If you make a lot of casseroles I highly recommend you invest in some baking dishes with lids.

They make storing leftovers so much easier and are great for transporting food.

No more fighting with cling wrap!

I tend to make a lot of chicken casseroles but I came up with this recipe because I had a freezer full of ground beef (I always stock up when it’s on sale!) and wanted to try something different.

I’ve always loved meatloaf and nothing goes better with tasty ground beef than mashed potatoes.

And once you add mashed potatoes you might as well go all out and add some cheese and bacon too!

This ground beef casserole recipe combines delicious meatloaf and garlicky mashed potatoes loaded with cheese and bacon.

Ground beef for meatloaf

I started by mixing ground beef and diced onions with seasoned Italian bread crumbs, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce for flavour.

You could definitely add in some of your personal favourite seasonings too.

I added one egg to the mixture to hold everything together.

I used my hands to get the mixture fully combined.

The meat mixture was then pressed into an 8 inch square baking dish.

I topped the meat with garlic instant mashed potatoes.

I used instant mashed potatoes to save on time but you could make them from scratch if you prefer.

You could also try a different flavour of the instant mashed potatoes. 

Shredded cheddar cheese and real bacon bits sprinkled on top take this dish to another level.

I used store bought bacon bits as another time saving measure.

Walmart sells a large bag of real bacon bits for a really great price.

I try to always have some in the fridge because they come in really handy.

If you’re not short on time you could cook your own bacon.

The potato meatloaf casserole cooks up in just 40 minutes at 400F.

I kept it covered with aluminium foil until the final ten minutes of cooking to prevent the cheese from burning.
