Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Ground Beef: Ground beef gives the best burger taste, but you can use ground turkey as well.
Ketchup: You can’t have a ‘burger’ without ketchup. I like just a little bit of ketchup with my casserole.
Seasoning– Onion powder and garlic powder give the best flavor to the casserole. You will also be adding black pepper.
Cheddar Cheese: Cheddar Cheese is my go-to for burger anything! But, you can use other kinds of cheese that you have on hand.
Biscuits: Use premade, or boxed biscuit mix. I like to use Grands brand for this recipe.
Salted Butter: Using salted butter will bring out the flavors in the recipe as well as add additional flavor.
How To Make Cheeseburger Casserole
Step 1. Set the oven to 425 degrees and use baking spray to grease a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish. In a large pan, add the ground beef and cook on medium-high heat. Break up the meat as it cooks and heat until there is no pink visible. Remove any excess grease.
Step 2. Put in the ketchup, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and 2 cups of shredded cheese and mix to combine. Put the mixture into the prepared casserole dish and evenly spread. Top with a cup of cheese.
Step 3. Pull apart the biscuits so that you have two halves and arrange them on top of the cheese. You should be able to fit about 12 biscuits on top. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and fully cooked.
Step 4. Use a brush to add some melted butter on top of the biscuits and enjoy!
