This was a favorite of my Dad's, and I love it too! My Dad graduated to Heaven in 2005, so whenever I make this I think of him!

Enjoy!

How to Make Mom-Mom's Cheeseburger Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. NOTE: In place of the hamburger, green pepper & onion & seasonings, my Mom would sometimes use some leftover from "Mom-Mom's Hamburger Stew" (see recipe) It's delicious either way!
  2. Brown the ground beef, & saute the pepper & onion with the seasonings until veggies are soft. Drain.
  3. Cook the macaroni until al dente. Drain.
  4. Spray a large casserole dish with cooking spray.
  5. Add 1/2 of the macaroni, then 1/2 of the ground beef, then 1 can stewed tomatoes & then 1/2 of the shredded cheese.
  6. Repeat layers, starting with macaroni and ending with cheese, adding a little more on top, if desired.
  7. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, or until golden brown on top and bubbly.
  8. ** This freezes well! I sometimes divide this recipe between two 8x8 square, or 9-inch round, disposable foil pans giving me one meal to freeze for later.
