Granny's Hamburger Casserole

A family favorite with simple, filling ingredients to make the ultimate comfort food.

Do you have that one family recipe that just makes you happy? It may have a funny name or special ingredient, but it's a family staple everyone loves. Comfort food, good for filling bellies and hearts!

This is one of those recipes. I think what is unique about these kinds of family recipes is the memories attached to them. That's what makes them special. Yes the food is good, but the love and memories are what makes them a family favorite.

I remember cold winter days, coming in from feeding hay, and filling up on Granny's casserole and cornbread. I remember my dad and grandad chopping wood, and stopping for lunch, to eat this out of a thermos on the tailgate.

Food does not have to be fancy to be good.

My Granny was one of a kind. But aren't they all? ❤️ Raised in the Depression, she could make a meal out of anything. What she made was simple, delicious, and filling. Just like this casserole, we don't even have a clever name, but simply Granny's casserole. And the older I get, the more I realize food doesn't have to be fancy to be good.

I'm sure there are many variations of this casseroles, and that is what makes it great! You can add in whatever you like!
