This photo features what a completed dish of hamburger hash brown casserole looks like.



Having a busy weekday schedule means quick-fix dinners are a must. 

If you have kids you know what I mean, but even if you don’t have kids there are plenty of nights when you don’t want to cook a full meal.

Sure we could run out and grab fast food but it’s still cheaper and better for you to cook meals at home. 

Some of the easiest and cheapest dinners are one-dish meals.

This hamburger hashbrown casserole is one of my family’s favorites.

 



Ingredients you will need:

  • 2 lbs. hamburger
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (plus extra optional)
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup (10.5 oz)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 package of hash browns (20 oz)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions for Hamburger Hash Brown Casserole

Brown hamburger meat.

Mix cheese, soup, milk, melted butter, salt, and pepper together then add in the hash browns.



Once you have all of this mixed, layer the hamburger in a 9×13 pan and then spread the mixture on top of the burger.



You can top with extra cheese if you choose at this point and then cook at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour.

Not a ground beef lover? No problem… The best thing about casseroles is that they pretty much all have a few basic ingredients.

  • the main ingredient
  • secondary ingredients
  • a starch
  • a binder
  • and a topping

The main ingredient is usually some type of protein like hamburger, chicken or tuna.

There are lots of options for a secondary ingredient, just pick your favorite vegetable.

The starch is simple enough to add potatoes, pasta or rice and a binder such as cream of chicken plus a little extra milk or water so it’s not too dry.

You can even use this basic hashbrown casserole with meat recipe and just change up the meat to your desired preference.

The last is topping it with something delicious like cheese or crackers.

A simple formula to have quick and easy meals just the way you like.

Do you use frozen hashbrowns or are they thawed?

You can use either, you will just need to cook your thawed ones a little less time than the frozen.

This sounds so yum! I want to make this tonight, but I don't have ANY type of can cream soup because I don't really care for them and my car is in the shop, so I can't buy any!! Is there anything I could sub for the soup??

Yes, you can substitute a can of cream of chicken with a cup of sour cream. It will change the flavor slightly but will still be great.

I have a question about freezing. There are two other comments and the second answer I read sort of confused me. It is obvious that the ground beef should be cooked before assembling the casserole and freezing it. Where the two answers seemed to contradict one another (in my comprehension) was whether the casserole should be fully cooked before freezing. Thus the casserole would simply be reheated. Can I complete all the steps up to placing it in the oven and then freeze it? When ready to eat it could be thawed and then cooked?

Pamela, you can freeze the dish either before you bake it or after it has come out of the oven and cooled. If you do decide to bake it first, do not bake it for the full time. Bake about 10 minutes less and allow it to cool completely before freezing. This will prevent the casserole from overcooking when you reheat it.

What size can of cream of chicken do you use? Small or large?

Melissa

Just the regular-sized smaller can, I believe it is 10.5 ozs.

I made this, except I added onion, and used cubed frozen Idaho hashbrowns. Delicious!
