Cheesy Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole

Cheesy Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole is the ultimate comfort food, combining all the best elements of a classic cheeseburger and fries in one delicious, easy-to-make dish. Perfect for family dinners, potlucks, or casual gatherings, this hearty casserole is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

To create this mouthwatering casserole, start by preheating your oven and greasing a baking dish. Begin by browning ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking it up into small crumbles as it cooks. Season the beef with salt, pepper, and your favorite burger seasonings, such as garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Once the beef is cooked through, drain any excess fat.

Next, add diced onions and minced garlic to the skillet with the beef and cook until the onions are soft and translucent. Stir in ketchup, mustard, and a splash of Worcestershire sauce, creating a flavorful beef mixture that tastes just like a cheeseburger.

In the prepared baking dish, spread the beef mixture evenly across the bottom. Top the beef with a layer of shredded cheddar cheese, ensuring it’s well-covered for that gooey, cheesy goodness. For an extra layer of flavor, you can also add a layer of pickles or crispy bacon bits.

Now, it’s time to add the fries. You can use frozen crinkle-cut fries, shoestring fries, or even tater tots. Arrange them in a single layer over the cheese, covering the entire casserole. This will create a crispy, golden topping that’s reminiscent of classic fries.

Bake the casserole in the preheated oven until the fries are crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbly. This usually takes about 25-30 minutes, but keep an eye on it to prevent overcooking.

Once the casserole is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and a drizzle of ketchup or mustard for that authentic cheeseburger experience.

Serve this Cheesy Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole with a side of pickles or a simple green salad to balance out the richness. With its layers of seasoned beef, melty cheese, and crispy fries, this casserole is sure to become a new family favorite that’s requested time and time again.
