Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Grandma's Mac & Cheese Casserole

Grandma's Mac & Cheese Casserole

I have a super easy and really yummy recipe for you today.  This is one that my grandma used to make supposedly although honestly I don't ever remember having it at her house only at home.  Oh well we still call it Grandma's Casserole anyways!



Grandma's Mac & Cheese Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 1lb Ground Beef (I've tried it with ground turkey and this one honestly isn't the same)
  • 3 medium-ish potatoes
  • 1 can creamed corn
  • Milk & butter to make mashed potatoes, or however you like to make them
The 1 lb ground beef and the 3 medium potatoes are really just guidelines.  I think we had 1.25 lbs and 4 small potatoes.  It's not an exact science with this one.
Using the Boil Over No More while making my potatoes!

1.  Pre-heat oven to about 350 (little more won't hurt it).  Brown your ground beef, season with garlic and onion powders.  Drain beef then add to casserole dish.

2.  While beef is cooking peel and chunk potatoes.  Then boil potatoes.  When they are finished add desired amount of milk and butter then mash!!  I love my Mix N' Masher for this since I can mash and sorta whip the potatoes at the same time.

3.  Once potatoes are mashed to your desired consistency and taste spread them on top of the ground beef.  Then add the cream corn on top, spreading it so it's even.  

4.  Cook in oven for about 30 minutes.  Sometimes I like to do it a little longer so the cream corn isn't so watery and is heated thoroughly.

Enjoy!!!

Like my Grandma's Mac and Cheese Casserole this one is a great one to save some of the leftovers and re-heat at lunch.  It heats up fabulously in the microwave.
