End of the Month Casserole Recipe


End of the Month Casserole

Every once in a while, I just throw what I have together and hope that it works out well.  We made this last night (yes, even though it wasn’t on the menu) and the boys loved it.  I didn’t even have enough leftovers for lunch for today!  I have actually made some variation of this before and have always called it “I don’t know”, but last night we decided to come up with a real name for it.  So, we now have “End of the Month” Casserole because at the end of the month, before the paycheck comes in, pantries and freezers are starting to get bare.  But, we pretty much ALWAYS have these necessary ingredients for this stuff. LOL!

This is a true recipe, you will see when you get to the bottom.  LOL!  I just shake and add, no real measurements here!  oops! :-)  I think I drove my husband insane because the whole time I was shaking and measuring and such, I had him writing it down. Poor dear.

End of the Month Casserole Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Fabulous meal made from things I always have on hand!
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 6
  • 1 pound make ahead hamburger meat (or 1 pound of hamburger and 1 muffin of seasoning blend)
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) Cream of Mushroom
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) Beef Broth
  • 1 Tablespoon of Minced Garlic
  • Dash of Kitchen Bouquet
  • Approx. 3 Slices of Bacon - cooked and crumbled
  • Approx 6 large potatoes.
  • 3 Cups of Shredded Mozzarella, divided
  • Dash or Two of Worchestershire Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. To prepared hamburger meat, add: cream of mushroom, beef broth, kitchen bouquet, salt & pepper, garlic, and bacon. Bring to a boil and allow it to simmer while doing step #3.
  3. Peel and slice potatoes. Cover with water in large pot. Bring to boil and continue at good rolling boil for about 7 minutes.
  4. Layer ½ the potatoes, ½ the meat mixture, and ½ of the cheese (in that order) in a small dutch oven. I like to spray it with Pam first.
  5. Repeat layers!
  6. Cover with lid and bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
  7. Remove from the oven, remove the lid, and allow it to sit (to thicken some of the juices) about 10 minutes.

We had ours with Grands Honey Butter Biscuits.  Had I not been in a hurry, this would have been really good with a salad before hand.

  1. I love it, Kelli. We have a “clean out the freezer” supper every once in awhile at our house. And it usually ends up being “my best work”, LOL! This sounds great…potatoes, cheese, cream of mushroom…how can you go wrong!?! Would be delighted for you to link up with us at Mop It Up Mondays:

    Have a great week!

  2. This is a fabulous idea. I’ll have to try it. If you have a crock pot recipe – you should come link up with me at on Thursdays for my Crock Pot Buddies Blog Hop.

    I hope to see you link up!

    Hi Kelly
    This looks yummy and it is good to “see” you again. So sorry to hear that you were having a hard time with and after surgery. That may explain part of my question. Are you aware that some of us (myself and one other girl for sure) did not receive the books you offered through Paperback Swap? PB has marked them lost in the mail and put a hold on your account. Any idea what happened?

    • Donna, thank so much and I have not been “missing”. There is a contact button on PBS, you could have used it as some of the others have. :-) I put my account on vacation, because I had surgery. The books didn’t arrive because I entrusted my husband with them. LMBO! He didn’t make it to the post office until the first person didn’t get their items. I asked and he confessed. Then, they went. However, they are shipping media mail and that can take several weeks. I keep hoping they show pretty soon. :-(

        Hi Kelly – So glad you are feeling better and glad to hear from you. You were so generous to offer these books in the way that you did and I am grateful. Thanks for keeping me up to date.
        God Bless (and your hubby too :}
