Cheeseburger Casserole Recipe

Cheeseburger casseroleWe know that we all have at least one night when schedules are hectic. No matter what we do to stay organized everything goes haywire, the kids are attending an event, a family member is in the hospital, the spouse is leaving on a business trip. We like to keep some “go to” meal ingredients on hand so that we can fix dinner quickly and not loose our minds in the process. I don’t know about you but I do not choose to take time out on a chaotic night to coax the kids to eat something new or something that they really do not care for. So this is one of those meals that is easy to prepare no matter what the circumstances and is kid approved. So the next time the kids have youth group, there is a soccer game or  a family member is in the hospital, just pull out these ingredients and keep the family fed for with little time and money. From our kitchen to yours..enjoy!
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 (28 oz) can chopped tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 oz wide egg noodles
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat, stirring to break up the lumps, until all of the pink is gone from the meat. Drain off the fat. Add the onion and the green pepper, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, with juice, and the Worcestershire sauce, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to low. Simmer the mixture for about 15 minutes.
2. Fill medium pot half full of water. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Bring the water to a boil. Stir in the noodles and boil for about 8 minutes, until tender. Drain the noodles, return the noodles to the pot. Pour the tomato mixture over the noodles and stir until blended.
3. Put the noodle mixture into a baking dish that you have sprayed with cooking spray. Top with cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Enjoy it as a family meal, then refrigerate the leftovers.
