This Cheeseburger French Fry Casserole is a one pan meal packed with flavor! Beef, cheese, a ketchup/mustard sauce, and fries…comfort food at its finest!
Don’t you just love a good casserole? I know I sure do! So many varieties, budget friendly, kid friendly, and great to serve when company comes over!
With the school year here, my hubby and I spend our evenings driving our kids to and from sports, attending games, get things gathered for the next school day, and basically, running around until bedtime.
Since dinnertime can be crazy, I try to make something that can be prepped and cooked ahead of time, and served quickly.
Each week, I draft up a meal plan to keep things simple. It helps keep us on track as far as knowing what needs to be thawed in the morning, plus it helps with our budget because I know just what I need to buy each week.

When I looked at my meal plan last week, I noticed I had written burgers and fries for dinner. However, I didnt plan that smart because we had my sons football game to attend, leaving minimal time to grill burgers.
Opting to go the casserole route, I took the french fries and beef and decided to make this dish.
I cooked the ground beef, drained the fat, made a ketchup/mustard sauce, and dumped the french fries on top. I saw this idea floating around Pinterest, so I was curious how it would turn out!
Not only did the french fries get perfectly crisp, but the beef and ketchup/mustard sauce truly made this taste like we were enjoying a burger and fries! Packed with flavor and incredibly simple to prepare!
All the flavors of a tasty burger and fries combine into this family friendly, one pan casserole!
Feel free to make this a Cheeseburger Casserole with tater tots by substituting the fries with tots!
Another great option would be to add in some cooked bacon! Who doesn’t love bacon cheeseburgers, right?! How about some jalapenos to add some heat? See how many options you have?
I prepped this in the afternoon, cooked it early evening, and even reheating it was delicious! The next day, we were able to enjoy the leftovers for lunch and it was just as tasty! My hubby warmed his leftovers up in the microwave, however, I put mine in the oven and the fries crisped right up. Yum!
If you love simple, flavorful one pan meals…this casserole is for you!
