Hamburger Casserole Recipe

This recipe is such a hit it's "traveled" all over the country! My mother originated the recipe in Pennsylvania...I brought it to Texas when I married...I'm still making it in California...and my daughter treats her friends to this "oldie" in Colorado. It's hearty yet simple to prepare. —Helen Carmichall, Santee, California
