The holiday season is coming and everything gets busy. We have several casseroles that can be made a day ahead or can be made and frozen. So after a full day of shopping, decorating, wrapping etc. warm up one of these casseroles and enjoy a home made meal.
Spaghetti Casserole has been a family favorite for several years. Prepare a simple salad and you have a wonderful meal.
Chicken and Dumpling Casserole, comfort food at it's best. Dish up a bowl and enjoy a warm meal on a chilly evening.
Chicken Enchiladas this is a recipe from Casserole Gal Rachel and she makes it every time Casserole Gal Rhonda visits, because it is one of her favorite meals. Something different from the turkey and ham meals we prepare for the holidays.
Lighter Lasagna is a great casserole to prepare during the holidays. It is a meal you don't have to fill guilty about.
Alfredo Chicken Pasta Casserole gives you a few vegetables and a great taste.
Don't forget about dessert! Finish your meal with a lucious Lemon Blueberry Poke Cake!
We hope you enjoy our casseroles and have a glorious holiday season!

Don't these look scumptous Baked Meatball Sandwiches from Casserole Gal Kristen
I have been seeing a lot of black bean brownie recipes around the internet and I finally gave them a try! The flavor of these are really good, although the texture was still very bean-like. I think the next time I make these Black Bean Brownies, I will add chopped pecans and chocolate chips. I did find that these were best warmed up for a few seconds in the microwave and topped with chocolate ice cream and chocolate chips.
15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup melted butter
Put everything in food processor and process until smooth. Line an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Pour brownie batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean.
