Create Your Own Casserole Challenge

Are you guys up for a cooking challenge?  I thought it would be fun to try one this month and then have it be the theme for “What can I eat that’s gluten free?” on February 3rd.  Even if you don’t have a blog, I would like you to join in.  Give the challenge a try, and if you want, you can email me with what you made and maybe a picture.  You could also tell us about it in the comments of that post.

I happen to love casseroles.  All kinds.  I like the old fashioned mushy ones and I love making my own cream of something soup to go in them.  I also like coming up with casseroles that don’t quite fit that mold.  My challenge to you is:
To give you some inspiration, here are previous casserole recipes that I created:
I’ll be doing this challenge myself this month and will probably post one or two of my creations before February 3rd.  Have fun getting creative!


I love the idea of a cooking challenge! I haven't made a casserole in a while because I'm trying (although generally failing) to stay away from cheese, but I can't imagine a good casserole without it. So maybe that my will be my own little personal challenge for the challenge.
What fun Linda! I love casseroles =D. Can't wait to see everyone's!
Mmm, I think I want to do a breakfast casserole! Haven't had one of those in years :)
