I make this quite often at my house and it's always a BIG hit! There are 9 people that live here and 5 of them are children who just love this! I usually will double all the ingredients except the meat and make 2 casseroles very cheap! =) I hope you enjoy my concoction of burgery goodness as much as my kids do!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This easy casserole recipe was like a cheeseburger deluxe. We love the super cheesiness of the dish and found ourselves going back for seconds and thirds. It'll be a huge hit with kids (it's so easy to make they can help in the kitchen). It has all the flavors of cheeseburgers with the bread being nicely toasted just right. So good!

How To Make "cheeseburger" casserole

  • Brushing butter onto the bread.
    1
    Pre-Heat the oven to 440 degrees. Butter your 6 slices of bread.
  • All slices of bread in the baking pan.
    2
    Put them butter-side down in an ungreased baking dish. (I use the long Pyrex dish.)
  • Sprinkling bread with cheese.
    3
    Sprinkle 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese over the bread.
  • Preparing the mac and cheese.
    4
    Prepare the box of mac 'n' cheese per package directions. During this time you can also start on the meat.
  • Beef ingredients in a skillet.
    5
    Combine all the "Ingredients mixed with meat" in a large skillet.
  • Browning the beef.
    6
    Brown the meat until it is almost done. There should still be a few pieces of meat that are not cooked all the way. (Don't worry, they will cook the rest of the way in the oven.)
  • Pouring mac and cheese into the dish.
    7
    Now the mac 'n' cheese should be done and needs to be poured onto the cheesed bread.
  • Ground beef poured on top of the mac and cheese.
    8
    Then pour the meat onto the mac 'n' cheese.
  • Cheese sprinkled on top.
    9
    Sprinkle the other cup of shredded cheese on top of the meat.
  • Onions and pickles sprinkled on top.
    10
    Then sprinkle the pickles and onions on top.
  • Ketchup squirted on top.
    11
    Last you get your ketchup bottle and squeeze "zig-zags" of ketchup on top of the casserole.
  • Cheeseburger Casserole baking in the oven.
    12
    Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is all melted and the meat is all done.
