Spanish Jambalaya Casserole

With spring officially here, we've reached the two final installments of this series of favorite casserole recipes (with crockery recommendations) from The Awl and The Hairpin. But before you go full fair-weather grill-out, a recipe for jambalaya.

One of my first post-collegiate single-guy attempts at "cooking"—outside of warming a can of Goya black beans in a saucepan—was for a Mardi Gras-themed party in the mid-90s. I'd gone to my first Jazz Fest in 1993 with some friends/co-workers (synonymous in those days for me), and I listened to a lot of Dash Rip Rock and The Radiators. The next year, a creole-themed party emerged as the perfect [...]

An Easy (And Even Easier!) Cassoulet

As we settle into the long, cold, dark days that come with the final slog through winter, we—your pals from The Awl and The Hairpin—will be bringing you some of our favorite casserole recipes (and crockery recommendations). But these won’t be just any old casseroles! No, no, that won't do at all. These are fancy casseroles—or at least, not-gross ones.

Cassoulet is not the most prepossessing dish. To serve a guest a bowl of it is to serve a gloopy brown mess. It's also mostly beans, hardly renowned as addictive. Yet when word got out recently that I’d be making cassoulet, a number of friends suddenly, and [...]

Breakfast Hotdish, Minnesota Style

As we settle into the long, cold, dark days that come with the final slog through winter, we—your pals from The Awl and The Hairpin—will be bringing you some of our favorite casserole recipes (and crockery recommendations).

I'm from Minnesota—the land of Paul Bunyan, Babe the Blue Ox, the Coen brothers, Bob Dylan, a gas station designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the US Hockey Hall of Fame, a boatload of lakes and Prince. This is a place where dinner is often called 'supper' and the casserole is known as a 'hotdish.'

Many a hotdish has been served at my family table many times, with many [...]

Ave and happy Ides of March! If you haven't been too busy being ware today, perhaps you might be interested in making a thematic vegetarian casserole or side dish to celebrate one of the more thrilling days of the calendar? What do you mean you're not thrilled [...]

Be a love and come sit by me so we can have a quiet discussion about how Martha Stewart's recipes are terrible. Shhhhhh, not so loud! Cripes, she might hear you and then we'll all be done for. Death by glue gun and glimpses of Baby [...]

Chicken Mushroom Casserole For The Lazy Snob

As we settle into the long, cold, dark days that come with the final slog through winter, we—your pals from The Awl and The Hairpin—will be bringing you some of our favorite casserole recipes (and crockery recommendations). But these won’t be just any old casseroles! No, no, that won't do at all. These are fancy casseroles—or at least, not-gross ones.

Truth be told, this is a recipe born of laziness.

You ever have those days where you decide upon waking up that you are simply not going to step foot outside your home, barring a house fire or catastrophic flood? I often find that the notion of [...]

I'm not really sure why I woke up one day and decided that I absolutely had to have tater tot casserole, especially because I'd actually never had tater tot casserole before? But such was the state in which I found myself one random Sunday last year. And, as one does in this, our modern age, I hit Google in search of a recipe to try out. Except that oh dear [...]

But these won’t be just any old casseroles! No, no, that won't do at all. These are fancy casseroles—or at least, not-gross ones.

Mama didn’t make casseroles. Because I grew up on (more or less) traditional Korean food, I’m not a native speaker when it comes to American culinary classics. Tamale pie and tuna casserole are ethnic foods to me. I was 19 when I first tasted mac ‘n’ [...]
