This ground beef au gratin takes the cheesiness of au gratin potatoes and makes it a meal!

This is another dish that was born out of necessity. I had all of the ingredients to make Au gratin potatoes with ham….except the ham and needed an easy and tasty dinner idea that I could do with ingredients that I had on hand. Well, I have plenty of grass-fed ground beef in the freezer, so I figured…”why not?”

It was pretty easy to figure out that it wasn’t going to taste yucky. And it made a nice cheesy casserole that was nice and filling. This is definitely a recipe that I will add to our fall and winter recipe rotation!
