Cheeseburger Casserole

Cheeseburger casserole is a one-dish meal made from traditional cheeseburger ingredients with pasta in place of the bun. The first casserole dish was created in New Hampshire by French Canadian immigrant Elmire Jolicoeur in 1866. Cooking in earthenware vessels is common practice throughout much of the world, but the traditional American idea of the casserole as a one-dish meal didn’t really hit US tables until the 20th Century. Casserole recipes became especially popular in the 1950s, when lightweight metal and glass cookware became available.
