Fall Beef Casseroles


It’s casserole time of year!

The weather starts to turn and our minds begin to turn to foods that bring warmth.

To celebrate the season, Southern Living has put together a tasty list of 7 beef casseroles to warm your heart and your belly.

Most use ground beef in these amazing recipes like beefy lasagna, chili hash brown bake and the classic shepherd’s pie.

Take a look at all 7 and try them out this fall. They’ll put a smile on your face and pep in your step – even when there’s a nip in the air!

Happy casseroling!
