Casserole or hot dish?
I’ll begin with dictionary definitions, before divulging my own personal opinion on this matter.
Casserole: Noun. A kind of stew that is cooked slowly in an oven.
Hot dish: Noun. Hot food cooked and served in a deep covered dish.
I’ll note that the definition of hot dish was difficult to find, as most major dictionaries don’t have it as an entry.
This fact feeds my belief that the casserole is a superior supper. There it is — I think casserole is better.
