Cheeseburger Casserole

This cheeseburger casserole is delicious, in a delightfully non-gourmet sort of way. Grownups and kids alike loved it when I served it tonight, and the younger one – the picky eater- even asked for seconds!

To balance out the richness of this dish, skip the starches and serve it with a veggie, such as simple boiled green beans, roasetd asparagus or a big salad.
