King Ranch Casserole

King Ranch Casserole is just like any other good Southern casserole (you know — a creamy, dreamy, oh-so-delicious hot mess), but with its own unique Texas flair. It’s similar to a Tex Mex lasagna: layers of toasted flour tortillas are smothered in a cumin- and chili powder-spiked cream sauce, along with heaps of grated cheese. To say it is hearty is an understatement — this dish was meant to warm souls and mend heartaches.

Pizza Spaghetti Casserole

We preferred turkey pepperoni, so you don’t get a greasy appearance. Freeze the unbaked casserole up to one month. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator; let stand 30 minutes at room temperature, and bake as directed.

Cajun Shrimp Casserole

This hearty seafood casserole is filled with shrimp, cheese and rice and gets its Cajun flair from the addition of okra, bell peppers, and cayenne pepper. It’s a great choice for a special occasion meal. If you’re not a fan of okra, you can leave it out of this dish.

Crockpot Lasagna Soup

What better way to cook a soup, than in the crockpot. This one pot meal will soon be in your winter menu rotation!

Prefer vegetarian? It’s easy to change out the meat. The kids love this recipe and it’s fun to switch up the different fillings to make new and different kinds of lasagnas.

Slow-Cooked Brisket and Onions

This old-fashioned pot roast, cooked quietly in the slow cooker all day with just a handful of ingredients and a mess of caramelized onions, makes a rich broth and meat that melts in your mouth. Sunday dinner, weeknight supper — whenever you eat it, this is a classic dish both convenient and comforting.

Brisket Is Even Better Made Ahead – Make brisket a day ahead, let it chill overnight, scrape away the hardened fat with a spoon, then reheat gently in a covered dish in the oven. So convenient for potluck suppers and dinner parties, not to mention a few evenings of weeknight suppers.

Slow-Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken

This is a classic “dump it and forget it” dish: just rub the chicken with seasoning, add some lemon juice and chicken broth, and set the timer. The result is the most tender chicken you’ve ever tasted with just the right amount of lemon-garlic flavor in every bite. The texture and tenderness of this chicken is unbeatable. After basting for hours at low heat, the meat is literally falling off the bone. It is juicy, aromatic, and deeply flavored with lemon, garlic, thyme, and a bit of rosemary.
