Those first few weeks when the kids head back to school can be among the most hectic for families. The lazy days of summer quickly give way to crazy schedules, homework and after-school activities. And don’t forget somehow managing to slip dinner into the middle of all that.

This is why a do-ahead dinner can be a lifesaver as families get accustomed to their new routines. We created this easy, kid-friendly ham and cheese casserole that can be prepped and refrigerated the night before, then popped in the oven the next evening.

Here’s another bonus – the leftovers make a great breakfast the next day, too.
