This hearty dish is a comfort food classic, perfect for a cozy night in or a family gathering. It’s a versatile meal that can be customized to suit your taste, and it’s incredibly easy to prepare. Let’s dive into the delightful world of hamburger mushroom bake!


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of mushrooms, sliced (I prefer using a mix of cremini and shiitake mushrooms for a robust flavor)
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of cooked egg noodles (or any pasta of your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • Bread crumbs for topping (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a baking dish.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with the diced onions and minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked, drain any excess fat.
  3. Stir in the sliced mushrooms and cook for a few minutes until they are tender.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the cream of mushroom soup and sour cream until well combined.
  5. Add the soup mixture to the skillet with the beef and mushrooms, and stir until everything is evenly coated.
  6. Cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions, then toss them with butter.
  7. Layer the cooked noodles in the greased baking dish, followed by the beef and mushroom mixture. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bread crumbs if desired.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving, and enjoy the savory aroma that fills your kitchen!

My Personal Touch:

I love adding a generous sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley on top of the hamburger mushroom bake before serving. It adds a pop of color and a hint of freshness to the dish. Additionally, I sometimes swap the ground beef for ground turkey to make a lighter version, and it’s equally delicious!

Why I Love This Dish:

What I adore about this recipe is its comforting and homey feel. The combination of the savory beef, earthy mushrooms, and creamy sauce creates a symphony of flavors that always hits the spot. The ease of preparation and the ability to customize the ingredients make it a winner in my book.


Whether you’re a seasoned cook or just starting out in the kitchen, the hamburger mushroom bake is a must-try. It’s a satisfying meal that brings warmth and joy to the table. Give it a try, and I’m sure it will become a staple in your recipe collection.
