The main dish casserole is usually a one-pot meal―an easy and convenient way to prepare a family meal. Casseroles came to popularity in the 1950s when casserole dishes were first available to home cooks.
Casseroles are often made with a binder―usually a thickened sauce or condensed soup―to hold the ingredients together. While a topping isn’t essential, it can add a nice crunchy texture to a dish. Shredded cheese, toasted nuts, French fried onions, buttered bread crumbs, or cracker crumbs are a few popular topping choices.
