We are in comfort food mode these past couple weeks and this crockpot hamburger casserole did not disappoint. Do you ever have those days where you don’t feel like going to the market but need to make dinner? I have those moments all the time. This time, I had hamburger, broccoli, corn and rice on hand so I decided to throw it all in the crockpot with a container of vegetable broth and a bit of shredded cheese.

Casseroles never are easy to photograph as many times, they look like mush. That’s what my son said about this casserole.

“Mom, it looks like mush.”

I said, “I know, but it’s going to taste delicious.”
