Casseroles -- for taste or money?

October 5th, 2010 at 12:29 am

Many of us grew up on casseroles because they were a cheap way to stretch a meal whether it was with pasta or rice or bread crumbs. For some it brings back good memories of eating with family.

So, as I am in a quest for some new casserole recipes, I am wondering, why do we still like them?

Is it to save money -- I can stretch a chicken pretty far in a couple of casseroles.

Is it because it tastes good -- I sure plan on keeping the recipes we liked and forgetting those we didn't.

Is it for ease -- making them ahead of time and keeping them in the fridge or freezer sure makes it easy to feed those you love and adore.

Or is it a memory we like to relive?

So, what is our love affair with casseroles about?

    What I like? Everything in a single dish! My casserole repertoire differs from my mom's--more Indian, more Tex-Mex, less bland Midwestern church-basement.
    But I do like them; it's comfort food, for the budget and for the psyche.
