I think maybe donnablue is asking for tried and true recipes... I'm sorry I can't be of much help, as the only casserole I really make is spinach lasagna and baked ziti, which I think are probably not quite what you're looking for...

This is like a rustic, crustless quiche. It's very easy and delicious. Great side dish or brunch dish; original recipe is from a Shaker cookbook.

1 pound cottage cheese (I use Michigan brandsmall curd)
3 eggs, unbeaten
1 cup mild cheddar cheese, grated
3 T. butter cut up into bits
1 package frozen chopped spinachÂthawed or partially thawedÂand drained
3 T. flour
Salt to taste

Lightly combine cottage cheese, eggs, cheese, and butter. DonÂt overmix.

Add spinach, flour, and salt. Stir until thoroughly blended.

Place in a buttered casserole dish. I use a 2-inch deep dish 6.5 x 8.5 inches.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour.

The butter/fat will rise to the surface. I pour it off just as with meatloaf.

The top will be golden when done.

I'm a casserole lover, too. Here are a couple more:

8 small boneless chicken breasts
16 oz can sauerkraut
4 slices Swiss cheese
8 oz Thousand Island salad dressing
1 TBL chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 375°. In a 9x13" baking dish arrange chicken breasts in 1
layer. Rinse sauerkraut & press out water. Cut cheese slices. Sprinkle
sauerkraut on chicken breasts. Top w/dressing & cheese. Bake 40 minutes
covered or until tender. Garnish w/parsley.~~

You can just use chicken breasts for this one:

Three 2 lb chicken, cut up
1 1/2 cups chopped celery tops
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 medium onion, sliced
2 1/2 tsp salt
5 TBL butter
8 oz mushrooms, wiped, trimmed & sliced
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup heavy cream
2 1/2 TBL dry sherry
3-4 TBL sliced blanched almonds
8 oz box egg noodles, boiled & drained
3/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
5 TBL grated Parmesan

Place the chicken pieces in a large pan with the celery, parsley, onion, 2 tsp salt & 3 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat & simmer until tender. Remove the skin & bones from the chicken & cut the meat into bite-sized chunks. Strain & reserve the broth.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan. When hot, add the mushrooms & saute 2 minutes. Stir in the flour, remaining 1/2 tsp of salt & the pepper. Gradually stir in 2 cups of the reserved broth along with the cream & cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add the chicken & sherry to the sauce. Add the almonds.
Place the noodles in a greased shallow baking dish. Top with the chicken mixture. Sprinkle w/bread crumbs & cheese. Brown under the broiler.~~300 Years of Carolina Cooking

This is a favorite here. I cut it in half for just the 2 of us but it is good leftover also.
Beef Enchilada Casserole
2 lbs. ground beef
1T oil
3T chili powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp oregano
2T paprika
1/3c flour
1Qt tomato sauce
1/2c water
1 1/2-2 dozen corn tortillas, cut in quarters
Cheddar cheese
chopped onion
2 small cans green chilies
Brown beef in oil and add chili powder, salt, oregano, paprika and flour. Stir well; add liquids and chilies and simmer for ten minutes.
In a large baking dish, place a layer of meat sauce and cover with tortillas. Add approximately half of the remaining sauce and top with a really generous sprinkling of onions and cheese. Cover with remaining tortillas and remaining sauce. Top with more onions and cheese. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or til bubbling and very hot. Can be made a day ahead and then heated when ready to serve.
Serves 10.

This is an old standby that one of the nurses that worked for me in VA shared years ago. Still a favorite:
Broccoli Casserole
2 pk frozen chopped broccoli (or equal amount of fresh)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1c grated cheddar cheese
1c mayonnaise
2T finely minced onion
pepper to taste
1c crushed cheese crackers
Cook broccoli til tender.Combine all ingredients except cheese crackers and blend well. Pour into casserole dish, top with cracker crumbs and bake at 400° for 30 minutes. May be made ahead of time and refrigerated but top with crumbs just before baking.

And something a bit different.......but good from Taste of Home, I think,
Nutty Barley Bake
1 med. onion, chopped
1c med. pearl barley
1/2c slivered almonds
1/4c butter
1/2c minced fresh parsley
1/4c thinly sliced green onions
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1can beef consomme+1/2c water
In a skillet over med heat, saute onion, barley, and nuts in butter til barley is lightly browned. Stir in parsley, green onion, salt and pepper. Transfer to a greased 2qt baking dish. Stir in consomme and water. Bake uncovered at 350° for 1 hr and 15 minutes til barley is tender and liquid is absorbed.
Yields: 4-6 servings

Well, Donna, I guess you're just going to have to stick around!

I've made Roselin's nutty barley casserole twice and we just love it!

Pat, I didn't know that you had a website, it looks great and I'll be looking at it in more detail.

Thanks for all the new recipes, ladies.

Here's another:

This was a simple but prize winning recipe in a cross country cooking contest sponsored by a Canadian womens' magazine in the 1960s.

I had it first at a dinner party where the hostess had made mimeographed copies of the recipe beforehand as she said everyone asked for it when she served this dish. This was before the days of photocopiers ! LOL.

Tastes better if made one day ahead.

1 kilo of veal shoulder steak, cut into small bite-size pieces
2 medium onions, sliced
1 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup or tomato sauce
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teasp salt
1/2 teasp pepper
1 1/2 cups cashews (rinse if they are salted)
2 TBS butter
Worcestershire sauce

1). Grind garlic, salt and pepper together in mortar and pestle.

2). Roll veal pieces in this mixture in the mortar and then on a clean plate, being sure pieces are well coated.

3). Brown veal in butter in a saucepan. When brown, add onions, water, tomato sauce and cashews.

4). Simmer slowly until meat and nuts are both tender. About 40 minutes. It may need a bit of water added.

5). Thicken with a bit of flour and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce.

6). Best served the next day. Goes well with rice and a crisp green salad.

I serve it with roast lamb, steak, chicken.........whenever I want a change from potatoes or rice. Made it for some friends one night and he looked at his wife and said, "Why don't we ever have barley??" It really makes a nice change.
