There’s no comfort food like a classic casserole and these mouth-watering fall casseroles are the perfect way to celebrate the cooler weather. I love simplifying dinnertime with a large casserole and making enough that I’ll have leftovers the next day. Enjoy the best flavors of fall with these fall casseroles.
I grew up eating casseroles several nights a week. My mom had 5 kids and casseroles were an easy way to get dinner on the table. Because of that, casseroles are serious comfort food for me. I love throwing together one of my favorite casserole recipes and having dinner ready to go.
