Hamburger Casserole

When I was a kid my mom and I put this recipe together. It's kind of a spin off of Hobo Dinner but made into a casserole instead.


  • 1-2 lbs. hamburger
  • 1-2 medium onion, sliced
  • veggie(s) of you or your families liking (any amounts you of whatever you want or have on hand can be used.)
  • Advertisement

  • Potatoes, peeled and sliced (again there's not any certain amount needed or required here. Just however much you care to use or have on hand.)
  • Salt and pepper to taste, and /or whatever other seasoning(s) you like. I like to use onion powder on mine, because we like the flavor it gives. And I season each layer too.


Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Now choose whatever size of baking or casserole dish you care to make and spray the dish with pan spray.

Put the hamburger in the bottom, season it with salt and pepper and whatever seasoning of your choice. Put the sliced onion over the beef and season it also. Put the veggie of your choosing over the sliced onions. Now place a layer of sliced potatoes over the veggie(s); salt and pepper and use any other seasoning(s) of your choice.


Add as many layers or as many potatoes you want too. I like my potatoes here, so I usually put on about 2-3 layers. Make sure to season each layer. And if you like onion, you can also add more sliced onion between the potato layers if you want to. There's no certain amount of anything here. Just put however or whatever amount you want.

Bake it covered at 350 degrees F for about 1-1/2 hours, until the potatoes are tender. This is really handy to have made up and already baked, and cooled. Put in the freezer for those unexpected visitors or just a lazy night dinner, or if you just don't know what to make. My mom and I loved it. Enjoy!

Servings: 2-4 people
Prep Time: 30 minutes Minutes
Cooking Time: 1-1/2hrs Minutes

Source: I'm in my fifties now, but this recipe my mom and I put together when I was growing up, one night when we wanted everything all in one dish. This has been a favorite in my family for a lot of years now. And I hope others will enjoy too.

This is the craziest recipe I've ever read! Just throw whatever you like in any dish or pot you like and throw it in the oven! How creative!

Are you supposed to cook the hamburger first or put it in raw. Depending on what fat content you use, this could be a very fatty meal. But it does sound interesting.

I have been kingmaker a dish like this for years I called it cleaning out the fridge day when you have a little of everything to do something with the more veggies the better it taste, the slow cooking makes it extra good.
