Hamburger Hashbrown Casserole is the perfect quick and easy dinner to throw together on a busy night. It will hit the spot!

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
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 package of hash browns
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions for Hamburger Hashbrown Casserole

  1. Brown hamburger meat.
  2. Mix cheese, soup, milk, melted butter, salt, and pepper together then add in the hash browns.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Am always trying casserole recipes. This one is definitely a KEEPER!!!! I added about 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder and a Tablespoon of Worchestershire sauce to the browned hamburger. I sprinkled about half a small can of French fried onions over the top. Soooooo very good! Thank you!

Can the casserole be frozen for later? How would you reheat it from frozen?

Reply

Naomi,

Yes, you can. For best results, you will want to thaw it prior to cooking. When you are ready to eat then just let it fully defrost in the fridge and cook according to regular recipe directions. I wouldn’t keep it longer than 2 or 3 months in the freezer though.

Package of hashbrowns? Weight, please!

Reply
Melissa April 8, 2019 - 8:31 AM

Sam, the majority of the hashbrown packages are around 20 – 26 ounces, either will work fine.

Do you use frozen hashbrowns? Or thawed? I’m making this next week and I can’t wait!

So good! Used cream of mushroom soup and also threw in a can of mushrooms and some sautéed onions with some adobo seasoning.

Anyone ever try it with green chili in it? I would think it would work but no sure.

Melissa May 29, 2019 - 10:26 AM

Annie,

We haven’t because we aren’t big into anything spicy but I bet that it would work out fine if you wanted to give it a go.

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