My biggest question about this thread is why is it in the "Dry Rubs and Mops" forum? Probably would be a better fit in "Casseroles", or maybe even in "General Cooking". Just a suggestion for a mod to shift it for easier locating.

Got Garlic is totally right. What it's called matters. That's why we have nouns!

A hot tray as its being described in this thread isn't a casserole or a hot dish anymore than a pie is a tart or a Betty or a buckle. Different yummy things to make and eat.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Mystery solved. They're called Savoury Tray Bakes, and they're all over the web. I thought that 'dry rubs and mops' would have been the right category for it because, to a large extent, they have less moisture than a casserole. However, normally there are always herbs and spices included in the recipes. I'm sure you'll be familiar with these. I've come to the conclusion that the good thing about them is that there seem to be few fixed rules about how they they're made, provided it's a mix of ingredients, flavourings, some moisture but not a lot, and they're ready in a short space of time, so you use portion-size pieces of meat. Some are drier than others. You can do them in advance. A popular one seems to be chicken and chorizo with potatoes and tomatoes. The simple 'tray bake' is cakes of all kinds, as you already said.

Well, I would not want to be in the room when someone calls his boss "cook" instead of "chef".

No matter what they're called, they're a very convenient way of getting a dinner out that's tasty, easy to do, already 'portioned out', frugal on the use of utensils, so my challenge now is: what savoury tray bake would you make? I'm going to do one with pork chops, rosemary, potatoes, bell peppers, aubergines and white wine, and see how that works. Should take about 20 mins to put together plus baking.
