Cooler weather has finally arrived—unless of course you’re in L.A., and in that case, we’re sweating in sympathy with you. There’s something about chilly temps that makes us crave all things carb-laden and cozy, so for our 11th installment of our 31 Days Series, we’re bringing you 30 days of fall casseroles to warm up with this month, because nothing says cozy like a casserole. They’re the proverbial queen of comfort food.
A longtime staple in America’s cuisine, these baked concoctions appear at family reunions, holiday gatherings, potlucks, and more. Maybe you grew up on your mom’s tuna noodle casserole, or your grandma’s chicken and rice—either way, any time you take a bite of one, the nostalgia reigns and food memories come flooding back.

From French, to Mexican, to Cajun, to Italian, (with plenty of vegetarian options sprinkled in), we’ve got every kind of casserole you could dream of.
