What we really think is, it’s a casserole redux.
Dinner Dumps. Where did the name come from? Was it from the experience of emptying a Bertolli frozen dinner bag into your large skillet?
Yes, there are recipes for dump cakes, dump desserts, dump soups and dump dinners for oven, dump dinners for slow cooker and dump dinners for pressure cooker. For this, we chose to look into dump dinners for the oven, because we feel more flavor is achieved and less cooking means more nutrition.
Dinner dumps give you the opportunity to combine your starch, veggie and protein all in one oven-to-table baking dish. It’s all made from fresh ingredient with no preservatives and can taste pretty good! With dumps, you don’t pain-stakingly sauté your aromatics at the end of a long day. You won’t be browning the meat, either. Liquids are usually blended in a separate bowl, then poured over the layered items. You then pop the pan into the oven for 30 to 60 minutes, depending upon the recipe.

Aside from chicken, find Pork Chops and Gravy, Cheddar with Broccoli, Easy Baked Fish, Turkey and Wild Rice, Spicy Rice Casserole and more.
