Typically casserole recipes consist of pieces of meat to usually include chicken, or fish (tuna is a popular fish choice), a variety of chopped up vegetables, a starchy binder such as rice, potato, flour, or pasta, and a cheesy or crunchy topping. Liquids that are released from the meat and vegetables while they cook and further liquid that are added in the form of stock, beer, wine, or vegetable juice may also be added when the recipe is being made. Casserole recipes are usually slow cooked in the oven, most often uncovered. Casserole recipes may be served as a main dish or as a side dish recipe, and can be served in the dish that they were cooked in.
