  • Well this may be too similar but here a simple recipe for hamburger casserole

    Slice a layer of potatoes in bottom of dish, put layer of cooked hamburger meat over that. Mix can crm of mushroom soup and water, pour over top of hamburger, layer of shredded cheese, then layer of crumbled saltine crackers. Bake til potatoes done which usually takes an hour for me. My SO loves it.

  • Tater tot cassserole is yummy. Take hamburger and press it into a pan, bake for 20 min...pull it back out and layer it with tatertots, pour cream of mushroom soup over the top, top with cheese and stick back into the oven. Bake for however long the bag of tatertots says.

  • ha ha summer it is like sloppy joes but instead of using sloppy joe sauce you use cream of chicken or cream or celery soup. mix that in with the hamburger then add some velveeta. we eat it on buns like sloppy joes or i make mashed potatoes and put it on top of the potatoes.

  • , for about 20 minutes, or until thickened. Add cheese; stir until cheese is melted. Set filling aside.
    In a saucepan, combine cornmeal, salt, water and chili powder. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Stir in butter. Spread half of the mixture into a baking dish, about 12- x 8-inches. Spoon filling over bottom crust; spoon remaining cornmeal mixture over filling. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes. If desired, sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over the crust about 5 minutes before casserole is done.
