Hamburger is a great ingredient to use if you are looking for a frugal and filling meal. You can bring it home from the store, cook it, and place it in the freezer to save for a later meal. It saves plenty of cooking time!

These casseroles can be made ahead of time or on the same day as consumption. They also make wonderful meals for get togethers and church events. You can choose to freeze them for future dinners as well.

Simple Casserole Recipe Tips

  • Choose the correct baking dish. Small casseroles can be made in an 8×8 dish. Bigger casseroles can be made in bakeware that measures 9×13.
  • Drain your meat. Whether you are using chicken, hamburger meat, sausage, ham, or turkey, be sure to drain it properly to prevent a soggy or greasy casserole.
  • Be aware of the types of cheese and which ones are casserole friendly. Certain ones such as blue and feta aren’t made for melting. They are better off placed in the middle of the casserole versus the top.
