This is my favorite hamburger casserole. I like to serve it over the top of garlic mashed potatoes. Don't let it's unusual ingredients stop you from trying this--it is wonderful!

This was easy & delicious!! It did seem weird to use coleslaw mix, but that's exactly what I did - one bag Dole Classic Coleslaw. I had a shredded cheese blend on hand so I used that. DH went for seconds!! The only thing I had to change was the casserole dish size. Couldn't fit all this good stuff in a 2-quart, so had to use a 3. This one goes in my "keeper" book for busy-night suppers. Thanks - MG!!

I thought this was very good, but my husband and sons didn't care for it. I added 8 oz. of mushrooms (just because they needed to be used). I thought the coleslaw mix added a great texture to this dish. I think I would cook at a lower temperature or less time if I made it again as the hamburg got a little dried out.
