13x9 Casseroles That Deserve A Spot on Your Thanksgiving Table
We’re thankful for our 13x9 casserole dishes every day of the year, but Thanksgiving is their shining moment. Most of our favorite holiday casseroles like classic cornbread dressing, old-school green bean casserole, and our best-ever Macaroni and Cheese come together with the help of our trusty 13x9 pan. Perhaps our favorite thing about these winning casserole recipes is that they can be prepared in advance to take some of the stress out of the Thanksgiving Day feast. Not to mention the size of the dish ensures that there will be plenty for everyone, and hopefully even some leftovers to enjoy the next day.
