Cheesy Beef Casserole

Dad’s best friend after working late is a box of Hamburger Helper.  Kids will always tolerate a night of creamy cheesy goodness, especiially if they have been able to pick the flavors.  But what do you do if you promise them Hamburger Helper, only to find out you don’t have any!  Yikes.  Never fear.  You can quell the impending rebellion and maybe even earn yourself some kudos with this easy hamburger casserole.  It take a bit longer than Hamburger Helper, but hey, it’s homemade!  This casserole is not “juicy” on the inside, with the noodles on top a bit crispy.  If you don’t like it this way, ass another 4 ounces of tomato sauce or cut your noodles back to 2 cups or so.  The kids liked it just the way it is.


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tbs. Worcestershite sauce
  • 8 oz. egg noodles
  • 2 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups colby jack or cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Salt and pepper
  • Garlic salt
  • Oregano


  1. Cook the egg noodles for about 6 minutes (they will finish cooking in process)
  2. While the noodles cook, brown the ground beef and onion in a large skillet.  Preheat oven to 350°
  3. Drain the noodles and place in skillet
  4. Add tomato sauce, worcestershire sauce, and seasonings to taste
  5. Bring to simmer for 3-4 minutes
  6. Turn into a casserole dish and spread cheese over top.
  7. Cook for 30 minutes and serve.
