Some people wonder why we run so many casserole recipes on this website? The reality is, however, that Amish Cooks really rely on casseroles. They are easy to assemble, feed large groups of people, and the amounts can be adjusted according to how many people you’re feeding. Plus, casseroles travel so easily. You can put it in a casserole dish, bake it, cover it, stick it in a box, and it can bounce along on a rough buggy ride without really messing with the dish's appearance any.
