Try these low-cost casseroles for a tasty winter treat


It’s winter. It’s cold.

A nice treat for a blustery winter day is a bubbling, piping hot casserole fresh from the oven. With a crunchy piece of bread and a hot cup of green tea, you have a tasty, nutritious meal.

Here are nine budget-cutting casseroles from Prevention that are sure to please:

  • Four-Cheese Macaroni Bake
  • Turkey-Veggie Skillet Casserole
  • Chicken Vegetable Pot Pie
  • Chile-Corn Casserole
  • Hearty Shepherd's Pie
  • Green Bean Soufflé With Onion Rings
