This curious-looking but delicious-tasting casserole takes only 45 minutes of baking time and about half an hour of prep. And it packs a lot of good flavor in one easy dish without breaking the bank, making it a good family-friendly meal. This casserole may look about like someone slapped a bunch of things against a pile of salty rocks, but trust me: it tastes amazing. All of that cheese really brings everything together nicely!
I went with cheddar, for a bit more of an intense cheese flavor, but I am sure that you could substitute a milder cheese if you prefer. There aren’t any super-fancy ingredients necessary, and since you are browning the ground beef before putting it into the casserole, you just use the most inexpensive grade of it that you can find and drain off the excess fat. You’ll be just fine serving this casserole by itself, though if you like, it also goes nicely with corn, green beans, or most any other simple greens.
