Make-Ahead “Ham & Cheese” Breakfast Casserole

This is one of thekitchn.com’s most popular recipes ever, published several years ago for a breakfast bake with bread, pancetta, Gruyere, and eggs. It’s rich, eggy, and unbelievably, incredibly delicious.

And for an added appeal: You throw everything in the dish the night before, allow the bread to soak up the egg-and-milk mixture overnight, and bake it in the morning. But while the make-ahead aspect of this dish is very convenient, you don’t have to make it ahead. You can also throw it together and bake it immediately.

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.

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.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

This chicken  casserole in a cheesy sauce can be ready in no time and you will love the taste. The ingredients meld together perfectly to give it a great flavor. Comfort food at its best!

This recipe was originally titled Chicken Noodle Casserole and calls for egg noodles. But it can be made using any pasta, however. Penne, cavatappi, rigatoni or any of the tubular, spiral or ridged pastas work best with a sauce as the ridges or spirals will hold onto the sauce better allowing you to enjoy it with each bite. Chef’s choice!

Cauliflower & Sausage Casserole

Vegetables too often get short shrift in casseroles. Not so here. In this dish, cauliflower is the star. And it is delicious.

Instead of making a dish with pasta or rice, this recipe uses tender yet firm bites of cauliflower, and tosses them with tomato sauce and just a bit of sausage for flavor and body. The result is a tangy, rich dish that would satisfy anyone. You can happily serve this as a main dish or as a side.
