Casserole Recipe Redux

Casserole Recipe Redux

There’s nothing quite like a good cooking challenge once in a while, and taking on the casserole certainly fit the bill this week. It’s something we all have a love-hate relationship with; done well, it can be a convenient one-dish meal that doubles as lunch the next day. Done badly, it’s the stuff of childhood nightmares; one’s heart can only go out to kids (and adults) whose sole thought at that point in time is probably something along the lines of "What did we do to deserve casserole night? Mother of God!"

First, a disclaimer, though: We did not set out to make the casserole sexy. That would be tantamount to making something like say, a Prius, sexy — just not happening. Delicious, yes. Sexy, not happening in this lifetime. So there, full disclosure.

That being said, though, what came out of everyone’s ovens this week looked absolutely fantastic and definitely set our collective stomachs rumbling and chops salivating. Take, for instance, Nathan Cyphert's Tuna Noodle Casserole, simple, delicious, and easy on the wallet. And, also not to be missed is Culinary Content Network member Lyndsy Hassett's Southern Shepherd's Pie Recipe, an upside down version of the traditional English dish that also gets a Southern twist thanks to cornbread. But the one that takes the cake is Arthur Bovino's winning recipe for King Ranch Chicken — its well-balanced, robust flavor makes you think "definitely not diet food," but it is indeed, a slimmed-down version all the same. Just, whatever you do, don't call it a casserole, because that's not how they roll down in Texas.

All of the recipes featured here can be made at home for about $32 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices. While this may seem a little high, it's because these recipes are meant to feed an army of eight to 10 hungry people. That works out to about $3 to $4 per person or less — so if you're looking for an economical way to feed a crowd, the casserole still reigns supreme.

Cheesy Broccoli Potato Casserole The folks at Recipe ReDux have chosen another fun theme for this month. This is their 42nd Recipe ReDux and we have been challenged to grab a cookbook and add our own spin to a recipe on page 42 (or 142 or 242…you get the idea). I only have one cook book with me that is not digitized, a collection of recipes assembled by the friends of Compass Regional Hospice (formerly Hospice of Queen Anne’s). These type of cookbooks are invaluable for preserving regional recipes and my choice, a cheesy broccoli potato casserole is one of those you’ll frequently see at a buffet or holiday meal. It’s easy to assemble for 2 or 20 and if desired, all the dairy components can be substituted for vegan analogues. If you’re making this for a potluck or holiday meal, you’ll probably want to double the recipe and make the mashed potatoes fresh. However, if you prefer use leftover mashed potatoes and broccoli to make a simple to prepare side dish for a family meal. (The leftover casserole was formed into patties for the next day’s lunch…that’s a lot of mileage out of a few potatoes!) Adjust the amount of milk and butter used for the casserole if using mashed potatoes made with those ingredients. To make a vegan friendly dish, omit the egg and use your favorite non-dairy milk, vegan spreads and cheeses. Preparation

Butter a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Cut the bread into 2-inch chunks and set aside.

In a large bowl, gently beat the eggs. Add the half-and-half, granulated sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Add the bread, berries and cream cheese, and mix gently. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

Cover the baking dish with foil and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours so the bread chunks can absorb the custard.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Uncover the baking dish and bake for about 45 minutes, until the middle is set and all the custard is absorbed. If the top gets too brown before the casserole is done, cover it with foil. Dust with powdered sugar, if using, and serve immediately.

Next, mix the eggs, evaporated milk, and seasonings together until smooth. Put your veggies and cheese into a greased casserole dish, then pour on the egg mixture and top with cheese. Bake it until it’s done!

Expert Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Breakfast Casserole Every Time

  • Brown your sausage. While the sausage will cook in the sausage egg casserole and some varieties are even already cooked, the browning process gives you sausage casserole so much more flavor. Plus, it allows you to drain the fat away so your sausage hashbrown breakfast casserole is not as greasy.
  • Thaw those hashed browns first. They’re much easier to stir together and won’t let out too much liquid this way.
  • Use evaporated milk. It will make this egg bake recipe so much more indulgent and impressive!

How to Cook Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casserole is cooked in the oven in a casserole dish. The sausage for your casserole needs to be cooked on the stove top first so you can drain the fat. Then you can combine the rest of the ingredients in this sausage and egg casserole.

Can I substitute fresh potatoes for frozen hash browns?

Yes, you can, though it requires more work for you. That said, if you don’t mind doing so, you’ll have to freshly grate your potatoes and then remove the starch by soaking them and rinsing. This takes a bit of time which is why the frozen hash browns are helpful.

How long can breakfast casserole be refrigerated before cooking?

You can make your breakfast casserole ahead thee night before, assembling everything so that all you have to do is pop it in the oven in the morning. I don’t recommend preparing your overnight breakfast casserole ready more than 24 hours before though.

How Long to Bake Breakfast Casserole

At 350F, this breakfast bake casserole will need to cook for 55 to 65 minutes.

How do you know when breakfast casserole is done?

Just stick a knife into the center of your egg casserole recipe after 55 minutes of baking. If it comes out clean, your baked egg casserole is ready!

How do you keep egg casserole from falling?

The temperature of 350F is low enough to keep it from falling. Slow and low is the best way to cook this type of breakfast casserole?

Why is my breakfast casserole runny?

If you didn’t let the hash browns thaw first, they can make your casserole runny. Following this breakfast egg casserole recipe will ensure you have a breakfast casserole that has the right texture.

What goes well with Breakfast Casserole

I always serve orange juice, coffee, toast, and breakfast pastries when I make my hashbrown breakfast casserole recipe. When we have a bigger gathering, I’ll add sides of bacon, sliced avocado, fresh fruit, and pancakes.

How to Store Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casserole leftovers must go in the fridge. Cover them well!

How long can you keep hash brown casserole in the fridge?

In your fridge, you can keep your properly-stowed breakfast casserole for up to 5 days. If you can’t finish it up, put it in the freezer.

Can You Freeze Breakfast Casserole?

Yes, when wrapped well, it will keep for up to 2 months in your freezer.

Can you freeze egg casseroles?

Yes, you can. If you make enough for a crowd but have lots of leftovers, just wrap it well and freeze it. It will keep for about 2 months.

How to Reheat Breakfast Casserole?

Let it thaw out overnight in your fridge. The next day, bake it at 350 for 20 minutes or until heated through.

How do you reheat egg casserole without overcooking?

Much of it depends how much egg casserole is left. If it’s still pretty full, putting it in a preheated oven at 350F for about 20 minutes should be perfect.

Sweet Potato-Squash Casserole

What is the one enduring Thanksgiving dish that will always have a place on your table? Maybe there’s more than just one that lives on through the years. Our family has several dishes that make an appearance each year on Turkey day, but I’d be willing to change out most of them for something different, except one….my mom’s sweet potato soufflé. Sweet, creamy & buttery, covered in marshmallow goodness, I love it and so does everybody else (except my grandpa who swears he hates sweet potatoes, yet devours a slice of sweet potato pie every year because he thinks it’s pumpkin!). With this month’s Recipe Redux theme being Vintage Side Dishes, I knew what I had to do.

Because my mom’s sweet potato soufflé is perfection just the way it is, I decided to go in a slightly different direction to make this something of my own. First, I have a time-saving/life-changing tip. Use canned sweet potato and butternut squash for this recipe because it tastes just as good and takes no time at all! This sweet potato-squash casserole is much lighter than the soufflé since its sans marshmallows and uses less butter. The squash and sweet potato lend their own natural sweetness, so the small amount of honey and brown sugar is all you need.

[recipe title=”Sweet Potato-Squash Casserole” servings=𔄦″]
1-15 oz. can sweet potato puree
1-15 oz. can butternut squash puree
1/3 cup coconut cream
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt

Pecan Topping
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Blend all ingredients, except those for the pecan topping, together in a stand mixer bowl on medium speed.
3. Pour mixture into a 9࡫ dish and bake for 20 minutes.
4. While the casserole is baking, melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat, add brown sugar, stirring until moistened.
5. Add pecans to butter and coat well. Cook on low heat for 2 minutes.
6. Top casserole with coated pecans and bake for 10 minutes longer.
