Hamburger Casserole is a delicious one-dish meal that is easy to prepare and at a low cost. It’s a good thing for conditioning, so you can add or remove ingredients that you don’t care about. I found one recipe that uses chili sauce instead of soup.
If desired, you can double this recipe and freeze one saucepan for later use.
° 8 oz. Egg noodles
° 1 pound of ground beef
° 1 small onion, chopped
° 1 can tomato soup
° 1 can mushroom soup
° Half a cup of grated cheese
° Half a box of soup from water
° Salt and Pepper
° American cheese slices
Bake the egg noodles according to the box directions, cook until soft, or almost soft. Put the butter in a 2 liter dish and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Brown beef and onions in a large skillet and drain the fat. Add soup, grated cheese, water and noodles to the beef and onions and mix the ingredients well. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and pour into a greased casserole dish. Extra casserole freezes at this point if you make more than one.
Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and place with American cheese slices. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve hot with your favorite bread or vegetables.
To reheat a frozen hamburger casserole, remove the skillet from the freezer and let the glass or stone skillet reach room temperature. If you freeze your aluminum casserole, you won’t need to let it reach room temperature. Doing this first will help break the cold glass or stone dish from shattering in the oven due to the temperature extremes.
Cook in an oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour and a half to two hours or until warm. This could take longer or shorter depending on the oven. Pour the cheese pieces and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Serve hot.
