John Wayne casseroles have gained popularity over the years, but there is often a sense of mystery surrounding the name and origins of the dish. The recipe for John Wayne Casserole was first published in Cooking with Love from Cara and Her Friends in 1979. The cookbook was compiled by Cara Connery in an effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Cara wrote to celebrities for their favorite recipes for inclusion in the cookbook. The original John Wayne Casserole was a crustless, vegetarian dish that was mainly composed of eggs and cheese.

John Wayne Casserole was further popularized by the University of Mississippi Medical Center cafeteria in Jackson, Mississippi. Much like the famous actor, the Southwestern-flavored casserole was nicknamed "the Duke”. Unlike the original cookbook version, the hospital cafeteria’s recipe evolved to include ground beef and a crust.
