My most favorite was my Moms "Potato, eggs and cheese". It was simply a creamy cheese sauce (cheddar), hard boiled cubed eggs, and diced potatoes. Mixed together and baked, we could not get enough of it! We never knew that this was a budget dish in the 50's! I have always liked the original version, but you can mix in anything you like! Ham cubes, veggies, or any leftovers go well with this. Just wonderful comfort food. We always especially like the crispy browned top part! YUM
Women, and other smart people, probably like them best, as they provide a lot of tasty food in a handy form. You can often use leftovers, and small pieces of vegetables that might not usually be eaten, to make a lot of food to feed a group.
My husband loves anything with all the ingredients tossed in together. I am the opposite and prefer to have each item stand alone. I tolerate casseroles since he likes them so very much and they are simple to make, freeze and reheat.
Casseroles are a great way to use left-overs. Also when my kids were at home , I could always get in some extra veggies in a casserole!
Casseroles are great one pot dishes, but with just two of us they are always too big. My wife refuses to eat leftovers and I can only reheat them for lunch for so long. !
Casseroles are great especially if you have a large group people to feed. There is less dishes to use so less to clean. Many of them also contain most if not all necessary nutrition for one meal.
I personally don't feel a casserole is appropriate for entertaining anyone but very close friends and family. Casseroles, to me, are comfort food. They definitely have a place at my table!
Most casseroles are loaded with fat and high in sodium. If those two things could be cut down, I'd eat casseroles more.
I work a full time job and often take casserole leftovers to reheat at work. I am the envy of all those who go out and spend too much money for bad food; or those who are eating cold sandwiches. Most offices have a microwave these days.
My husband and I like casseroles; I am not so sure about serving one to guests, unless it is something very special.
Could just be my wife's cooking, even though she does pretty good at most everything else, but yes. . . I'd rather eat cardboard.
