Hi, there everyone! I am completely in love with this hamburger casserole. I have quite a few burger casseroles floating around my recipe box but this one takes the cake…er…casserole. It’s simple to make and easy to eat! Perfect for a weeknight meal. My husband and kids really like this version of hamburger casserole and claim that it tastes a lot like pizza casserole. I guess I can understand that comparison as there is tomato sauce, cheese, and burger in the mix.
If you are looking for a weeknight meal that is truly easy to whip up and will feed your family’s hungry bellies, look no further. This hamburger casserole is definitely the ticket. I love how simple it is to make and what a nice, hot, and bubbly casserole that comes out of the oven in no time flat. When I make hamburger casserole I usually make it with a side salad with ranch dressing. Although, my middle son prefers his salad with Italian dressing. To each his own, right? Enjoy!
If you like hamburger and cheese you will really enjoy this yummy casserole! It’s like eating a pizza burger in baking dish form.
This is a lot like pizza. My mother-in-law gave this recipe to me when I first married my husband. (13 years ago) She told me this was his favorite as a kid and he always asked for it when he came home to see her. I have made a few changes, but it is still pretty much the same recipe she gave me. My kids love this as well, and it is now a favorite for my own family!
My kids love this yummy hamburger casserole and I’m pretty sure yours will, too.
- 1lb. hamburger (I actually will make more than 1 pound, because my husband likes it with extra hamburger!)
- ¼ onion, chopped
- 1 can Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits
- 1 can Hunt’s tomato sauce
- 1 can Pennsylvania Dutch sliced mushrooms
- 1 can Hunt’s diced tomatoes
- Pearl diced black olives
- Kraft shredded cheese
In large skillet, cook hamburger and onions until hamburger is no longer pink. Set aside.
In a baking dish, press biscuits into bottom of dish, forming the bottom crust.
Spread tomato sauce over biscuits. Spread hamburger, mushrooms, black olives and tomatoes over tomato sauce then sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at temperature shown on biscuit can. Bake for 5-10 minutes longer than biscuit can says, or until biscuits are cooked through. (be careful not to burn bottom of biscuits!)
Note: Pepperoni, Canadian bacon or sausage can be substituted for the hamburger!
