Or comfort food! I love casseroles, you can't really mess them up, they are fast, it's a bunch of food groups in one dish, you can sneek vegetables in them for the kids, and best of all they are great for bad moods and discomfort!
Cabbage and meat mildly seasoned with garlic and onions in a creamy cheese sauce and topped with breadcrumbs for a pretty presentation! A real comfort food. Even those who say they HATE cabbage will eat this and like it! I have even made this without the meat- using bulgur and veggie broth. Here is how: Just replace the meat with the same amount of bulgur- (for 1 lb of meat sub 1 cup bulgur) you will want to soak the bulgur according to the instructions on the package- if you bought it in bulk here is how...
Bring 2 cups of veggie broth ( can use bouillon and water) per 1 cup bulgur
When broth is boiling stir in bulgur. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until bulgur is soft. All the broth should be absorbed. Fluff the bulgur with a fork as you would rice and add to your recipe.
I have used beef, pork, turkey and chicken with great results too.

This is a wonderful and simple to prepare comfort food using things you probably already have around. Kids love it- but so do adults. At least, in this home. Try it. It is one of my quick and easy favorites. This is my first submitted recipe... be kind.
This is the only chili recipe I've used for the last 8 years or so. I think its pretty outstanding. I vary the hot ingredients depending on who will be eating it and the mood I'm in. I've also used ground venison and it was just as good.
I like this mac and cheese because the sauce is smooth, gooey and delicious--and it doesn't curdle while baking like some recipes. Make sure you use a big enough pan for baking, otherwise the sauce will ooze onto the floor of your oven! The mozzarella cheese is the key to this recipe--don't leave it out. You can use the noodles from 2 7-ounce boxes of regular macaroni and cheese mix for this recipe, just discard the cheese packets (or try mixing them in).
This is a classic favorite of all of the Luby's Cafeteria customers. From the Luby's 50th Anniversary Recipe Collection Cookbook. The taste of this M&C might be a little bland, but you can always kick it up.
This recipe is an approximation of a famous dish in Cincinnati called "Skyline Chili" or just "Skyline". The original recipe was developed by a Greek who owned several chili parlors, and is very different from what most of us think of as chili. It's very popular in Cincinnati, but the recipe is kept very closely guarded secret. My husband LOVES Skyline, so I found 2 recipes that he declares are the closest to the one made in Cincinnati. This is the first recipe. When serving, you have to serve the chili with the toppings - each person can make their chili "3-way", "4-way" or "5-way" depending on the number of toppings they add.
