10 Casserole Recipes from the Our State Archives

We’ve collected a selection of tried and true casserole recipes that have been featured over the decades — some of which were published when we were still called The State. You’ll want to bookmark this page for your summer potluck dinners.


Bob Garner’s Livermush Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s pie is reimagined with the help of livermush, a staple in some North Carolina communities. This casserole is comfort food at its finest and was featured in the August 2008 issue of Our State.


Asparagus Au Gratin

This cheesy dish from the June 1999 issue of Our State is a perfect addition to any Thanksgiving table — or, dare we say, an alternative to your usual green bean casserole.


Carefree Chicken Casserole

It’s called “carefree” for a reason: It’s likely that all of the ingredients are already in your cupboard or refrigerator, and you can easily have it ready in less than 30 minutes. It was originally featured in the August 1980 issue of The State.
