casserole

A casserole is a covered ovenproof dish in which food is cooked and served.

Table manners for individual-sized casseroles. When a small covered casserole is presented on a dinner plate, the cover is removed, rested on the side of the plate, rim-side down, and the contents are eaten directly from the casserole.

Table manners for large casseroles. If a large covered casserole is placed above the dinner plate, the lid is removed, rested rim-side down on the underplate or dinner plate, and a portion is transferred from the casserole to the dinner plate with the accompanying serving utensil. To preserve the temperature, between servings the lid of the large casserole is replaced.
