Hamburger Crunch

Hamburger Crunch is exactly as the name indicates – Crunchy, saucy Hamburger casserole and the ideal dinner on a busy week day.

Hamburger Crunch

Crunchy, meaty and saucy ! You get it all in this recipe for Hamburger Crunch. This is a delicious and quick dish which I have found whilst roaming the internet recently.

Ground Beef has always been one of the most versatile (and economical !) meats and I always have a couple of kilograms in the freezer.

Meatballs, casseroles, burger patties, topping for snacks, pastas, meatloaves – you name it and Ground Beef is usually the star in the recipe.

The original recipe was on Recipe Lion and you can have a peek at it here

I adapted the recipe slightly. If, however, you prefer a less saucy dish, but still want all the flavor, omit* one can of the Tomato Soup and add a 115 gram can of Tomato Paste.

This is the Tomato Soup I use (the Heat-N-Eat kind)

Hamburger Crunch - Soup Ingredient

We actually enjoy the sauciness and it is an absolute joy, to dip dinner rolls into it. Other than the dinner rolls, I only added a green salad.

It's like a Walking Taco in a big dish :) The schools here serve little bags of Fritos with seasoned taco meat and cheese. I like the idea of saucy...and dinner rolls. Everything is better with dinner rolls ;)
