This recipe makes a very delicious ground beef casserole, and a tasty supper. Add a salad and garlic bread for a full meal. This recipe came in a church cookbook, and my family really enjoys this one!

This had a beautiful golden crust when it came out of the oven. I did increase the cooking time about 7-8 minutes. The crusty top was a nice contrast to the rest of the dish. This was easy to make and good, but for our tastes, something was missing. I thought perhaps adding some mushrooms would enhance this dish. My husband thinks adding some diced celery for a little texture would be a nice addition. All in all a good weeknight meal that has potential to be so much more! I think we will play around with this one a bit. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 08.
