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
