There’s just nothing better or more comforting than a homemade dinner! It has become a fun tradition among my group of friends to organize a meal delivery schedule any time there’s a new baby on the scene. After all, the last thing that a sleep-deprived new mom wants to worry about is grocery shopping or prepping food. Since one-dish meals are the perfect solution for a quick and easy dinner, I decided to compile a list of the Best Casseroles to Take to a Friend!

The Best Casseroles to Take to a Friend

When I decided to pull together these recipes as a resource for myself (and YOU!), I reached out to some of my favorite food blogger friends. I wanted them to give me their favorite casseroles so that I was sure to get the BEST of the BEST. And you know what? Within a matter of days I had a running list of 60 different options. Holy cow! Clearly I’m not the only one who loves a good covered dish! With such a great variety of casseroles to choose from, you can spoil your friends and family with the gift of a hearty and comforting home-cooked meal.
