A Hamburger Casserole Recipe That Rocks!
This hamburger casserole recipe is super simple to make and taste terrific! It's my grandson's favorite meal besides steak.
Pati used to make this all the time and we called it hamburger pie, even though there is no dough in it. We would make a decent size casserole and it would serve 2 separate meals.
Not anymore. If I make this when my grandson is not here, I'll hear about it. So now there are 3 of us eating it and it's gone in a single setting. That kid gulps it down.
What is funny is I don't like peas but I love this hamburger casserole and it doesn't work with corn or anything.
- 1 lb hamburger
- onion powder to taste
- 4 - 5 peeled potatoes
- 1 can drained peas
- 2 cans tomato soup
- grated cheese (optional)
Brown the hamburger, mixing in the onion powder, and drain the grease. In a greased casserole dish, add the tomato soup, the peas and the hamburger and mix thoroughly.
Make your mashed potatoes as you normally do (make a bit runny)and mix in grated cheese if you want. Try it without first of all and maybe with the cheese the next time. My grandson prefers it without but this picture is the casserole I made while he was camping and has cheese in it. (Don't tell him)
Spread the mashed potatoes over the top of the casserole.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. The reason I like to make the potatoes runnier is because this is going to bake in the oven so it will thicken the potatoes. Place in the oven for about 25 minutes. This adds a kind of crust to the potatoes.
I'm telling you. If you don't like this hamburger casserole recipe, you did something wrong. :-)
