Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole

January 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

I am a collector of vintage cookbooks and recipe binders. Some of my favorites are the church cookbooks that are a collection of old recipes collected from the members and printed and sold as a fundraiser. One recipe that I kept seeing repeated from these cookbooks was a Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole. Something about it intrigued me. After reading through the many recipes for this classic dish, I decided to put my own spin on it. This Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole can be assembled ahead of time for an easy weeknight meal, it is great for a party or potluck and I am even thinking I may make it for some upcoming Football watch parties. It is super kid friendly but I can guarantee that grown ups will like it too. This recipe feeds at least 10 and all together the ingredients cost me about twenty dollars to make. I had some of the spices on hand, so if you need to buy the spices it would be a little bit more. So here is what you will need to make this Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole.

Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole
An easy casserole that kids and adults will both love!


  • 2 lbs of Ground Beef
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 2 Small Green Peppers, Diced
  • Olive Oil for cooking
  • 1C of Velveeta Cheese, Cubed (maybe a little more if you like it cheesy)
  • 2 C of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 T of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 t of Black Pepper
  • 2 t of Paprika
  • 2 to 3 t of Garlic Salt
  • 1 T of Dried Parsley
  • 1 Bag of Frozen Crinkle Cut French Fries
  • Non Stick Spray
  • 2 Eggs, whisked.

Like all my recipes, the steps are super simple. So simple that you might be making this weekly! Here is what you need to do to make the Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole:


  • Heat a skillet with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and add your onions and peppers and cook until soft.
  • Next crumble your ground beef into the pan and cook until fully done. Use your spoon to break up the meat as it cooks. When my meat was done cooking I needed to drain it and then I returned it to the pan and reduced the heat to low.
  • Next, add all you spices, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce and cook the meat in it for a little bit.
  • Next, add your velveeta cheese and keep stirring until it is all melted and delicious.
  • Next add one cup of the sharp cheddar cheese and stir until it is well combined.
  • Add your meat mixture to a standard size casserole dish that has been sprayed with non stick spray.
  • Add your whisked eggs and stir into the meat. Make sure your meat is a little cool for this step so the eggs don’t cook.
  • Sprinkle the top with 1/2 C of Cheddar Cheese.
  • Next, arrange the frozen french fries on the top of the casserole until it is completely covered. I used about half the bag of fries for this recipe.
  • Season your fries with a little of all the spices and salt and pepper.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
  • At the 45 minute mark, remove from oven and top with the remainder of the cheese. Then sprinkle some dried parsley on top.
  • Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes until it is all crispy and the cheese is browned.

Easy weeknight meal
Delicious as is, or you can add fun toppings like lettuce, onions, pickles, ketchup & mustard.

I didn’t include this in the recipe but you can make a fun buffet by adding bowls of shredded lettuce, onions, diced pickles, ketchup and mustard so everyone can top their piece of the casserole how they choose. I put some lettuce and pickles on mine and it was absolutely delicious.  If you make this recipe and share it on Instagram or Facebook please me sure to tag me @thetipsyhousewife on Instagram and @tipsywife on Facebook.
