It’s funny, but when you search for “great summer recipes” online, there seem to be two consistent categories of results. One, the recipes that make use of as many fresh, seasonal summer veggies as possible… and two, the recipes designed for stuffing as much barbecue, hot dogs, and cheeseburgers into your mouth as possible! I love both these options, and I also love savory summer casseroles.
I don’t know about you, but in the summer, I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. When the sun is shining, the weather is hot, and the pool is calling my name, I want to be outdoors. That’s why summer casseroles are such a staple for me! Letting the oven do all the work? Yes, please!
