Did you know that casserole originally referred to the pan in which the dish was cooked? Casserole is from a French word meaning “sauce-pan”.

A casserole is a large, deep dish used either to cook something in an oven or to serve the food cooked in it. Learn more about the origin of casserole here.

The French word  “casserole”  had been derived from the old Provencal word, “cassa” and the Medieval Latin word, “cattia”, both of these words meaning “ladle”. This seemed to imply that these words were describing a common pot from which everyone shared. 

The idea of casserole cooking as a one dish meal became popular in the United States in the 1950s.

Do you remember the corning ware with the cornflower blue pattern? I still have a small version from my grandmother.
