We love easy dinner prep and one-pan clean-ups!
It’s that time of year again – the temperatures are dropping, the leaves are falling, and the school year is in full swing, which means you don’t always have time to prepare a big meal at the end of the day. That’s why we love casseroles. They are easy to throw together, store in the fridge, and then pop in the oven when you’re ready. Everyone loves an easy dinner! Check out our list of autumn casseroles that incorporate the flavors of the season.
Chili Cornbread Casserole
One of the many reasons we love making this casserole is because, while our cornbread normally crumbles and falls apart when we dip it in our chili, cooking it on top of the chili means we get the perfect ratio of cornbread to chili in every bite, without having to worry about crumbles! Our versatile chili cornbread casserole is perfect for weeknight dinners, family get-togethers, and next day leftovers – if it doesn’t get polished off once we put it on the table!

Rustic Veggie Casserole
It’s no secret that we love rustic fall recipes, and this vegetable bake really hits the spot for autumn weeknight dinners. Tomatoes, eggplant, bell pepper, and red onions are brightened with plenty of fresh thyme and topped with cheese and then we pop it in the oven. It’s loaded with flavor and surprisingly hearty – perfect as either a side dish or a pasta topping. Get the recipe here!
Southern Squash Casserole
Squash isn’t everyone’s favorite food, but we think this cheesy and creamy casserole is a great way to win over some squash skeptics. This is a wonderful side dish to a meal and a great potluck contribution. A heaping scoop of this piping hot from the oven is sure to satisfy a hungry crew. Grab some yellow squash at your grocery store or local farmer’s market and dive right into this rich and savory side dish. Every season is the right season for delicious comfort food, and our squash casserole really hits the mark. Get the recipe here!
Autumn Breakfast Casserole
Sausage, kale, onions and sweet potatoes mix with fluffy eggs, garlic and just a hint of nutmeg to make this dish a sure-fire hit. All of the warm, earthy flavors and colors combine to make the perfect start to any fall day. The best part is, this dish is healthy! With potassium-packed sweet potatoes and fiber-rich kale, one serving of this autumn breakfast casserole will give you the healthy energy you need to conquer the day. Get the recipe here!
Creamy Pork Chop Potato Casserole
You hear a lot about “pork chops and applesauce.” But I’m going to go out on a limb and say that we should be hearing a whole lot more about pork chops and potatoes. Well, pork chops and potatoes that are baked up in a creamy herb-scented sauce and topped with crispy breadcrumbs and cheese. Because that’s just what this is. It’s a casserole that’s pretty darn hard to beat. Get the recipe here!
Sweet Potatoe Casserole
Here’s another dish that’s great for family get-togethers that will have people clamoring for the recipe. A mix between savory and sweet, this double-duty casserole can be served as a side dish and also satisfies a sweet tooth. Also, if you feel like simplifying things, go ahead and use canned sweet potatoes/yams; it saves time and tastes just as good. After trying this, you’ll be racking your brains for more ways to use those delicious sweet potatoes! Get the recipe here!
