Many Easy Casserole Recipes come from the state of Indiana.  Some of these recipes have been passed down through generations.  

Traditional midwestern cuisine can be compared to a Thanksgiving dinner, featuring wild caught game and plenty of hardy vegetables.  

The flavors and styles of Indiana cuisine draws on influences of Native American culture, as well as on the culinary input of British, Irish, and German Immigrants.  

Today's Indiana cuisine is further influenced by spices and flavors found in Mexico and India.    

These flavors are reflected in Indiana's many traditional Casserole Recipes.  

Aside from casseroles, two dishes popular in the Indianapolis area are the Sugar Cream Pie and the Pork Tenderloin Sandwich.
