About This Recipe

Cheeseburger and Fries Bake is a super simple, very family friendly casserole that is a mashup between a meatball casserole and baked French fries. And kind of like Tater Tot Hot Dish. It’s so easy to make. And it’s flavored with delicious ingredients like ketchup, mustard, and pickles.

The fries get crisp and golden brown, and the meatball mixture is creamy and rich and flavorful. You could add more veggies to this recipe if you’d like – some chopped yellow summer squash or frozen green beans would be very good. Or add some frozen peas or even a bag of frozen mixed vegetables. I guess it depends on how much you think you could get by your kids.

You do need to thaw the meatballs before you add them to this recipe. I like to put the bag or box of frozen meatballs in the fridge the night before I make this recipe. Or you could thaw them according to the package directions. If you choose to make your own meatballs, cook them thoroughly before using them in this casserole.

All you need to serve with this wonderful hot dish is a salad – fruit or green, your choice. If you serve a green salad, add some Thousand Island Dressing because that really goes well with cheeseburgers and fries. Yum.

How to make the best Cheeseburger and Fries Bake

  • Thaw the frozen meatballs, but don’t cook them before you add them to the recipe. If you are making your own meatballs, bake them and let them cool for 30 minutes before adding them to the sauce.
  • Some of the fries will be a little bit soggy on the bottom where they are in contact with the sauce, but that just adds to the deliciousness of the recipe. The ones on top will be very crisp and golden.

Why this recipe works

  • Crisp fries, tender meatballs, and a sauce that tastes like a cheeseburger. What’s not to like?




Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch by 13-inch glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.


In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the onion, garlic, and butter. Cook and stir for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add the red bell pepper and thawed frozen meatballs and cook for a few minutes.


Add the undrained tomatoes and bring to a boil. Simmer for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Then stir in the corn.


Pour the Alfredo sauce into the saucepan. Add the milk to the Alfredo sauce jar, close it tightly, and shake. Pour into the saucepan along with the ketchup, mustard, and pickles. Simmer for 4 minutes.


Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the cheese until melted. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Top with the frozen French fries and sprinkle with the Parmesan.


Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 55 minutes or until the fries are golden and crisp and the casserole is bubbly. Serve.
