There are plenty of great things about making up casseroles for dinner. First, as mentioned, casseroles are forgiving dishes that usually allow for lots of substitutions and accommodations by the cook. That means a casserole is a great dish for a beginning cook to try his or her hand at. Your new cook can look at the recipe, or make up his or her own recipe, and then make changes to experiment with new flavors and combinations. It is a great learning experience that can lead to the invention of entirely new and neat dishes. And that can be very rewarding for a young person. Even if made the way the recipe calls for, a casserole allows for mistakes in measurement and ingredients. Casseroles are just great ways to make a dinner.

This casserole calls for either turkey or beef. These are very different meats with unique flavors and nutritional values. So you can expect quite different results whether you choose one or the other. But that is one of the fun things about making a casserole. You switch out one ingredient and you have a very different dish. You and your aspiring cook could each make one of these dishes, side by side, one with turkey and the other with beef. Serve them up to your family, and see which flavor appeals to you most. Enjoy this casserole soon.
