I had my doubts about what this would taste like when I started it but I just had to try it. I added a few more spices to it and this will be going into my rotation of things I’d make again. Those are even dill pickles on top. They actually helped pull the whole thing together. I bet your kids will love this dish!

This cheeseburger casserole is real easy to make, I browned the ground beef and onions on the stove and added it to the crock pot with the tomatoes and spices. I let it cook on high for 3 1/2 hours and then added the cooked noodles in. 15 minutes later I added the cheese and pickles. When the cheese is all melted it is ready to dive into. Don’t skip the pickles!

    Looks delish Mary Ellen! I need to start making a list of crockpot meals I can make so dinner is easier when I get home from work during the week!

    I made this today. My family & I loved it! A little more meat next time, and extra cheese. Yummola! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      I guess you could try beef or chicken broth in place of the tomatoes. I’d just omit the mustard if you don’t like it. That’s my best suggestions but it will change it significantly.

    I noticed the last ingredient is “3/4 cup diced dill pepper”. Based on all the comments, I take it that is that supposed to be dill pickles?

  4. Krista says

    When it says cook for 3 1/2 hours. What heat level are you meaning?
    I don’t know exactly what to set my crock pot on…first time ever using one!

      Wow this is really good! I made this in the Instant Pot by sautéing the meat and onions first, then adding all the other ingredients (including the pasta) and adding some chicken broth (that’s all I had in the cabinet), just enough to cover the pasta. Set it on high pressure for 10 min and quick release. Mixed in the cheese afterwards and topped with the pickles.
