Casserole dishes and other recipes with home made, fresh baked, muffins, yeast breads, and
biscuits recipes from the 50's, 60's, and 70''s.  I collect handwritten recipes.  
You can use meat, fish, or poultry as the main ingredient.

Casserole recipes are easy to make, tasty, and nutritious too!

The selections are endless.  You can start with sea food casseroles, like tuna, with or without
noodles, go for chicken, hamburger, vegetables, or potato casserole.

These tasty dishes are a breeze to create from scratch too.  They run the gamut from
breakfast to brunch to supper. Kings and Queens have eaten these hot kitchen delights.

I have always love these dishes and I know you will too.

Each recipe is taken from an old handwritten recipe file box.  The mom's who wrote and kept
these recipes were from the 50's, 60's, or 70's,  I have added their names when I can find
them.  I add recipes when I find them.

By the way, many of these recipes pre-date Hamburger Helpers Recipes for Tuna Noodle
Casserole Helper.  They require a little effort.

My mom and me in 1972.
A collection of vintage casserole dishes from the 1950's, 60's, and 70's, including the ever
famous, tuna noodle casseroles.

The casserole dish was every mom's favorite recipe from coast to coast back in the 1950's thru
the 1970's.  We were always going to some sort of family affair or a friends home.

The casserole recipe was all important for bringing just the right dish to the gathering.  Perfect
for that one dish meal at home too.
