Notes

  • Drain off the excess grease from the hamburger if needed.
  • I always season my ground beef with salt and pepper to taste when browning it for any recipe.
  • 4 cups equals 1 quart.
  • Substitute your favorite shredded cheese for the sharp cheddar, if desired. 
  • It doesn't take long to bake in the oven, just until the cheese melts and is bubbly hot.
