Need a convenient weeknight meal that kids are sure to enjoy too? This cheeseburger casserole is super easy to put together and is a crowd pleaser at our house! Big Brother’s favorite thing is cheeseburgers and a certain Baby Brother loves french fries, so this was a great flavor combination all in one dish! The best part is that this came together really quickly–almost a one pan dish! And, this would also make a great freezer meal! The Ore-Ida® French Fries are frozen anyway. So, you could prep everything for the casserole and freeze. Then, just bake and top with the fresh ingredients! It doesn’t get easier or more convenient than that! Here’s the recipe:
- 2 pounds lean ground beef we used 93%
- 1/4 Cup sweet onion finely chopped
- 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
- 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
- 2 TBSP yellow mustard
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 approx 2lb. bag Ore-Ida® Golden Crinkles®
- 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
- diced tomatoes
- diced dill pickles
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a pan on the stove, brown ground beef and onions with worcestershire sauce. Once cooked through, add tomato sauce, mustard and garlic powder. Stir until combined.
- Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray and pour the meat mixture into the pan. Spread into an even layer.
- Lightly sprinkle with meat mixture with some of the cheese.
- Top with Golden Crinkles®, spread into an even layer.
- Top with the remaining cheese (add a little more if you like it cheesy).
- Bake at 400 for about 25 minutes (or until cheese is melted & fries become golden brown).
- Remove from oven and top casserole with diced fresh tomatoes and pickles
Yum! This casserole is so great for an easy weeknight meal!

A variation (probably healthier )of a family favorite since the boys where teens! Mine used a can of golden mushroom soup and cheddar cheese soup mixed with the burger. Topped with fries, baked and catsup, mustard and pickle added at the table.
I think this would be wonderful to take to a potluck too. It has everything there and no need for all the little items to make the dish. Thanks for sharing. I have not seen this before. Who doesn’t like hamburgers and fries too!!!
We tried this tonight and sadly, it isn’t a keeper. I made it as written, and it wasn’t very flavorful. Also, the French fries didn’t crisp like they would if they didn’t have a layer of meat under them good idea, but didn’t work well. Oh, well. If you don’t try new things, you never learn!
Hi Sara! Sorry it wasn’t for you! My family loved it, but recipes definitely are tricky to please everyone with so many different palates out there.
