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

  • 1NOTE: In place of the hamburger, green pepper & onion & seasonings, my Mom would sometimes use some leftover from "Mom-Mom's Hamburger Stew" (in my recipe files) It's delicious either way!
  • 2Brown the ground beef, & saute the pepper & onion with the seasonings until veggies are soft. Drain.
  • 3Cook the macaroni until al dente. Drain.
  • 4Spray a large casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • 5Add 1/2 of the macaroni, then 1/2 of the ground beef, then 1 can stewed tomatoes & then 1/2 of the shredded cheese.
  • 6Repeat layers, starting with macaroni and ending with cheese, adding a little more on top, if desired.
    *Note: In place of the 2nd can of tomatoes, you can substitute 1 jar of salsa
  • 7Bake 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.
