New Mexico Style Chili Chicken Casserole

"One of our new favorite weeknight meals when I need something fast or easy. I've made it three times in the past two months. I don't do all the layering, just roll the chicken in the wraps and cover with the sauce and cheese. I've even topped it with crushed tortilla chips and it was good that way as well! Keeper, keeper, keeper!"


Baked Potato Salad Casserole

"Wish I could give this 10 stars! I've made this 3 times in the past 6 weeks. It is always wiped-out in minutes! Then a friend gave us new potatoes from their garden and oh, my Goodness! Heaven in a bowl when I used them for this salad! I use some crumbled bacon, because I didn't have the chicken or ham."


Zucchini or Yellow Squash Casserole

"This recipe is excellent! We altered it by using (2) 14 oz cans of diced tomatoes with garlic and onions. We found by using two cans instead of one it turned out more moist. We definitely recommend this recipe. It has become one of our favorites!"


Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole

"Great dish! None left! Will definitely be doing this again! I've been looking for something similar to stuffed manicotti and this is pretty much it, but not as expensive."


Broccoli Casserole

"Made this last night for dinner and wow was it ever good! This is the best broccoli casserole I've ever had. Will be making this many more times."

"Awesome recipe. Easy to assemble the night before and bake in the morning. I used Granny Smith's because that's all I had on hand and it was still terrific. By the way, the smell was incredible while it was baking."


Chili dog Casserole

"Tastes just like a chili cheese dog! Easier to eat, too! I'd add more onions next time and cheese. Quick and easy!"


Delicious Blue Cheese Broccoli Casserole

"How do you improve upon perfection? You can't! All I can do is offer a tip to getting there easier. For the Ritz cracker crumbs -- 1 and 1/2 cups of crumbs is exactly one tube of Ritz crackers. Just squeeze the package with your hands and voila -- instant crumbs. Excellent dish!"

Tuna Casserole

-Charlotte J

Beef, Macaroni and Tomato Casserole

-cathi H.

Mexican-Style Green Chile Chicken Casserole

Hash Browns Casserole Just Like Cracker Barrel

Pork Chop Casserole

"Wonderful! I added some garlic powder and celery salt to the flour. Such a delicious dish! Also, my husband doesn't care for pork, but really enjoyed this!"


Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

"I love this recipe but I use uncooked chicken breast tenders instead of pre-cooking my chicken, which is so much easier. I bake as directed and it comes out perfectly delicious."


Baked French Toast Casserole With Maple Syrup

"I use this recipe everytime I have extra company staying over. I usually add a tsp of almond extract along with the vanilla. Gives it that extra something special. It's simply decadent and always a hit."


King Ranch Chicken Casserole

"Loved it. I didn't have Rotel, so I used salsa. I was low on shredded cheese, so melted a small block of Velveeta in with the soups and saved what grated cheese I had to sprinkle on top. Great family dish!"

-Mary W.

Delicious Zucchini Casserole

"This is an awesome side dish - especially when you are getting sick of the green beans and plain flavored veggies. My husband loves this and he hates veggies. One suggestion- do NOT precook the zucchini - baking it gets soft. Super easy and tasty."
