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.


1. Clean Eating Turkey and Sweet Potato Sheppard’s Pie

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!

2. BBQ Chicken Quinoa Casserole

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.

3. Roasted Veggie Enchilada Casserole

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.

15. Cilantro Lime Baked Shrimp

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.
