The word “casserole” comes from the French word for “saucepan” or “stew pan”, and refers to a dish that’s used both for baking in the oven and for serving. The casserole dish is usually a large, thick, and deep piece of bakeware and is often coated with a layer of enamel or glaze. The design helps to keep food from burning or drying out during long cooking in the oven, and promotes the formation of a crust on the top of the food to seal in flavor.
