserole standby, cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup, our version has a creamy sauce that’s made from scratch so you can get that comfort and deliciousness in a more homemade fashion. It’s the same casserole you remember and love, just with no cans needed.
