What Exactly is a Casserole?

A casserole is a deep pan or bowl used in the oven to prepare a variety of meals; it is also a type of cuisine cooked in such a vessel. To distinguish between those two things, the pan is referred to as a “casserole dish” or “casserole pan,” whilst the food is simply referred to as “a casserole.” 

Casserole Popularity

Casseroles originated in France but shot up in popularity in the United States in the 1950s, cementing themselves as an American tradition. That said, various cuisines from across the world have their own variations of cooking in a casserole pan.
