Pantry Staple Ingredients:
Most of the following hamburger casseroles use simple ingredients that most people already have on hand.
For me, there are typical ingredients that I always have in my fridge, freezer, and pantry. These things mean that I can always feed my family, even if we are in desperate need of a grocery run.
I keep things like:
- tomato sauce
- cream of mushroom soup
- chicken & beef broths or stocks
- diced tomatoes and tomato sauce
- green beans
- macaroni and egg noodles
With the above ingredients as well as a few yummy spices like Italian seasoning, taco seasoning, and garlic powder you can pretty much ALWAYS make a filling dish for your family.
Choose a starch, some meat, a couple cans, seasonings, cheese and bake up perfection.
A well-stocked kitchen also has at least one baking dish – if not multiple casserole dishes in different sizes, materials, and with or without lids!
What’s the difference between a stew and a casserole?
Some people will tell you that there isn’t really a big difference between the two. However, this Southern Momma will tell you that there is a HUGE difference!
While the two include the same main parts: meat, veggies, a starch (rice, pasta, or potatoes), and sauce – a stew is typically saucier. There are more juices with a stew and it should be eaten with a spoon – not as clear as a soup, but there is definitely dripping liquid.
The casserole’s juices are cooked out or absorbed into the starch – but also, you start with less liquid. So, you can easily eat it with a fork. Also, a casserole usually has cheese to help hold it all together.
Plus, a typical casserole is cooked in the oven while a stew is cooked on the stovetop. Note: I said “typical” because there are exceptions to every rule.
