Cheesy Hamburger Casserole is a favorite at my house. A ground beef mixture is topped with a layer of cheese. A crescent roll crust tops this delicious casserole. It’s comfort food to the max!
I love a good casserole. One-dish meals are easy to make and cleanup is a breeze. Actually, this recipe calls for a twofer. You’ll need a skillet to brown the meat and a casserole dish to bake the hamburger casserole.
If a recipe calls for crescent rolls, I’m all in. My recipes for crescent roll cinnamon rolls are always a favorite.

Hamburger Casserole in 3 Easy Steps
1. Brown ground beef and onions, drain and stir in pasta sauce. Heat through. Place in an ungreased casserole dish.
2. Mix together shredded mozzarella cheese and sour cream. Spread over the ground beef mixture.
3. Press the seams together and roll out the crescent roll dough to fit your casserole dish. Brush with butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375º until golden brown.
This is the easiest casserole to make. You can see the complete recipe below.
Note: I don’t add salt or pepper to this casserole. Cheese is salty and I use premade Ragu pasta sauce. I don’t think it needs any other seasonings.
Feel free to taste the pasta sauce and add salt and pepper or even a teaspoon of Italian seasoning if desired.
