Create Your Own Casserole Challenge

Are you guys up for a cooking challenge?  I thought it would be fun to try one this month and then have it be the theme for “What can I eat that’s gluten free?” on February 3rd.  Even if you don’t have a blog, I would like you to join in.  Give the challenge a try, and if you want, you can email me with what you made and maybe a picture.  You could also tell us about it in the comments of that post.

I happen to love casseroles.  All kinds.  I like the old fashioned mushy ones and I love making my own cream of something soup to go in them.  I also like coming up with casseroles that don’t quite fit that mold.  My challenge to you is:

  • Read the post:  Create a Gluten-Free Casserole.
  • Create at least one casserole this month.
  • Please tell me about it by linking up, commenting, or sending me an email.  You can tell me everything you did, or just that you did it and whether it was good or not.  Simply knowing that you participated will help me determine if I should continue doing challenges.

To give you some inspiration, here are previous casserole recipes that I created:

I’ll be doing this challenge myself this month and will probably post one or two of my creations before February 3rd.  Have fun getting creative!

    I love the idea of a cooking challenge! I haven't made a casserole in a while because I'm trying (although generally failing) to stay away from cheese, but I can't imagine a good casserole without it. So maybe that my will be my own little personal challenge for the challenge.

If you have a question about a recipe (especially substitutions and nutritional information), please read my FAQ page before asking the question in a comment.
