If you are looking for an easy, cheap weeknight meal for your family you will love this Extra Cheesy Cheeseburger Casserole. Last year I shared the recipe for this Hamburger Casserole which is one of my family’s favorite dinners. It is definitely the most requested meal at my house.
Last week I made this recipe but I “kicked it up a notch” as Emeril would say. This version has two layers of cheese which makes it extra cheesy.
This recipe served 4 adults. If you need to feed a bigger crowd you can easily increase the recipe. For this version I used an 8×8 Pyrex baking dish. If you need to increase your recipe you will need to use a bigger baking dish.
2 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, finely diced
1/2 cup diced dill pickles or dill pickle relish
1 Cup Ketchup
1/4 Cup Yellow Mustard
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
10 slices American cheese
1 Can Crescent Rolls (8 rolls)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown ground beef with diced onions, drain.
Remove from heat. Add pickles, ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise. Mix well.
In a greased 8×8 casserole dish, arrange 4 crescent rolls. Pinch the seams together and push the dough so that it covers the entire bottom of the dish.
Layer with 5 slices of American Cheese.
Add the ground beef mixture.
Layer with another 5 slices of American Cheese.
Arrange the remaining 4 crescent rolls on top of the cheese. I used a fork to poke a few holes in the top of the dough to allow the cheese to melt and release steam.
You can add sesame seeds to the top of the dish if you’d like. In the past year I learned that I am allergic to sesame seeds so I had to leave off the sesame seeds this time.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until the top layer is golden brown.
Allow to cool. Serve and enjoy!
