i'd make this for a holiday fam gathering. but NO canned green beans! canned green beans or canned green peas belong in the garbage outside of a survival situation. bleh! i'd make it with french cut frozen ones, nuked till tender-crisp, drained, and lightly chopped?

or fresh ones like in the recipe.

if your "green" beans have been cooked enough to turn a drab olive tone a food crime has clearly been committed!

i think claire herself IS a casserole.

and for the very LAST time: chicago deep dish or stuffed is a pizza pie. like a chicken pot pie. midwestern casseroles don't have yeasted bottom crusts. they just don't.

sorry. subs, you, and jon stewart, are probably fantastic humans, but it's a pizza style, NOT a casserole. period.

I am curious of what you believe qualifies as casserole
Lasagna? Nachos? Sheppard's pie? Enchiladas? Cobbler? Ratatouille?

What do you think?

Whenever I hear reference to casserole, I can only think of this Taskmaster moment with Mike Wozniak - go to 4:35 or so to hear the line:

What do you think?

I am curious of what you believe qualifies as casserole-


A bunch of ingredients mixed together in a bowl, dumped into a pyrex and baked. Toppings like extra cheese or crushed chips are optional.

Lasagna? Maybe
Nachos? No
Sheppard's pie? Yes
Enchiladas? Maybe
Cobbler? No
Ratatouille? No

Can you name ANY casserole built inside a yeasted, risen bottom crust?

I haven't watched the US version, but r/taskmaster is pretty much the only sub I follow on Reddit, and I've heard it's terrible.

TMNZ is reportedly pretty good, particularly S2, and the non-Anglo ones apart from the Spanish version generally get pretty good reviews. There's a Quebecois version coming soon, too.

Re finding a place to watch it, the TM SuperMax streaming service has many of the non-UK versions, but I'm really not keen on the concept of a streaming service for a single show, no matter how much I enjoy it. Plus, I've heard that it cuts out the banter going into the ad breaks, and that can be amusing.

In terms of watching it, the official Taskmaster YouTube channel has complete episodes of seasons 1-9(might be 8, might be 10), behind the scenes stuff, and clips of the newer episodes.

If you put a little effort, you can probably fine the newer seasons elsewhere on YouTube.

I'm spoiled for TMUK because, being in the UK, I can watch S1-9 on UKTV Play and the whole shebang on All4.

Not sure if VPNs to those sites work, though.

Incidentally, the only celebrity +1s I've ever received from Twitter come from Desiree Burch and Corin Nemec.

Desiree because I suggested she needed a  gong guy like Al Murray had, and I've been so into Stargate SG-1 recently that I sent Corin Nemec a message saying that I think he's aright,

Desiree gave me a +1 and Corin sent of kind of bland message in favour of positivity.

Fugazzeta
Sfincione
Tomato pie


Yeast, but not exactly as a crust:
Strata


Not typically yeasted, but close:
Dutch baby
Quiche
Pizza rustica


You also can make hand pies in a pan, which could convert them into a casserole, but the only one that unaware of some people calling it a casserole is runza.

There are also breads that have enough stuff in them that they might qualify as a casserole.

But the middle image is closer to the first image than the third image, no? I have no instinctive dislike to Chicago deep dish other than the fact that the entire point of pizza is that it's supposed to be baked in a hot oven for a couple of minutes, tops, and Chicago deep dish goes against all those basics.

Maybe it is delicious. It doesn't look delicious, but it might be.

I prefer pizza that is closer to Neapolitan style, because I know it's delicious,

that is classic napoli pizza. there are like at least 20 other famous pizza styles on earth.

i think my bone of contention here is people not actually knowing what "casserole" even means!

luna1580: iron de havilland: I have no instinctive dislike to Chicago deep dish other than the fact that the entire point of pizza is that it's supposed to be baked in a hot oven for a couple of minutes, tops

that is classic napoli pizza. there are like at least 20 other famous pizza styles on earth.


Sure, but most of them are topped flatbreads. Calling Chicago deep dish "pizza" is pretty farked up.

i think my bone of contention here is people not actually knowing what "casserole" even means!
(i admit this is an angle i've never, ever considered before.)

i may need to make some tactical adjustments to my future battle plans......


You're alright, luna, since my argument is not that Chicago deep dish is a casserole, but that it's not even a pizza.

/me battens down hatches.

wait, please define "pizza"!

it MUST be more than "flatbread that was inside of a super hot oven for a few minutes, tops" because then plain, untopped tandoori baked naan is "a pizza".

i say pizza's a flatbread (yeasted everywhere but basically st. louis) topped with a combo of tomatoes and mozzarella.

and then come the MANY variations, as a pizza taxonomist i study them all. some with love and some with horrified fascination!
