Individual casserole dish

I am looking for some individual casserole dishes for pot pies, lasagna, shepards pie, etc.

Does anyone have some they really like? Certain things I should be looking for? Size, material, etc.?

Thanks for the help!

I would think that any ramekin would work. I know they usually only go to what, 8oz? But, I've seen them bigger in restaurant supply stores.

We use Corningware ramekins. Amazon.com: corningware ramekins

They're reasonably priced and readily available. If there is a Corningware outlet store handy, that's a good place to get them. At least some of the sizes come with plastic lids.

I have 8 old school LeCreuset/Descoware individual casseroles I bought years ago at a thrift shop.



I love them!

I have the plain white high-sided ceramic round ones that others have pictured here that are sort of like individual souffle dishes. Have had them for 10 years & haven't used them yet - lol!!

The ones I HAVE used on an almost weekly basis are plain white ovals (approx. 3" high x 4" wide x 7-1/2" long). They're pretty much just ceramic individual "au gratin" dishes. Absolutely perfect for individual servings of pasta, flounder stuffed with crabmeat, Crab Imperial, etc., etc., etc. I bought them the same time I bought the others from a chain store called "Kitchens & Things" that unfortunately, I believe, is no longer in business.

My personal experience is that you'd get a LOT more use out of individual oval-shaped dishes than the little round ones, but for pot pies et al, you'd probably be better off with the round ones. Luckily, they're pretty inexpensive, so you might want to think about getting a set of both.

I LOVE those! Gorgeous!

I've got some smaller le creuset baking dishes that I love. I'm also a fan of vintage pyrex, but I haven't let myself start collecting them. Yet.

I do like the oval ones. I just have not been able to find anything. I will go out to a few different kitchen and restaraunt supply stores and see if they have anything.

Just used my oval ones again the other night for hubby & me: a layer of extra-virgin-oil sauteed jumbo shrimp, a layer of homemade Blue Claw Crab lump crabmeat stuffing, another layer of shrimp, & a light topping of buttered breadcrumbs & grated parmesan cheese.

NAchef - maybe do some searching online. Try search words like "individual au gratin dishes" or "individual baking dishes", etc., etc.
