Sunday Casseroles

When food writer Betty Rosbottom discovered that many cookbook indexes go straight from “carrots” to “caviar,” she went to work creating Sunday Casseroles, published by Chronicle Books. She defines casseroles as gratins, baked stews, pot pies, pilafs and stratas that are all-in-one dishes — including your favourite lasagna. They’re easy to assemble, endlessly versatile and can often be made ahead. Plus, many can be served as a main all on its own — a saviour on hectic weeknights. Rosbottom updated old favourites (like the chicken pot pie that follows) and invented new recipes that take advantage of the diversity of fresh ingredients at supermarkets — not the case when casseroles first became popular in the mid-20th century. The recipes that made us want to reach for our cookware are included here.
