Hello, and welcome to Will It Casserole?, the column where I take your delicious concepts and re-imagine them as delicious casserole creations. Today we’re taking one of my favorite sandwiches and transforming into a cheesy, ham-studded, layered piece of edible art.

Hot-chocolate secrets, spilled Hot-chocolate secrets, spilled

In How Do You Take Yours?, The Takeout solicits staff and outside expertise for secret tips on improving one dish.

Make Cannabis-Infused Chocolate Gelt for an Adult Game of Dreidel This Hanukkah Make Cannabis-Infused Chocolate Gelt for an Adult Game of Dreidel This Hanukkah

Dreidel is the kiddo’s version of gambling, or so I grew up thinking! As history would have it, it came all the way across Europe from Ireland before becoming a Yiddish and then Hebrew favorite. A spinning top with four rules is chill, but playing with a little enhanced chocolate could help you take it to the…

You Don't Need Fancy Tools To Clean Peppers You Don't Need Fancy Tools To Clean Peppers

Peppers, of any variety, are a pain in the ass. Irregularly shaped, filled with bitter ribs and somewhere between 12 and 850,000 tiny seeds that make their way into the darker recesses of your kitchen, hoping to be found one day by anthropologists who proclaim “They were just like us!”

Making Your Own Festive Bark Is Incredibly Easy Making Your Own Festive Bark Is Incredibly Easy

Snappy, treat-studded chocolate bark is a holiday treat that is always met with much enthusiasm. (Williams Sonoma is able to charge 30 bucks per pound for their peppermint iteration, making it more expensive than organic rib eye.) There is, however, no reason to spend a bunch on bark, as it can be made in your kitchen…

KitchenAid Unveils New All-Terrain Rolling Pin KitchenAid Unveils New All-Terrain Rolling Pin

BENTON HARBOR, MI—Calling the rugged utensil a necessity for those who bake as hard as they live, KitchenAid on Thursday unveiled its new all-terrain rolling pin. “The DuraDough rolling pin features a larger cylinder diameter lined with specialized treads to take on heavy-duty dough prep,” said company spokesperson…

Make Galette Instead of Pie for a Less Stressful Holiday Make Galette Instead of Pie for a Less Stressful Holiday

Pie is one of those things that some people just have a knack for. I am not so blessed. For those like me, there’s a lot of stress surrounding the dessert, and these people should embrace galette.

Make This Fudge Without a Candy Thermometer Make This Fudge Without a Candy Thermometer

There are candy makers, and there are candy eaters, and I am firmly in the latter camp. Though I don’t mind a cathartic candy-crafting sesh, my main goal—during the holidays especially—is to churn out the treats. This is why this fudge, which takes less than five minutes of your active time, gets made every single…

Two Easy Ways to Poach an Egg Two Easy Ways to Poach an Egg

Poached eggs are the super stars of brunch and the heroes of salads that eat like a meal, but many a home cook is put off by the process of cooking one. If you are skittish about dropping a raw egg into simmering water, relax, it’s not as hard as it’s cracked up to be.

We love our dogs. Should we cook for them? We love our dogs. Should we cook for them?

Food is love. It’s why your family gets together for your favorite meal when you come home, and why your beloved brings you breakfast in bed, or why your friends buy you doughnuts and drinks on your birthday. When you feed someone, it’s a sign you care about their well-being, that you want them to continue to live,…

Smoked Lamb Is Easier Than It Sounds Smoked Lamb Is Easier Than It Sounds

There are plenty of traditional holiday meals to think about as we near the end of the month. Rib roasts, even more turkey, a sporadic ham or wellington. But I’m a bigger fan of lamb—and not just frenched racks, but whole legs. And with the unseasonably warm weather we’ve had since May, I think it’s high time we talk…

How to Eat Around the World Safely With Food Allergies How to Eat Around the World Safely With Food Allergies

Seeing the world is an enlightening experience, but it can also be a dangerous one if you’re allergic to things like nuts, gluten, soy, lactose, shellfish, and others foods. That doesn’t have to hold you back, though. Here are a few tips to help you travel and eat safely.

Pickled Cranberries Are Your New Favorite Condiment Pickled Cranberries Are Your New Favorite Condiment

The humble, bog-dwelling cranberry may be the most underutilized seasonal ingredient of all time. I mean no disrespect to cranberry sauce when I say this, but there’s so much more you can do with these tart little nuggets than cook them in sugar water until they collapse.

Why You Should Never Microwave a Hard Boiled Egg

Thinking of finishing off that soft boiled egg in the microwave? Or quickly heating up that already hard boiled egg because it’s too cold? Don’t do it unless you want insanely hot egg on your face.

Your Roasted Vegetables Need a Little Fish Sauce Your Roasted Vegetables Need a Little Fish Sauce

The best vegetable is a roasted vegetable, and the best roasted vegetables are finished with fish sauce. The pungent, salty, and sweet sauce is the perfect companion for all sorts of earthy plant parts, from starchy potatoes to cruciferous sprouts.

Make Cheesecake for Two In Record Time With Your Instant Pot Make Cheesecake for Two In Record Time With Your Instant Pot

Cheesecake is one of my favorite sweet things on this earth but, as a household of one with an occasional lactose-intolerant visitor, I’m not in the habit of making whole cheesecakes for the home. There is, however, a way to make just enough cheesecake for two (or one, twice) in an Instant Pot, and it takes about half…

Make Your Own Golden Syrup for the Best Pecan Pie of Your Life Make Your Own Golden Syrup for the Best Pecan Pie of Your Life

Corn syrup is gross. I guess it’s okay in small quantities—say, to give homemade caramels a bit of chew—but it’s too one-note to be a standalone sweetener. As such, I avoid it when I can.

Boozy Balls Are the Season's Classy Answer to the Jell-O Shot Boozy Balls Are the Season's Classy Answer to the Jell-O Shot

The holidays give us carte blanche to consume both alcohol and sugar with reckless abandon—bonus points if you can streamline the process. Gelatinous shots may be the millennial-prefered vehicle for the two substances but, like Pete Shweddy before me, I prefer a festive ball.

How to Measure Pepper Straight From the Grinder How to Measure Pepper Straight From the Grinder

Until recently, I never measured freshly ground pepper. If a recipe called for half a teaspoon, I would simply grind the berries over the dish until I thought I had “enough,” based on nothing but my nose and how pungent I was feeling that day, because there was no elegant way to measure it by teaspoon from the…

How Should We Sous Vide Our Christmas Goose? How Should We Sous Vide Our Christmas Goose?

Great news, everyone: I have ordered us a Christmas goose to sous vide. This means that you won’t be helping me pick what we sous vide for Christmas, but you can help determine how we will sous vide it.
