This gluten-free Cheeseburger Casserole is very easy to make and it’s big on taste, too! And, my family thinks it’s terrific!
The ingredients used in this recipe are staples in my kitchen so I can almost always make this in a pinch.
The simple seasonings can be whatever I like on my cheeseburger – for example, sometimes I like garlic and Worcestershire on my burger, and sometimes I don’t. Onion is one of my favorites with this combination, but it is optional, too.
I don’t often order cheeseburgers when I eat out – I didn’t before went I gluten-free, either – but I like them cooked at home. Since by comparison to a regular cheeseburger this casserole is lower in fat, I’ve enjoyed it at home fairly often.
I was inspired to make this casserole after cooking The Gluten-Free Homemaker’s recipe for Cheeseburger Fries. That was a delicious meal that used frozen French fries and it was a hit in my home!
Made with boiled potatoes, this gluten-free casserole is a dinner my family likes a lot. I’ve also taken it for a pot luck dish where it was a big hit, too, especially with younger people.
It’s an easy casserole to assemble and carry without a lot of fuss or spilling.
I hope you enjoy it!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Makes 2 – 4 servings
- 4 cups of cooked, cubed potatoes (more or less) – I peeled about 2 ½ pounds of Idaho potatoes
- 1/2 Pound Lean Ground Beef, cooked and drained
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- ½ Teaspoon Minced Garlic, optional
- ¼ Cup Onion, Chopped, optional
- 1 Teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, gluten-free like Lea & Perrins to taste, optional
- 1-2 Cups (4-8 Ounces) American or Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
- Ketchup for serving
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Oil an 8×8-inch casserole dish.
Cook the potatoes in boiling water and drain. Spread the potatoes in the casserole dish.
Meanwhile, cook the meat in a skillet and drain.
Stir the salt and pepper into the meat, and also the optional garlic, onion and Worcestershire sauce if you are using them.
Spread the meat mixture over the potatoes.
Sprinkle the cheese over the meat.
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
