French for "stew pan", casseroles are a popular baked dish that contain a number of ingredients with a thick sauce. Well-known examples of casseroles are the Italian lasagna, or the American macaroni and cheese. There are tuna casseroles, chicken casseroles, and many other varieties. Casseroles are a highly versatile food, since it only requires some type of meat or vegetable, bread crumbs or pasta to pull them together, and a dense sauce to cook the mixture in. In most cases, casseroles are served directly from the dish it is cooked in. Casserole dishes are thick and designed to withstand long cooking periods. Because they dish is thick and coated with enamel or glaze, it promotes the formation of a crust on the top of the casserole.
