Recipe For Cheeseburger Casserole

The cheeseburger casserole is a very popular casserole. If there is an archive out there somewhere, it is definitely in the top five. Casseroles are a favorite family entrée. They consist of everything needed for a full meal and can sit for quite some time after cooking them.

Key ingredients in a recipe for cheeseburger casserole usually include ground beef, although you can use certain alternatives such as ground turkey or pork, or if you are vegetarian, ground tofu would work just as well. Once the meat, or "mock-meat", is browned, a common approach many use is to combine in it some grilled onions. Followed by that, tomato sauce and catsup are generally included, though there is the occasional method of using chopped canned tomatoes in addition or substitution, whichever you prefer.

Many recipes are topped off with cheese. You can use any cheese you like. Typical cheeses are mozzarella, cheddar, Colby cheddar, American cheese, etc. Cans of cheddar cheese soup are even used on occasion to cover your creation with lush flavor and texture. To construct the casserole take your meat, onion and sauce mixture and layer it in the dish. Top it off with the cheese and any other ingredients you feel would make it extra delicious, odds are you cannot do much wrong. Bread or biscuits is a great snack on the side, or conjoined. Mashed potatoes or French fries go great with it as well. You can even stack them onto the casserole if you would like.

Above all, be creative. Many add peas, corn or green beans. Some use chips crumbled on top for a delicate texture. You may even throw-in some chopped green onions or peppers of any kind, pickles, mustard, bacon, and whatever your heart desires... assuming its casserole appropriate! Topping it off with sesame seeds is yet another thing that is part of a conventional recipe. The typical temperature to cook it is about 350 degrees, varying from anywhere between half an hour to an hour and a half. You can even prepare this dish with noodles or rice. Choose flavors and additives that you and your family love and your casserole is sure to be a success!
