Here’s one of my earliest comfort food favorites, a casserole-like dish of mashed potatoes and melted cheese, now veganized, from Vegetariana. With Daiya or Follow Your Heart vegan cheeses, it’s just as good as any dairy version. more→
Scalloped corn is a comforting casserole that features this all-American veggie topped with tasty bread crumbs. It’s good in cool-weather months using frozen corn, though it’s absolutely fantastic in late summer using fresh corn. Though kind of a simple and humble dish, it’s also welcome at the Thanksgiving table. Photos by Rachael Braun. more→

However, this works best with a really sturdy crusty bread. Using a softer bread can make this come out mushy. more→
