My husband loves to come home to dinner on the table when he gets in from a long day at work. I love to cook for him so making some of our favourite casseroles during the winter months make dinner prep a lot easier for me. I like to prep casseroles in the morning and then store them in the fridge until it is time to put them in the oven for dinner. I find that really frees up my day to do things with my daughter and help her with her school work for the day.

2 eggs, whisked
