Ingredients for easy hamburger potato casserole:
- 5 small potatoes
- 2 lbs of ground beef, browned
- 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
- 1 ½ cups of milk
- 1 ½ cups of shredded cheese (we used a colby jack mix, but cheddar would be great too)
How to make hamburger casserole:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown your ground beef and set aside
Peel and slice potatoes and set aside. We use this easy mandoline slicer to cut our potatoes quickly.
In a mixing bowl, combine cream of mushroom soup, milk, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Set aside.
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non stick spray.
Layer in the pan, potatoes, beef, soup, and cheese. Then repeat. Top with remaining cheese.
Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour
Remover foil and bake another 30 minutes until potatoes are fork tender.
Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, then cut and serve.
This hamburger potato casserole is easy to make and tastes great. You can easily assemble this ahead of time and then place in the oven when you are ready to eat.
What to serve with hamburger meat casserole:
I personally like to serve it with a side salad because that makes dinner done with no extra work. However, steamed broccoli (see how to steam broccoli in the microwave easily) would also be amazing without any extra work.
Green beans also taste great and make a simple side dish as well. This meal is also good with asparagus.
This oven roasted asparagus is a family favorite and it is very simple and quick to make.
Just keep it simple.
How to freeze this hamburger potato casserole:
Now this is an easy freezer meal. However, raw potatoes don’t freeze that great, so I suggest you replace the potatoes with a package of frozen hash browns.
Layer just like you would with the hash browns. Cover with foil and freeze.
Then allow it to thaw in your refrigerator overnight and cook according to directions above. If it is still frozen in the middle cook with it covered for 1 ½ hours and then 30 minutes uncovered.
