by admin

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 large potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish to prepare for the ultimate comfort feast.
  2. Cook Ground Beef: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned and crumbly, about 5-7 minutes. Drain any excess grease and season the meat with salt and pepper, laying the foundation for a flavor-packed casserole.
  3. Layer Potatoes: Arrange a layer of thinly sliced potatoes at the bottom of the greased baking dish, creating a base that will soak up all the delicious flavors.
  4. Add Ground Beef: Spread the cooked ground beef evenly on top of the potatoes, ensuring every bite is meaty and satisfying.
  5. Prepare Creamy Mixture: In a medium bowl, whisk together the condensed cream of mushroom soup and milk until smooth. Pour this creamy mixture over the beef layer, enveloping it in rich, savory goodness.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, during which the ingredients will meld together, creating a symphony of flavors and textures.
  7. Add Cheese: Remove the casserole from the oven and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top, adding a layer of gooey, melty delight. Return it to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
  8. Rest and Serve: Let the casserole stand for 5 minutes before serving. This rest time allows the casserole to set slightly, making it easier to serve and ensuring that each portion is perfectly layered and delicious.
