Cheesy Hamburger Casserole topped with bacon and filled with pasta, potatoes and more…oh my! Hamburger Casserole has been around forever so I thought I would kick it up a little bit. This one has a huge combination of flavors that taste great together. It takes a little prep work but like any casserole, it is a complete meal in one dish when it’s done baking.
