It started with a recipe from a home cookbook that was eh... ok. My husband liked it enough for me to make it I've been making it about Once a week and changing it here and tweaking it there... Well, I think I finally hit the recipe I think is worthy to share. I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think of it. Enjoy!

The prep work is a little labor intensive, but the end results are worth it. And it keeps well for reheating.

How to Make Hamburger Veggie Cassarole


  1. grease a large baking dish (9 X 15) spread the sliced potatoes in a thin layer around the bottom of the pan then sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper
  2. spread the carrot slices on top of seasoned Potatoes, followed by celery, bell pepper, and top with the onion rings. Sprinkle with tarragon, paprika, and garlic powder
  3. In a large sauce pan, brown your ground beef with the dried minced onion, garlic powder, salt, and cumin till beef is no longer pink. Drain well.
  4. return meat to the pan then pour in the salsa and spaghetti sauce... and add enough water to make the mixture kind of soupy. Taste to check level of seasoning. Adjust if necessary then pour on top of the vegetables - spreading it so it covers the top
  5. bake uncovered for 1 hour at 375, then lower heat to 300 for the next 15 minutes.
  6. * If you want, you can top the cassarole with buttered breadcrumbs before baking... tastes good either way.
