Cheeseburger casserole recipe

I grew up eating hamburger helper and super easy meals. My mom worked 2nd shift and dad was left to cook for us. I remember quite a few burned meals and then he started to figure it out!

As a young adult I quickly learned the difference between freshly made food from scratch and food from a box. I made Hamburger helper one time at 17 and had an awful time trying to get it to come out. I still have trouble making boxed food. If it comes with a powder that you turn into sauce, I cannot make it!

This Cheeseburger casserole is my version of hamburger helper. My kids always want to try it and never have. I choose to make one for National Cheeseburger Day. As we ate this one of my daughter kept saying that it tastes just like a McDonalds cheeseburger. I thought so too! Let me know what you think!
