Bubble-Up Hamburger Casserole

Bubble-Up Hamburger Casserole is the casserole version of the beloved American hamburger. Instead of a bun, this recipe calls for biscuits that will "bubble up" during the baking process. A ground beef mixture lies on top of the biscuits and the finishing touch is, of course, cheese. This hamburger casserole recipe is very easy to put together, so it can be made during the week. If you don't feel like making patties and opening up the grill, this casserole is here for you. It has the same components but doesn't require as much work.

Hamburger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Hamburger Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.

Hamburger Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
