Cheesy Ground Beef Casserole

IMG_9699
I needed to find something quick and easy for dinner, that used what I had on hand, as we were headed out of town, and didn’t want to have to go to the grocery store.   I also wanted to use up some of the many pounds of ground beef we have sitting in our freezer.  This dish looked perfect!  I smelled a bit like a beef stroganoff, due to the onions, garlic and sour cream.  It was fairly decent for a casserole, one dish meal.  I think next time I would mix the sour cream/cheese mixture, into the dish, and bake the last 15 minutes.  It was good though.
Serves 6-8 for about $0.90/serving
INGREDIENTS:

  1. HI,

    Question: We don’t drain the ground beef?

    Thanks!

      Jackie, good question! Normally yes, you would want to drain your beef before adding the other ingredients. We have been using beef from a grass fed cow we purchased, and it has very little fat content. So yes, if there is extra grease, please drain first.
