Bake-and-Take Casseroles Your Neighbors Will Love
Despite the ease of texting, emailing, and ordering online, Southerners still believe in doing some things the old-fashioned way. Southern etiquette and hospitality will never be taken over by technology, which is why traditions like writing thank you notes, going to church, and bringing casseroles to your neighbors are still around. Whether a new neighbor just moved in, a current neighbor had a death in the family, or an old neighbor is simply hosting a get-together, a Southerner will respond by bringing over a casserole. Homemade casseroles are comforting and thoughtful, so they’re perfect to bake and take to a friend’s house. Casseroles are easy to make, can be prepped in advance, and freeze easily. These friendship casseroles will remind your neighbors that you care for them and their families. These delicious ideas are versatile for any neighbor’s taste, so find the best one for your friend and make someone's day extra special.

Recipe: Two-Potato Gratin
You’ve never had an au gratin potato casserole like this one, which mixes two kinds of potatoes and two kinds of cheeses.
"This luscious gratin strikes a happy middle chord for those hungry for potatoes and those vying for a sweet potato casserole." —Nancy Vienneau, author of Third Thursday Community Potluck Cookbook, from which this recipe was adapted.
