Hello everyone! It’s Danielle from AllFreeCasseroleRecipes.com. I feel like every family has a list of classic casserole recipes that they make on a regular basis. The summer is the perfect time to make them because you just have to put the ingredients into a casserole dish and put it in the oven. I’m just getting so tired of eating the same few recipes over and over. Just because it’s a classic recipe doesn’t mean it’s completely untouchable. A little change never hurt anyone. I feel the same about holiday meals. My family always seem to include the same broccoli cheese casserole. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good broccoli and cheese casserole. It’s just that sometimes I wish someone in my family would put a new spin on the recipe.
One thing I love about AllFreeCasseroleRecipes.com is that there are so many different casserole recipes available on one site. Better yet, there are multiple recipes for some casserole dishes, including classic casserole recipes like green bean casserole. Take a look at some of the great classic casseroles that have been given a face-lift.
Classic Anytime Casserole Recipes
This is a lighter, healthier version of an American classic that uses ingredients such as homemade broth instead of a condensed cream soup. It works well with both turkey and chicken so you can eat it more than just once a year.
I’ll admit that I’m not a huge fan of meatloaf but there’s no possible way I’d pass this recipe up. The dish is both sweet and salty. Classic meatloaf recipes have NOTHING on this one.
The name practically says it all. This recipe redux swaps some ingredients for more healthy alternatives (like whole wheat penne for egg noodles) but still maintains the essence of the classic casserole recipe.
Classic Holiday Casserole Recipes
(Even though they’re classic holiday casseroles, note that they DO make for excellent “anytime” side dish casseroles.)
Mashed potatoes are a staple at most holiday meals. This recipe, however, allows you to prepare the dish the night before (or even DAYS before) your holiday dinner so that you aren’t as stressed out the day of. Plus, as a casserole, the mashed potatoes crisp around the edges.
Again, AllFreeCasseroleRecipes.com just wants to make your life easier. This recipe takes one of the most classic casserole recipes and updates it for the life of a busy cook. Best of all, this version forgoes the ever-popular cream of mushroom soup for a homemade broth.
