One dish and done.
Casseroles are a Southern staple, but that doesn’t mean they’re the easiest recipes to whip up on busy weeknights. With long chill times, multiple layers, and potential hours in the oven, casseroles are sometimes better made a day ahead. Skillet dinners are extremely easy to make, but they don’t always serve up the comfort of a casserole. Enter: Skillet casseroles. These skillet casserole recipes are quick, easy, and oh-so-cozy. Skillet breakfast casseroles like quiche and frittatas are extremely versatile, as you can serve them at breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. But you can make more traditional dinner casseroles, like chicken pot pie and lasagna, in your skillet, too. Kid-friendly favorites like mac and cheese and Frito pie will become staples in your house. We use our cast-iron skillets to make recipes from breakfast to dessert, so it’s a no-brainer that we’d create skillet casserole recipes.
