It’s no secret that quick and easy meals are my favorite dinners for busy weeknights. Whether it’s 10-minute, 20-minute, or simple mix-and-match meals, they are perfect when you need something on the table fast.

Over the last few months, I’ve been sharing our go-to simple and budget-friendly recipes to make when the weather starts to get chilly. Hearty and cozy dinners that are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. 

Since my goal has always been to help you save time (especially in the kitchen), finding delicious, and super-easy recipes has been a priority. And, while I love my crockpot meals, one-pot dinners, and air fryer recipes, for a no-fuss weeknight dinner, lately I’ve been turning to casseroles especially when I want something comforting and satisfying without all the work.

However, I realized the other day that despite sharing my favorite chicken casserole recipes, I’ve never shared a collection of ground beef casserole recipes, which was surprising because ground beef recipes are our go-to frugal dinners to make any time of year. Hopefully, you will be inspired to try some of these tasty, family-friendly ground beef casserole recipes.
