Upon seeing these colorful dishes, you might be saying, “Oh! My grandma had a casserole dish just like that! Where could it be now?” (And, if you’re like me, now feel compelled to fill every cabinet in your kitchen with them.)
The kitschy kitchenware above is just a sampling of what the Pyrex company has been putting forth since the early 20th century. Durable, affordable, and memorable, these colorful casserole dishes are collected by many a vintage lover. They’re available on Etsy, Ebay, and, if you’re lucky, your local thrift store. For a slightly modern twist on these culinary classics, check out our Gourmet Gardens Container Set.
What does one do with these dishes besides gaze at them? Bake casseroles in them, of course! Check out this yummy Summer Squash Casserole recipe, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, this 1955 recipe for Ham Casserole that includes ham, sweet potatoes, pineapples, and marshmallows.
