Casserole

A casserole is a type of food that is typically made by layering ingredients in a baking dish and then baking them until they are cooked through. Casseroles have been around for centuries, with early versions being mentioned in cookbooks from the Middle Ages.

One of the earliest casserole recipes comes from a 13th century French cookbook, which includes a dish called “Timbales of Lobster”. This dish was made by layering cooked lobster, bread crumbs, and cheese in a pastry shell.

Casseroles became more popular in the 18th century, when they were often made with cream and eggs. These early casseroles were more like custards or soufflés, and were often served as a dessert.
