Hamburger Potato Casserole

A easy casserole recipe with hamburger, potatoes and cheese, kind of like a meaty potatoes au gratin or scalloped potatoes with hamburger.

You will hear no complains from every member in your house on this recipe. Plus with our crazy busy schedule lately, this dish is easy to throw together and in the oven in no time.

If your husband is like mine which loves anything with a "meat and potato" backbone and they especially love anything with ground beef. So I took one of my favorite recipes Super Easy Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes, added some onion and hamburger and called'er done.




  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp each of any of these: garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups thinly sliced potatoes (about 5 potatoes)
  • 1 1/2 cups condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • 1/2 Cup stock (any kind)
  • 1/4 Cup milk or cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease an 11 x 7 glass baking dish.
  2. In medium frying pan, cook the onions and ground meat until done, add the seasonings (if you choose any), and some pepper. Drain the grease.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the soup, stock, milk, salt and pepper.
  4. Layer into the baking dish half of the potatoes, then pour some soup over them. Then sprinkle in half the meat, then the cheese. Repeat with the rest of the potatoes, soup, meat and then the cheese.
  5. Cover with lightly greased (on it's underside so the cheese doesn't stick to it) aluminum foil and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the potatoes are tender.


* I made the mistake of adding salt as I cooked the meat the first time, but I had also used stock made from bouillon cubes, and it was too salty. I made this again (I wouldn't give you a recipe that was no good!) and used homemade stock, and added just a pinch of salt, and it was perfect. So, if you use bouillon, don't add any extra salt, if you use homemade stock (that doesn't have as much salt) add some as needed (taste the soup, stock, cream mixture before using it). **
