Casserole Recipes

A collection of favorite casserole recipes from Deep South Dish.

What Southerner doesn't have an arsenal of casserole recipes in their recipe box? We bring them to potlucks, dinner on the grounds, church socials, to friends who are struggling with an illness and to those who are grieving. Here's a great collection of my personal recipes to choose from, all from Deep South Dish. We've got you covered for all of these occasions, and more!

I often bake my casseroles in my Temptations bakers, or sometimes simply aluminum containers, depending on the event, but these carriers {affil link} are how I transport them. They keep them hot and they never fail to attract a lot of attention too!



This breakfast casserole has become a favorite! Made from scratch with eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy, you can't beat this one for homemade comfort, but a few shortcuts make it even easier if you're running short on time too!

Who doesn't love a hearty old-fashioned chicken pot pie and this one has beat out quite a few family recipes! Mine is made with a thick and creamy, buttery roux, and filled with chunks of fresh chicken, potatoes, carrots, peas and herbs, and encased, in a flaky top and bottom double crust.

A Tex-Mex favorite, everybody loves the cream soup version of this casserole dish, but if you want to bump this up to out of this world good, this homemade-from-scratch version of King Ranch Casserole is the ticket. Made using a highly seasoned shredded chicken and a buttery homemade roux-based cream sauce, seasoned with a medley of veggies and peppers, and layered in with cheese and corn tortillas - it's a total yum y'all!
