I am the type of girl that LOVES a juicy and cheesy cheeseburger! Better with a side of fries! When I got the opportunity to work with Sargento® Sliced Cheese I knew that I wanted to use the cheese into a Potato Mushroom Cheeseburger Casserole that is covered in delicious, melty cheese.
Pasteurized Process Cheese Food (PPCF), sometimes known as American singles, is only required to contain 51% real cheese! However, Sargento® Slices are always 100% real, natural cheese and you can taste the difference.
You can see and taste the difference in quality, the cheese is so fresh, it tastes like it was just sliced and served! It melts beautifully and it’s absolutely delicious. I used Swiss and Cheddar slices in this cheeseburger casserole and it turned out delicious.
I can’t have a cheeseburger without the fries, so I obviously incorporated potatoes into my casserole, which made the dish naturally Gluten Free! This delicious cheeseburger casserole consists of layers of sliced baked potatoes, cheese and juicy ground beef cooked with caramelized mushrooms and onions.
- 1 lb ground beef, organic and grass fed
- ⅓ cup canola oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 10 ounces baby bella mushrooms, chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1½ teaspoons salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 7 ounces Sargento® Sliced Swiss Natural Cheese
- 7 ounces Sargento® Sliced Cheddar Natural Cheese
- 4 medium Yukon potatoes, peeled and cut into thin rondelles
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Add canola oil to a large, hot skillet. Add the chopped onions and mushrooms, cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- Add the ground beef and cook over medium heat, stirring to break up the lumps, until all of the pink is gone from the meat.
- Add oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat and set aside.
- Layer half the potatoes onto the bottom of a baking dish that you have sprayed with cooking spray. Top with cheese, followed by the beef mixture.
- Toss the remaining potatoes into some oil and arrange them on top of the beef layer.
- Bake for about 20 minutes, top with cheese slices and bake for another 25-30 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked thoroughly.
- Serve and refrigerate the leftovers!
