            I changed it up a little to give it a more healthy side to it. I left out the heavy cream, the fattening bread crumbs and lowered the calories.

We retain that down home warming casserole taste without ruining your health efforts.

            There are ingredients that some people have allergies to, be aware of who you are serving.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I use a different type of meat?

To be honest, I have been known to use venison or elk in this casserole. You could also switch up sausage or chicken and not lose any of the flavor.

Can I add a topping to this dish?

You could use seasoned bread crumbs, or crush Ritz crackers and sprinkle on in the last 10 minutes.

Can I use any mushrooms?

I normally use button or sliced portobello mushrooms, you could use any type of mushroom that you like. Shitake, cremini or buttons, portobello and porcini all taste wonderful in this dish.

What do you need to make Hamburger Mushroom Bake:

            1 pound lean ground beef

            ¼ tsp black pepper

            1 tsp salt

            1 tsp seasoned salt

            1 tsp parsley, dried

            3 eggs

            2 tbsp butter

            1 pound mushrooms, sliced

            6 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature

            1 cup shredded or grated cheese, (Parmesan, Mozzarella, Cheddar)

How to make Hamburger Mushroom Bake:

FIRST STEP:

Preheat the oven to 350*

Brown the lean ground beef in a large skillet.

SECOND STEP:

Season with the Salt and Pepper

Set aside to cool

THIRD STEP:

Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, add the eggs one at a time, until well mixed

Pour over the ground beef and stir to combine

FOURTH STEP:

Place this mixture into a small baking dish and press down

In the frying pan, add butter and saute the mushrooms

FIFTH STEP:

Sprinkle with salt and pepper, seasoning salt and parsley

Cook until soft and when they start to turn brown

SIXTH STEP:

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the casserole is set

SEVENTH STEP:

Bread crumbs or crushed crackers can be sprinkled on top during the last ten minutes

Sprinkle with grated cheese and let the cheese melt before removing from the oven.

Tips:

This dish can be served with a plate of white rice,  or with homemade mashed potatoes. A dinner salad on the side makes it the perfect combination and filling meal. We usually have a roasted vegetable such as asparagus or green beans, and some homemade garlic toast as a side. 

This dish is a meal itself, it never hurts to add some extra vegetables in your meal. I also tend to add some onions in the skillet when I am browning the ground beef. Saute until they turn opaque and are softened.  This is a very versatile meal that you can add to, using basically anything your family enjoys.
