I love casseroles for a few reasons. First, I absolutely hate doing dishes, so a casserole uses only one cooking dish. Major win. Second, you can always revise a recipe to be healthier for you based on whatever diet your following, or if you’re just maintaining a generally healthy lifestyle. Third, there’s always leftovers for lunch the next day. I’ve found 15 fantastic casserole recipes to make, some for breakfast and others for lunch and dinner, that are creative and super tasty.
Sheppard’s Pie is one of those meals that just fills your stomach and your soul with home cooked warmth. On a rainy day, opt for this healthier option that is filled with colorful sweet potato and lean ground turkey. Yum!

A great recipe for leftover BBQ chicken that doesn’t look like a leftover! I can’t wait to throw this together for supper one night. Make it look oh so colorful with some extra cilantro and chopped red onion, and serve with guacamole and fresh salsa on the side.

A huge apology to those who don’t like Mexican…I mean…I don’t know who doesn’t like Mexican. You’re crazy. Just saying. Anyway, a lot of these recipes on this list are Mexican themed and I’m okay with that! This casserole is great for vegetarians as it is meat free.

What did I tell you? More Mexican! Combine two of your favorite foods to create a beautiful entree that will catch guests by surprise and have everyone begging to take some home with them. Maybe make two casseroles just to be safe.

This meat-lovers version of the enchilada casserole is easy on the carbs and heavy on the protein. It can be serve on it’s own on inside a tortilla if carbs are part of your meals. Don’t forget to squeeze fresh lime on top!

Scalloped Potatoes are often served in the fall or winter for a filling comfort food. Freshen this casserole classic up with some freshly picked dill from the garden (AKA the grocery store).

So much YUM! It has spring written all over it with fresh shrimp and tangy lime notes through the casserole. You can always replace the shrimp with chicken or steak based on who’s eating it and how many people are going to want turf instead of surf.
