Publisher Comments:

With Cover and Bake, the editors at Cook?s Illustrated set out to revive the venerable casserole. From Turkey Tetrazzini and Chicken Divan to Crab Imperial and Hoppin? John, casserole cooking represents the ingenuity and practicality of the American cook. In Cover and Bake, the editors set out to investigate the old standards and in the process have re-imagined the art of the one-dish meal to meet the demands of today?s cook.

Here you will find classic assemble-and-bake casseroles like Macaroni and Cheese and Creamy Chicken and Rice as well as more inventive dishes like Mediterranean Chicken Bake and Polenta Casserole with Italian Sausage. We?ve experimented with techniques that allow you to cook everything in just one pot where possible, avoiding the need for hours of preparation and clean up just to get a casserole in the oven. And nearly every recipe can be made ahead allowing busy cooks to serve these wholesome dishes on a busy weeknight.

Looking beyond what most people consider to be a casserole, the editors offer a rather original take on the subject with inventive skillet "casseroles," slow cooker meals that are really worth serving, pot pies with multiple topping options (many of which you can make ahead), oven braises and stews that cook in a low oven for hours so you won?t have to stand over a hot stove, and breakfast and brunch dishes that can be assembled the night before.

In addition, this book contains all the relevant tastings and testings conducted in America?s Test Kitchen. Learn which casserole dish is our hands-down favorite. Are all storage containers created the same? Want to know which slow cooker has the best combination of features?

In short, Cover and Bake is filled with 200 one-dish meals for everyday cooking. We?ve made these casseroles a whole lot better tasting while making sure that what everyone loves about casseroles remains — the fact that they are practical one-dish meals that require a minimum of fuss and last minute attention.


An authoritative guide to one-dish comfort food classics. Features one-pot and one-dish main course favorites to substantial vegetable and grain casseroles.

I have made many of these recipies from this book. I love the entire series -- there is no such thing as a bad Cook's illustrated recipe. They are explained well and can accomodate a wide variety of cooking skills. What I love about Cover and Bake is that many of the recipes are easy to set up, they are great for the winter time, and they taste great.
