Here are four of our favorite easy Ground Beef Casseroles for you to try!

Martha’s Company Casserole

First up we have Martha’s Company Casserole, which is a time tested classic. First published in a 1958 publication of Good Housekeeping’s Casserole Book, Martha’s Company Casserole is a delicious combination of egg noodles, a tomato-based meat sauce, and a creamy filling.

Amish Country Pasta Casserole


We’re always on the lookout for dinners that are easy and delicious, so it’s no wonder we love this Amish Country casserole so much. We’re not exactly sure what the story is behind this dish, but we’re super glad we made it and can’t wait to share it with you. Basically a creamy, cheesy, beefy pasta bake, this is a comforting dinner that we love to make and that our family loves to eat – you’ll see!

Cattle Drive Casserole


Cattle Drive Casserole. Now that’s a name for a meal. Regardless of whether you’ve been on one, the point of this stuffed-to-the-brim dish is that it could fuel you up and keep you full during a cattle drive, were you to go on one. And that’s just fine with us! Along with ground beef, tomatoes, chiles, bell pepper and onion, this recipe’s got one unexpected ingredient…bisquick! That’s right, we start this bad boy off with a hearty biscuit layer to soak up all the great flavors of everything going on above it, then we top it all off with a green chile-sour cream-mayo situation that adds both flavor and creaminess, and we can’t get enough of it.

French Onion Beef Noodle Bake


Last but not least is our French Onion Beef Noodle Bake. There are some casseroles that attempt to approximate an entire healthy meal in a single baking dish, maybe involving some rice and some chicken and some sensible broccoli. And then… then, there are casseroles that are unapologetically creamy, meant solely to provide you a delicious helping of comfort out of a casserole dish. This is the latter. This easy casserole has only seven ingredients, but each one wholeheartedly plays its part in creating a seriously comforting and delicious bake.
