  • Ground Beef: 1 lb, browned until no pink remains.
  • Onions: 1 cup, chopped, adds sweetness and texture.
  • Mushrooms: 2 cups, sliced, for a rich umami flavor.
  • Garlic Powder: 1 teaspoon, for a hint of garlic.
  • Salt and Pepper: To taste, for seasoning.
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: 1 can (10.75 oz), creates a creamy base.
  • Milk: 1/2 cup, thins the soup for a sauce-like consistency.
  • Sour Cream: 1/2 cup, adds richness and tang.
  • Cheddar Cheese: 2 cups, shredded, for cheesy goodness.
  • Mixed Vegetables: 2 cups frozen (like peas and carrots), thawed, for color and nutrition.
  • Breadcrumbs or Crushed Crackers: 1/2 cup, provides a crunchy topping.
  • Butter: 2 tablespoons, melted, mixed with breadcrumbs for the topping.


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C) to ensure it’s hot enough for baking the casserole.
  2. Brown the Meat: In a large skillet, cook the ground beef with onions over medium heat until the beef is thoroughly browned and the onions are soft.
  3. Cook Mushrooms: Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and continue cooking until they are tender and have released their moisture.
  4. Season: Stir in garlic powder, salt, and pepper, mixing well to distribute the flavors evenly throughout the meat and vegetables.
  5. Mix the Sauce: In a separate bowl, blend the cream of mushroom soup, milk, and sour cream until smooth. This mixture will form the creamy base of your bake.
  6. Combine Ingredients: Add the sauce and thawed mixed vegetables to the skillet with the beef and mushrooms, stirring to ensure everything is well coated and mixed.
  7. Assemble the Bake: Transfer the mixture to a baking dish. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the top, then mix the breadcrumbs (or crushed crackers) with melted butter and scatter them over the cheese.
  8. Bake: Place the dish in the oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the sauce is bubbly.
  9. Rest and Serve: Let the casserole sit for a few minutes after removing it from the oven to set before serving.
