How do you make cheeseburger casserole?

  • This recipes starts with cooking bacon until it’s nice and crisp.
  • Once the bacon is cooked, set aside and use the same skillet to cook the ground beef, onion, seasonings and then rice.
  • Remove from heat and add ketchup, mustard, Greek yogurt, egg whites and cheese. Stir until fully combined and transfer to baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
  • Top casserole with crumbled bacon and 1/2 cup shredded cheese, if using.
  • Bake the casserole until it’s bubbling and the cheese is melted, then serve with your favorite cheeseburger toppings.

Cheeseburger Casserole Toppings:

  • Top cheeseburger casserole with your favorite burger fixings such as shredded lettuce, tomato, pickles, bacon, red onion, avocado and/or burger sauce. The options are endless!

Make Ahead:

  • You can assemble the casserole up to 8 hour before you plan to bake it. Store it covered in the refrigerator until you’re ready to put it in the oven. You may need to increase the cooking time to compensate for starting with a cold casserole.

Storing Leftovers:

  • Leftovers should be refrigerated in an airtight container and are best if used within 4 to 5 days.
  • Reheat in a microwave or an oven heated to 350°F until warmed through.

Tip: Leftover cheeseburger casserole is delicious as a dip with chips or as a filling for burritos and crunch wraps!

Freezing:

  • Baked cheeseburger casserole freezes well and can be stored for up to 3 months.
  • To enjoy after freezing, let it defrost overnight and reheat in a microwave or an oven heated to 350°F until warmed through.
