Casseroles and Chocolate on the Go Caters To Hungry People On The Go
Abraham Catering is launching a new division called "" Offering fresh, homemade entrees, sides and desserts for takeout.
"Meals are packaged in ready-to-go pans, with baking instructions included," Abraham Catering President Brian Kobs said. "It's perfect for families who are tired of pizza and burgers. They can pick up a fresh casserole after work, pop it in the oven and enjoy a great dinner."  For about $7 a person, customers can enjoy a casserole, salad and dessert," Kobs said. "That's comparable with fast food options, but it's much healthier and well-balanced."
Offerings include breakfast quiches and casseroles, dinner casseroles, salads, and a variety of desserts (pies, cookies, brownies and bars). Casseroles can be heated immediately or frozen.
Orders require 24 hours advance notice. Selections can be made on the company's website,, or by calling (402) 331-6610. Orders are picked up from the Abraham Catering headquarters, 5520 Miller Avenue in downtown Ralston.
