TRIED ā€˜Nā€™ TRUE: A cheeseburger, in a quick casserole that can be changed up

TERRE HAUTE — Most people enjoy a cheeseburger. With this recipe you have a quick casserole. You can buy a box mix, but I like this. You can change it a little: try a package of taco seasoning, add dry ranch dressing (dry). You can do so much. You can double or cut this recipe to the size you need. I like to add mushrooms, celery, onion, etc. It is very easy to change to suit your family.

Cheeseburger Casserole

1 lb. hamburger

1 - 8 oz can tomato sauce

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 - 8 oz can biscuit

1 small onion

1/4 cup catsup

5 slices cheese (your choice) (more if desired)

• Brown hamburger and onion, drained. Stir in tomato sauce, catsup and pepper. Heat until bubbly, grease a 8” square pan. Spread one-half the meat mixture in pan, top with cheese. Cover with remaining meat mixture. Arrange biscuits around edges. Place cheese slices on top.

• Bake 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
