Big-batch cooking is a lifesaver during the hectic days of back-to-school season. Casseroles are a great way to make your meals for the week ahead of time!
1. Cheesy Brown Rice, Swiss Chard & Chicken Bake
A tasty “tried and true” fall casserole featuring savoury mushrooms, Swiss chard, brown rice and lean chicken. Bake in your favourite casserole dish or a deep dish pie plate.
2. Broccoli & Chicken Casserole
Try this inexpensive and fresh version of a chicken & broccoli casserole. No need for processed soups or sauces! Use any combination of in-season, fresh vegetables equaling 4-5 cups.
3. Savoury Asparagus & Chicken Bread Pudding
A healthy remake of a savoury bread pudding set with eggs, also known as "strata." It is a popular brunch option that can be made with leftover chicken. If you are pressed for time, buy a rotisserie-cooked chicken at the supermarket. Boost the fibre and nutrition using a hearty, dense whole grain bread. Make it ahead and pop it in the oven for a great brunch, lunch or even dinner dish.

Something for the chili lovers! There are many variations of this "fix it and forget it" casserole. This version has been updated with lean ground chicken, sliced potatoes, salsa and Mexican spices.
5. Roasted Red Pepper & Chicken Lasagna
One bite of this amazing lasagna and you’ll feel like you’re at a gourmet Italian restaurant. Basil, rosemary, thyme, and balsamic vinegar all work together to boost the mouthwatering flavours of this vegetable-packed dish.
6. Creamy Cabbage, Chicken & Egg Noodle Casserole
A perfect autumn dish for when the nights are just starting to have a chill in the air, this comforting casserole uses cabbage, poppy seeds, and Dijon mustard to add a lightly tangy flavour to this dish. Torn rye bread goes perfectly as a topping for this recipe.
7. Mac and Chicken Burger Casserole
This simple casserole uses Emmenthal and Romano, both strong cheeses, to heighten the flavourful impact of this delicious dish.
