Yes, I am the queen of the casserole! It’s because I grew up on them, and so to me, they really are comfort food! When I found this classic favorite in my recipe box, I knew I had to give it a real food makeover! I used to make it all the time because it was so good! I think you will enjoy it as much as I do!
When it comes to finding meals that are easy to fix and that work well for families who are active, casseroles really fit the bill nicely. This cheesy ground beef casserole recipe is a cleaned-up version of a recipe that I’ve had in my recipe box for a long time. I really like a lot and so I wanted to give it an update. I don’t even remember where it came from, but it is definitely a winner in my house. I’ve adapted it so that it is as whole food as possible and I think it’s even yummier now than the original version is.
Use our simple recipe for cream of mushroom soup with this casserole. Doing that will give you a casserole that is msg and preservative-free! This cream of mushroom soup can easily be made in large batches and frozen for easy use. Just pull one out of the freezer and thaw!
Good and gluten-free!
This recipe is gluten-free when using a gluten-free cream of mushroom soup. If you make your own cream of mushroom soup and make it grain-free like I do, then this casserole can be grain-free as well!! Woo hoo!!
This casserole just reminds me so much of being a kid that I usually have some homemade applesauce with it. That also reminds me of being a kid….and since I’m really a big kid at heart, why not!
This recipe can also be done in the slow cooker making it even easier!
