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 with sides.

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 and we are certainly a fan of them in our family.



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, thawed)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions for making Hamburger Hash Brown Casserole

First, you want to start off by browning your hamburger meat.


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



Once you have all of this throughly mixed, layer the browned hamburger in a 9×13 pan and 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.



I will be honest when I say the dish doesn’t look fancy and is quite hard to photograph but it is certainly a tasty one that you won’t want to miss out on trying.



Not a ground beef lover? No problem… The best thing about casseroles, in general, 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, pick something like potatoes, pasta or rice and choose 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 think it would be good with cheddar cheese soup instead of cream of chicken

Melissa

Barbara, I have never had cheddar cheese soup so I couldn't really say for sure but sometimes you just have to try it and see how it goes. If you decide to let me know how it turns out.

Melissa

Yes, I typically use a package of simply potatoes hashbrowns as they are already thawed.

Do you use frozen hashbrowns or are they thawed?

Melissa

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