There is a lot more involved in making this video’s cheeseburger than in today’s recipe. Could use a pickle garnish, too. :)
I always feel like there is something inherently wrong about using canned soup in a casserole. But, I have to be honest that sometimes the result is the homiest, most welcoming meal.
Like this Cheeseburger And Fries Casserole. With just 4 main ingredients and about 10 minutes prep, not only is the casserole delicious, but it’s wicked easy to make.
I shared another recipe for Cheeseburger And Fries Casserole about a year ago, but I think I like this one a bit better. The golden mushroom soup has tomato in it and a much richer flavor than regular cream of mushroom. I also loved the idea of garnishing with the pickle slices. It really tasted like a cheeseburger on a plate.
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed golden mushroom soup
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cheddar cheese soup
1 (20 ounce) package frozen, fried crinkle-cut potatoes
Cheeseburger toppings such as ketchup, pickles and mustard
1. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef until browned. Drain off fat. Place the cooked meat in the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the condensed golden mushroom soup and the condensed cheddar cheese soup. Spread over the meat in the casserole.
3. Sprinkle the frozen crinkle-cut potatoes over the top of the casserole.
4. Bake in a 350℉ oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until the fries are golden.
5. Garnish with suggested toppings, if you like.

I heard this absolutely gorgeous song this morning. It is on the Song, By Toad Records 2013 Sampler and I have been meaning to share it with your for awhile.
It somehow doesn’t feel right to pair up a song as elegant as ‘Golden Circle’ with such a basic casserole.
But, you know what?
They are both so good they somehow belong together.
