Cheesesteak Casserole

So living in South Jersey the Cheesesteak is one of our major food groups.  It really is.  We are fussy about them and we love them.  I wanted to take that idea, that taste, and put it into a casserole.  This turned out really delicious and is a quick/easy dinner (something I require in a casserole!). Everyone ate their share and fought over the left overs – that’s what we want in a dinner right?

Cheesesteak Casserole is definitely going on our family’s meal planning rotation.  It wasn’t hard to make and it has great flavor (and cheaper than ordering out to get cheesesteaks!) I love it when I have a plan for dinner – and having Cheesesteak Casserole for dinner is a must in our house. We just loved it. I hate hearing “oh no not that again” and thankfully my family enjoyed this as much as I did (which makes my life SO MUCH EASIER!).

If you don’t live on the East Coast with available amazing Cheesesteaks, you can pretend you are there when you’re eating this! I love a dinner that transports me, especially when I’m stuck inside during the winter.

Have you guessed how much I love Cheesesteak Casserole yet? I know I know – I’m repeating, but you guys have to try it out – Tell me what you think! I bet you repeat how much you love it too!

  1. Could this meal become a freezer meal? I know some meals you can double the batch and freeze one casserole.. not sure if anyone tried it that way. Please let me know. I am new to your site, but I love your recipes. I can’t wait to try a few of them! 🙂

    • I don’t like the taste of noodles frozen so I wouldn’t freeze it (how come it works for lasagna but not otherwise!:) ) so…if I was going to freeze it I would make up the meat and peppers and freeze that. then day of cooking would do the noodles and cheese and bake 😉

      Glad you found us!

  2. What a unique flavor twist! This looks like something my family would really enjoy. PINed it. 🙂

  3. Clever idea! Looks quick, easy and delish! Winner!

  4. Can you use regular shredded cheese? We don’t like Velveeta.

  5. Meredith says

    I added mushrooms and topped with shredded cheese. Can’t wait to taste it! It was awesome in the pan before baking though! Thank you!

    I’m on Atkins at the moment, but thought i’d tell you about a cheese steak recipe I discovered that might interest your low carb readers. It was a special at the local diner called the hangover. It was an omelet made with 3 eggs, fried mushrooms, onions and peppers,chopped up cooked minute steaks and I chose american cheese, but use any that you like. My eyes were rolling in the back of my head. Sooner or later I’m gonna blow this diet ( I always do ), that’s when I’ll try your recipe. It looks delicious!

  7. I made this last night, an my family loved it!!
    I was running out of time so I didn’t put it in the oven. An it was still awesome!!

  8. Made this yesterday on whim looking for a casserole to bring to lodge picnic. Used the noodles by Barilla that are gluton free. Everyone pretty much liked it with the comment of ..” too much green pepper ” That being said, the one couple who are from Jersey LOVED IT. This recipe seems very versitle and I like the suggestions above. I think I will make this again with the chopped steaks, with just a little bit of sausage and use the provolone cheese instead of velvita.

    • I LOVE that the Jersey People liked it – PHEW! 😉

      and in my house there is no such thing as too much green pepper 😉 but I get it!

  9. Sounds great! Have you ever tried this in a crockpot? Thanks

  10. I made this the other day with bowtie pasta and added shredded cheese too. It was delicious. My family approves and it is so easy.

  11. I’m trying this tonight. I might skip the baking part, since I’m not sure why it is necessary?

  12. This was so so good! Only change was I used red/orange peppers because my kids are pepper racists. It was amazing! Will definitely make again!

  13. Looks so good ! , I wonder would this taste good with chopped up steak but what type of steak hmmmm…

  14. I made this the other night, and it was great. I was hoping it would be a little more creamier, so next time I may not use as much macaroni or a little more cheese. The leftovers were great as well.

  15. I loved the suggestions. I made this before as written. Loved it. Tonight I add a can of sliced mushrooms and topped it off with some shredded provolone then baked. Awesome!

  16. Hi can this be made ahead and cooked later?

    • I wouldn’t really…however it’s an awesome leftover 😉 so you could make it and heat it up later

  17. The meat was dry after cooking and draining…soooooo…I added 1/2 cup of steak sauce. BOOM! Right outta the ball park!

  18. This was very good, even the second and third day! I made my own cheese sauce with provolone and cheddar. Thanks for the recipe, will make it again.

  19. I added some sour cream and shredded cheddar and made creamer. So good!

  20. This looks yummy! Being from the Northern part if New Jersey, we have traveled long ways for a good Cheesesteak! Thank you for the recipe! Will be trying it soon!

  21. The entire family really liked this!! A lot! I used Queso Blanco Velveeta and added a little Montreal steak seasoning to the beef for a little extra flavor. I also added more cheese than the recipe called for and and quite a bit of milk to make the cheese sauce creamy. We loved it much so that we are already planning our next meal with it. One person wants to add poblano peppers and another wants to add mushrooms. Such a great adaptable recipe. Thanks so much.

  22. Made this for dinner tonight.. it was not very creamy, and I used extra cheese before I put it in the oven, but still wasn’t that creamy. My family says it taste like hamburger helper.. all that work and I can’t believe they thought it was hamburger helper.. it’s a great recipe. I’ll have to work on the creamy part, but it’s not anywhere near hamburger helper. My family hasn’t had hammer helper in years, so I’m not sure where that came from.. lol. Thanks for the recipes..

  23. I made this But used shredded provolone instead because as much as I like velvita, it doesn’t like me. It looked to dry so I made a sauce to put over it. I melted butter, added flour and added cream cheese and milk and a little extra salt-and-pepper and poured it over the casserole.

  24. Love it!! I told my wife already about this and we will be setting this up this weekend. Thanks for the recipe. A nice mix from the usual Cheese Steak!

  25. I added chopped jalapeños to this and it was ah-making. Next time I’ll skip the baking part. I feel like it dried it out too much.

  26. I am also from South Jersey and this recipe looks delicious. Do you think using steak sandwich meat like Steakums would work instead of using ground beef. Love your recipes.

  27. How many servings would you say this makes? Thank you!
