Crock Pot Hamburger Casserole

This is one of those recipes in my cookbook that I personally had handwritten.  I had not made it in awhile, but usually when I write something in it must of  been good.  I  needed something for the crock pot on a busy track meet day so I tried this out.  It was good.   I left from the track meet to a meeting and did not get home until late.  When arriving home I found that my family had ordered pizza...WHAT???  Come to find out the potatoes weren't done and they were starved.   I don't know if it was my potatoes or if I just did not start it early enough in the day, but they took a full 8 hours to get cooked.  I put the crock pot in the fridge and we ate it the next day.  It was good.
Crock Pot Hamburger Casserole
1 pound hamburger, browned and drained
6 potatoes, sliced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 (14.5 oz.) can cut green beans.
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
Mix hamburger, potatoes, onions and cheese together in the crock pot.  Pour beans over top. 
Mix together the cream of mushroom soup with 1 can of water(or milk), sour cream, salt and pepper.  Spoon over the top of the beans. 
Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours.  (Mine took the full 8)
Next time I think I will add some garlic and mushrooms to the potato mixture.
I think it would be fine mixing everything together and placing in the crock pot. 
Next time I may serve the beans on the side.
My friend brought me something similar when one of my babies were born.  There were no beans and it was baked.  So that is another option.
Simple and everyone liked it.


  1. My friend makes this (minus the green beans) and it is so good! It doesn't look the prettiest, but it is yummy :)

  2. Hmmm. When did they put it on? I'm surprised that it wasn't done. It sounds really good.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
