French Fry Casserole


This recipe is from my friend Joan. This is one of her go-to weeknight meals. It is super easy to make and her kids love it. We love burgers and fries at our house, so I gave it a try. YUM! I love that the fries are baked right on top of the cheesy burger mixture (one less dish to clean). I put the casserole under the broiler for a few minutes after it was baked so the fries would be extra crispy. We topped our casserole with some burger toppings – pickles, ketchup and mustard. I tried some of the casserole topped with Ranch dressing – also very tasty! Many thanks to Joan for sharing this wonderful weeknight meal with us!



French Fry Casserole
serves 8
(Printable Recipe)


2 lb ground beef
salt
pepper
2 cans Cheddar Cheese soup
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp mustard
1 package (26oz) golden crinkle fries
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350.

 In a large skillet cook the ground beef until no longer pink. Drain the fat and mix in cheddar cheese soup, ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour into a lightly sprayed 9x13-inch pan. Top meat mixture with french fries. Try to get them as close to a single layer as possible. Top fries with cheese.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Broil for 1-2 minutes, until fries are crispy.

  1. I have a variation of this on the menu for next week! Fingers crossed that my kids will eat it...so picky! I made your Doritos Taco Bake last night, and it was a hit. Thanks!

  2. So is this what the chefs called a decomposed cheeseburger with fries?

  5. I would use onion, garlic and cumin in the ground beef. And added grated sharp cheddar cheese to the soup (which I would heat in the microwave before Adding to the meat. Hmmmm..... And I would have lined the baking dish with pickled jalapeños! Also, I would browned the fries deeply and then sprinkled cheese to be boiled to perfection! I can't wait to try it.

  7. So you just put the frozen fries on the hamburger mixture? And you don't flip them or anything during cooking? They don't end up soggy? This looks so good!

  8. kash18 - yes, put the frozen fries on the hamburger mixture. Don't flip them. They aren't soggy. I did pop them under the broiler for a few minutes, but that isn't necessary. Enjoy!
