Zereh, the definition of casserole is cooking foods you like together in one dish. It doesn't have to involve "cream of" soups, sausage or hamburger.

My grandmother made wonderful scalloped potatoes. She started with her own homemade cream sauce (which is no big deal to make). Butter a casserole dish, and single layer thinly sliced potatoes on the bottom. Top with S&P, finely diced onions, and a scoop of cream sauce. Repeat layers until dish is within 3/4" from the top. Place on foil covered baking sheet to catch drips, cover with lid, and bake in 350 degree oven about 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove lid, top with cheese of your choice, turn heat up to 400, and let the dish brown until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Excellent additions to this dish are: small pieces of ham; cooked and crumbled bacon, fresh chopped parsley, pimentoes, broccoli florets, asparagus tips, frozen peas, chopped green onion tops...a good combination is chopped cooked chicken, peas, carrots, and mushrooms.

Kimbaby, I have a whole different Tator Tot Casserole, but I think you'll like it:

Tator Tot Casserole

2 eggs
1 cup milk
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup ham, choped
1 lb. tator tots, thawed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper

Topping:
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup cooked crumbled bacon

Mix first 7 ingredients together. Put in buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with topping. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

I serve it with catsup on the side, forgive me for being so plebian.

1lb hamburger
1 large sweet onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3/4 cups raw rice ( I use a little less)
1 small head cabbage, chopped
1 can tomato soup plus 1/2 can water
1 15 oz can tomato sauce

Saute hamburger and onions and garlic
Drain.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Mix the rest of the list together. The rice cooks in the oven.
Add the meat. Pace in a baking dish and bake for 1 1/2 hour 350 degrees.
until most of the liquid is gone.

My husband is grateful for anything I cook. He knows what an effort it is for me.

HB is on second shift, which means we have our big meal at noon.

Last night, while he was working, I made spaghetti sauce out of the frozen, roasted tomato sauce I made last summer from my own, homegrown Roma tomatoes. Last night, I cooked a mix of 1/3 Sweet Italian venison sausage (still spicy), and 2/3 ground chuck. After draining the meat, I mixed it up with the frozen sauce, a can of drained mushrooms, a little can of drained,sliced black olives, adjusted the seasoning, and put in the fridge for the night.
Today, Kim helped me heat up and re-season the sauce again, and get the spaghetti cooked. The pasta went into the sauce, got heated some more, then topped with parmesan cheee.
Kim also made some very good garlic/herb/parmesan bread to soak up the sauce.

It was very good. I'll bet it will be even better tomorrow.

I love casseroles! Mom always made great ones, but after I married, my h specifically told me he hated them (except lasagna). I'm guessing it's because his mom and Grandma never made them, so he wasn't used to them. For the last couple of years, I've tried to make at least one or two each week, and he likes them... a lot! My kids like them at dinnertime, but love the leftovers for a quick breakfast.
One I really like:

My Mexican Casserole

1-1/2 lb ground beef, cooked with taco seasoning
4 green onions, sliced (I use kitchen shears)
2 cans chopped tomatoes, not drained
1 small can green chiles, diced
shredded cheese (best to use the white quick-melting mexican cheese)
jalepenos (opt)
1 can of corn, drained
1 small can black olives, sliced
1 can kidney beans, not drained
1 lb. pasta (penne works well), cooked
(If you need more liquid, use beef broth, chicken broth, or whatever you have on hand)
mix all together and put into a large greased pyrex dish (16" is good).
Bake at 350 till it looks done, top with shredded cheeses (monterey jack, pepper jack, sharp cheddar) and bake till cheese is melted. Top each serving with a dollop of sour cream and some avocado slices. You can even put a cilantro leaf or two on top.
