Three bubbling, cheesy casseroles perfect for our Oval Baking Dish.
While you expect to see Bakeware in squares and rectangles, the shape of our Oval Baking Dish is unique. Modeled after vintage pieces, it looks ready for gratins and baked dips. One reason we love our Oval Baking Dish is that it’s the rare shape of Bakeware that lends itself more to sweet than savory. This list of chef recipes provides you with even more inspiration for what types of dishes work well with this shape and material.
Contrary to popular opinion, lasagna doesn’t have to be made with meat. If you’re unsure, Chris Shepherd of Southern Smoke’s recipe will show you that mushrooms can make for an equally hearty and satisfying main course. This dish is a labor of love, but complete with caramelized mushrooms and plenty of cheese, it’ll likely become part of your casserole rotation.
Chef Jesse Griffiths of Dai Due might be famous for his knowledge of meat, but he can make a vegetable dish every bit as delicious. In this recipe for eggplant parmesan, he starts by frying the eggplant in our Dutch Oven before layering it into our Oval Baking Dish with crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and torn basil leaves. Unlike the greasy eggplant parmesan found at chain restaurants, this version is more eggplant-forwardI and gets its richness from the two cheeses instead.
This recipe is perfect for when you have leftover meat in your fridge, and if you don’t, use it as an excuse to pick up some BBQ. Here, Evan LeRoy of LeRoy & Lewis Barbecue uses leftover brisket folded into a roux-based bechamel sauce. Stovetop has its place, but if you’ve never made mac and cheese, this recipe will open your eyes to the possibilities. With four different kinds of cheese baked to creamy perfection, this dish is much more than your average side.
