Where did casseroles come from anyway? They actually started in Europe based on a casserole ceramic dish. But have since transformed into something different here in the US. Back in the 50s and 60s, people cooked casseroles as a form of comfort food. They definitely scream comfort food to me. The real thing that makes a casserole, food that is cooked and served in the same dish. That leaves the definition wide open. But most have a protein – typically chicken and beef- some kind of starch and often have cheese and/or breadcrumbs on the top. Cream of mushroom, chicken, celery soups were added to casseroles somewhere along the way.
This Poppyseed Chicken Casserole came from a dear friend years and years ago. It’s creamy, buttery and definitely comfort food. Serve it with a salad and some fruit to finish off the meal.
