If you’re hungry for a hamburger alternative, try out this casserole recipe to make for dinner or a potluck gathering.
“Straight from my grandmother’s recipe collection, this hamburger casserole is ultra comforting,” says Jill Bauer, the food and lifestyle expert behind JustJill.com.
“While the name may say otherwise, it doesn’t taste exactly like your all-American burger. Instead, it has a bit of a Mexican flair thanks to the sour cream, and it pairs perfectly with crescent rolls or bread, similar to a scrumptious pasta dish,” Bauer adds.
Cook time: 20-30 minutes
