Casseroles are a great way to make a hearty, inexpensive meal for
your family.  My favorite ingredient to use in them is ground beef.  
There are countless recipes you can come up with using ground beef
in your casserole dishes.  If you have ground beef in your home, odds
are you can put together a delicious meal with ingredients already in
your pantry.  It’s also a great way to combine all four food groups into
one dish.  Here are a couple quick and easy ground beef casserole
recipes that your whole family can enjoy.
