15 Fall Casserole Recipes So You Can Enjoy Your Favorite Comfort Food All Season Long
When we think of fall, we think of comfort food, and by comfort food, we mean anything baked, and preferably covered in cheese — so we're big fans of fall casserole recipes. With plenty of great seasonal vegetables and temperatures low enough for us to start pre-heating our ovens, it's no surprise that autumn is prime casserole season. After all, who doesn't love eating fall comfort foods?
But the greatest thing about casseroles may just be that they're so convenient. Easy to pop out of the freezer and into the oven, they are one of the best make-ahead meals that always tastes delicious. There's no need to resort to frozen dinners when you can mix some veggies with cheese and a couple extras for amazing results.
Casseroles may be one of the most underrated food options for autumn, but we stand by them as one of the greatest. These 15 recipes make amazingly warm, decadent, comforting meals on any autumn night, and you don't need a special occasion to enjoy them. Start preheating the oven, and try something new in the kitchen. Whether you're in the mood for pumpkin, butternut squash, or anything covered in cheese and baked to perfection, you can't go wrong with these casseroles.
