While not mandatory, I strongly suggest you use the leanest ground beef you can. Even after draining the fat, you may find the end result a little too greasy. A 90/10 ratio works perfectly but if needed an 85/15 blend will work.

How to Handle Raw Beef

  • Thaw frozen ground beef on a plate on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator, to avoid dripping onto other foods.
  • Keep raw and ready-to-eat meats separate.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after handling raw ground beef. Wash cutting boards, bowls, and utensils used to prepare raw ground beef with hot soapy water and rinse well.
  • Use separate plates to carry raw ground beef patties to the cooking area and cooked patties to the serving area.
  • Use a Thermometer to ensure Ground Beef Reaches the Safely Cooked Internal Temperature of 160°F.

My Mac and Cheeseburger and my Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Bake are a couple of other great dishes packed full of cheesy goodness.

Tips

  • If you like your french fries extra crispy I suggest you bake them separately ahead of time – around 20 minutes – before adding them to the casserole. This will give them a little extra bake time without drying out the ground beef.

    This cheeseburger and fries casserole is really great. Very tasty and my kids loved it. The soups make all the difference and keeps the casserole moist and very flavourful.
