9 Layer Casserole


This casserole sounds like a lot of effort but it doesn't take as much time as you might think. You eliminate the whole browning the burger stage & you assemble this right in your baking dish so clean up is a breeze. This is great for church suppers & any pot luck event or just good family time meals. You may cut this recipe in half for your family meals but it tastes so good I always make the whole recipe! You can vary this up as you wish switching up the frozen vegetables or the soups & add any spices you might like. We love this made with the onion rings but sometimes we just want those crispy tater tots instead. On occasion I sometimes use chopped canned tomatoes instead of the soup to make a change with the recipe. I love it both ways!

2 LB. Ground Beef VERY LEAN or LEAN Turkey Burger
6 Potatoes peeled & sliced thin
4 Carrots Peeled & sliced thin
2 Onions Peeled & sliced thin
1, 15oz. Can Mushrooms drained
1LB Frozen Mixed Vegetables OR Frozen Peas Or Corn
2 Cans Cream of Celery Soup or your favorite
4 Cups Shredded Pizza Cheese OR Cheddar
1 Bag Frozen Onion Rings

Thaw burger. In a large casserole or 9x13 baking dish, layer the slice potatoes. Then layer of carrots, next onion, now spread the beef across the carrots. At this step I sprinkle seasonings over the meat, like garlic powder, onion powder or chives & parsley. Any combo of these or of your favorite spices would be good! Now spread out the frozen veggies, next the mushrooms. Spread the soup over the top, Cover with foil & bake 375 degrees for 1 hour. Remove the foil & spread the cheese over the top Then top with the Onion Rings or Tater Tots Bake another 1/2 hour, uncovered, or until the Onion Rings are browned! YUM!!!! Before you remove from the oven test with a fork to make sure your sliced potatoes are cooked soft. they should be but check to make sure!

This is a picture of the canned tomato version, where instead of the soup layer use 2 cans 15oz. chopped canned tomatoes along with the juice! SO TASTY!
