What is a casserole?
A casserole is any dish prepared in a casserole dish and then baked in the oven. That’s it! Almost anything can be a casserole if you make it this way! Casserole recipes also tend to be made with loves of yummy mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese too.
Even though there are lots of cheese involved, you can make a delicious healthy dinner casserole like a skinny spinach lasagna, skinny chicken casserole, broccoli casserole or a casserole made with good quality protein such as ground beef with lots of veggies (bell peppers, avocado, onions, zucchini and so on).
What do I use to bake them in?
Every kitchen needs at least one casserole dish! You’ll see down below that casseroles can be baked in many different types of dishes. You can use a ceramic baking dish, glass baking dish, enameled cast iron baking dish, or aluminum baking dish.
Keep in mind that if you want to freeze the casseroles, some materials are better than others as the change in temperature can cause thermal shock in some dishes such as ceramic.
Are these freezer friendly?
Most healthy casserole recipes are freezer-friendly. I recommend using an aluminum baking dish if you want to freeze the entire dish.
They’re lightweight and easy to lift in and out of the freezer. They are also great for freezing as they aren’t affected by thermal shock if you want to bake directly from frozen. They are also great as a meal prep.
