Creamy Hamburger Casserole

  Are you figuring out by now that I am in LOVE with anything that involves Cream Cheese or Sour Cream? 

  This is another favorite from waaay back in the day when I was a child. We called it “Regena Casserole” after my Aunt Regena gave the recipe to my mom to try.  My kids have dubbed it “Gena Casserole”, since they call her Aunt Gena, but you can just call it Creamy Hamburger Casserole

Or if you are Avery you can call it:


  The tomato sauce does turn pink, thanks to all the creamy stuff you add! 🙂

  4. This recipe is very similar to my mom’s Hamburger Noodle Bake recipe (no tomato soup in hers and a couple slight variations on amounts). I loved when my mom made this. I was hoping for the same with my kids but, unfortunately neither one likes it. Seeing your post has me craving it now. I guess I will have to make myself some this week and the kids can fend for themselves when I do.
