Kid's Favorite Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by SharleneW

This is one of my children's favorite meals. It has protein, vegetable and starch so I'm happy too. Easy to prepare and can be frozen for make-ahead cooking.

Kid's Fav is right! It's great and a classic, never met a kid yet who didn't like it. When my kids were kids we made this and called it Hamburger Surprise 'cause the veggie was whatever was handy. Now they are having this for supper with their kids; so good things last forever. Thanks for the memories!
