Instead of serving a traditional sandwich style cheeseburger, I'm mixing things up with today's featured recipe for two -- Cheeseburger Casserole Bowls.  The creamy burger casserole is topped with diced, seasoned and toasted hamburger buns.  Alternatively, you can finely dice the hamburger buns to create bread crumbs that can be browned and sprinkled on top.

No matter how you slice it, you'll end up with a dinner that looks and eats like a casserole, but tastes like a cheeseburger.  Yum!

Cheeseburger Casserole Bowls
Total Time: 40 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 35 minutes

What you'll need
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
2 cups cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup skim milk 
2 hamburger buns 
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
shredded cheddar cheese
favorite burger toppings (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Dice hamburger buns into 1-inch cubes.

3. Season the buns with seasoned salt, garlic salt and pepper. 
4. Spread the seasoned bun cubes across a baking sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes. 
5. While the buns are baking, cook the lean ground beef and onion in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes. 
6. Stir in cream of mushroom soup and milk.  Mix well and simmer for 10 minutes. 
7. Divide the meat mixture in half, and scoop each half into an oven safe bowl.  Top with baked buns and shredded cheese. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. 
8. If you are really in the cheeseburger spirit, garnish with your favorite burger toppings.  
9. Serve and enjoy!

I've tried to find a way to add a printable version to the site, and it doesn't appear that my host site allows it. Sorry that you have to print all the pictures with the recipe. Hopefully I'll find a solution soon.
