Chow Mein Hamburger Hot Dish is a household favorite. Growing up in the midwest, my mom would have this dish on the weekly dinner rotation. Now, after making a few of my own modifications and introducing it to my casserole loving husband, it is now on OUR own dinner rotation!
This hearty casserole doesn’t take much effort to make. Once the ground beef and rice are cooked, they are combined with the remaining ingredients and poured into the casserole pan to bake for 20 minutes. It’s that easy!
Note: Be sure to save a couple handfuls of Chow Mein noodles to add when you reheat the leftovers.
Most of the ingredients are everyday items you may find in your kitchen – with the exception of Chow Mein noodles.
The casserole will fill your kitchen with smells to make your stomach rumble. Luckily, it only takes 20 minutes to cook. I always like to add a little more soy sauce after dishing a serving on my plate. Feel free to add additional chow mein noodles too. If you like an extra crunch to the mixture – try adding water chestnuts or bean sprouts before baking.
