    Ok, I am starting to offer casseroles in my freezer case in the front of my shoppe. I am wanting to know what types of casseroles freeze well and that will taste good. I have the standards, chicken and rice, pastas, beef stroganoff and such..........anyone have any other ideas? I want to make this really wonderful. I already have a ton of clients and we are selling out all the time.....just want a few more options....

    Just a thought, but if you are selling out all the time, ask them what they want. And perhaps sell it to them RTG (ready to go) instead of frozen. As far as frozen however.
    Meatloaff
    Meatballs in Sauce (lots of different kinds : Turkey, Beef, Italian, Lamb .....)
    Chicken Caccatoro
    BBQ Whatever - Pulled Pork, Beef, Ribs, Etc.
    Pot Pies
    Eggplant Parm
    Chilis - Sirloin, Turkey, Chicken and black Bean, Pork Verdi

    Also See what other folks in your area are offering
    or do a serch on the net (google it)

    When I was personal cheffing alot I'd walk through the frozen food isles of grocery stores....you can sure pick up alot of ideas that way.

    Soups, stews work well, braises
    Stuffed chicken with a sauce
    Fillo with a goo filling....ie, mexican chicken, groud or shredded lamb anything that has a dense sauce
    Stuffed sauced pasta....cannaloni is a good one or shells
    twist the BBQ and make curry or asian meats
    calazones
    cheesy bread
