Tips for Creating the Perfect Casserole

To Create the Perfect Balance

-  Choose a starch such as pasta, potatoes, or rice
-  Choose a meat, vegetable, or both!
-  Choose an ingredient that will bind everything together such as a cream sauce  or an egg mixture

To Prevent a Soggy Casserole

-  Frozen vegetables need to be thawed first
-  Remove any extra moisture from the vegetables
-  Squeeze out extra water from greens, especially spinach

To Prevent a Bland Casserole

-  Top your casserole with shredded cheese, crushed crackers, crumbled bacon, or crushed potato chips
-  It is best to add these toppings towards the end of the cooking time to avoid a soggy texture
-  Broil the casserole after you've added these toppings for a delicious crust

For a Portable Casserole

-  Use a disposable pan, especially if you are taking the meal to a potluck
-  When transporting a cooked casserole, keep it warm by placing towels under and around the pan
-  It is safe to keep a casserole at room temperature for up to 2 hours

To Ensure All the Ingredients are Done at the Same Time

-  Partially cook vegetables that take longer to cook, especially root vegetables
-  This prevents vegetables from being too crunchy or mushy

To Prevent a Mushy Casserole

-  Do not cook pasta all the way
-  Pasta should be very al dente (it is best to cook the pasta for 2-4 minutes less than the package suggests)
