Freezable Casseroles You Can Make in an 8x8 Dish
While there’s no denying our 9x13 casserole dish will always be first in our heart, 8x8 pans certainly have an upside. They take up less freezer space and are ideal for weeknight dinners for families of four or less. Fun fact: If a recipe calls for an 11x7 dish, you can substitute an 8x8 dish because it’s deeper and still holds the same volume. Taking a day to prep a few meals to keep your freezer stocked can help make busy weeknights less stressful and will come in handy when you have last-minute company drop by.
