Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 50 min.
Quick, simple and tasty
Got this recipe back in the mud 90s from a TOH magazine, my husband and I loved it was quick to fix when I got home from work, we would eat dill pickles with it. Definitely a keeper !
Love this recipe. It is so easy to make. I double it so I have leftovers.
So easy and looks so good!
This is pretty good, but I did make some changes, of course don’t we all lol. So first I browned my ground beef with Worcester sauce, then drained excess and fat. I then used cream of bacon soup instead of mushroom. Finally I used steak fries, which meant it cooked about 15 min more. Finally I sprinkled some shredded cheese on top and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving. The great thing though is they ate it up and I had no leftovers, and bonus, the kids liked it so much they did the dishes!
I made this for my grandkids but found I didn't have any hamburger. I used frozen mini meatballs instead and it was a big hit. What kid doesn't like meatballs? Definately a favorite!
I made some changes to the original recipe and it came out pretty tasty. I shredded some onion into the beef and it was cooking. I also took a few pickle spears and gave them a rough dice and mixed them into the cheese soup. I also omitted the mushroom soup mix since my kids won't touch them. I finished it all off with a little squirt of ketchup that I mixed in. Will be making this one again!
I am giving this 5 stars BUT I added Johnny's Seasoning to it and that's what made the huge difference. Even my 10 year old daughter said this was a "do-over".
I've been making this since my kids were little (now my Grandkids eat it) and it's a good basic recipe that you can tweak to your own tastes, as written it definitely needs jazzing up. I use 85/15 ground beef and brown it first by itself (no need to pour off any of the seasonings with the fat) then spoon off some but all of the fat. When I add the soups I also include 8 strips of thick sliced bacon which has been diced and cooked til crisp, 1 Tb yellow mustard, 1 tsp dill weed, 1/4 cup finely diced onion, 1/2 tsp granulated garlic, 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1/2 tsp Wrights liquid hickory smoke for a BBQ'd flavor. I Sprinkle seasoned salt to taste on the fries before putting them on the meat/soup mixture. After I dish mine up I put some ketchup on the fries and I think it tastes like the best diner comfort food ever.
I was skeptical reading this recipe, but after all the positive reviews, I thought I would give it a try. Unfortunately, we didn't find it very tasty. The kids ate it, but was just all right. Also does not reheat well. I won't be making it again. i'm glad others enjoy it, though.
