Easy Ground Beef Casserole Recipes

At the end of a long day when you’re tired and stressed there’s nothing like comfort food to bring the smile back to your face right?

And you don’t have to pick up the phone and call for takeout, because there is nothing easier to cook than a casserole. Seriously all you have to do is throw everything into a casserole dish and pop it in the oven!

Casseroles don’t have to be boring either. You could eat casserole every night and just by mixing up the ingredients you can create a whole new dish.

Today we’re sharing 22 easy ground beef casserole recipes just to prove it to you!

Oh and if you’re on a budget you might be tempted to pick up the cheaper, less lean ground beef at the store and just drain off the fat. It’s not going to taste as good though, and you won’t be doing your heart or cholesterol levels any favours!

Instead you’re much better off buying boneless sirloin steaks or London broil and grinding it yourself at home.

You can save yourself time later in the month if you make a larger casserole than you actually need and freeze the leftovers.
