10 Vintage Casserole Recipes Grandma Won’t Tell You
When I think of delicious food, I always think about those delicious home-cooked meals my Grandmother makes. She has a special talent for taking the simplest ingredients and making something uniquely delicious. For a lot of her dinnertime staples she doesn’t even use a recipe because she’s had so much practice making them. It is a talent that I have apparently not inherited…whenever I attempt to go “off book” as they say, the results are usually not good.
I don’t know about you, but I think Grandmothers get a kick out of cultivating an air of mystery in regards to their special recipes. Whenever I’ve asked for one of her old-fashioned recipes, my Grandma just looks at me incredulously and gives measurements like “a little of this and a little of that” and finishes off with “and that’s all there is to it!” Even when she’s given me recipes that have been written down, the results just aren’t the same. While diligently decoding her handwriting, following each step to the letter, the casseroles I make never taste quite the same.
Just in case you never got a hold of your Grandmother’s recipes, here are 10 recipes to satisfy your craving for an old-fashioned recipe. For those of us not blessed with the talent of guessing measurements, these easy casserole recipes will help you recreate some of your favorite Grandma-approved recipes.
