Hamburger Potato Casserole Recipe Notes
- Baking Dish: You need to use an extra deep 9X13 baking dish. Pyrex has a new product out that fits the bill perfectly! My sister, Chrissy, told me about: the Pyrex 9X13 deep glass bakeware! I bought mine at Target.
- Potatoes: The type of potato you use in this hamburger potato casserole recipe matters! If you use one that’s too soft, it’ll disintegrate in cooking. That’s why russet potatoes are so great — it’s full of starch that’ll help it hold its shape!
Storing + Freezing + Make-Ahead
- How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge? Any leftovers can be properly stored and sealed in the fridge for up to four days. I love portioning the casserole out so I have ready-to-grab meals!
- Can You Freeze This Hamburger Potato Casserole? Definitely! Most casseroles are great for freezer meals. You can either freeze it before you cook it or after — either way, it’ll store in your freezer for up to 2-3 months.
- To thaw, let it sit in the fridge overnight, then pop it in the oven and either finish cooking it or heat it up!
- Make Ahead Tips: See my note about freezing it above! Casseroles like this one make great freezer meals to have on hand when you just don’t feel like cooking. Whip it up, store it, and you’re ready to go!
I love serving this casserole with delectable side dishes like brown sugar carrots, savory southern style green beans, roasted broccoli, or broccoli cauliflower casserole.It’s also great with Bisquick biscuits, beer bread, or Southern cornbread. All super yummy choices.
