Cheesy Ground Beef and Potato Casserole

Cheesy Ground Beef and Potato Casserole ~ Layers of scrumptious Potatoes, Ground Beef, Cheese and more ~ Comfort Food and such a quick and easy recipe !

As I have mentioned before, we are having thunderstorms and rain just about every day for the past few weeks and even though it is not that cold, I always crave comfort food when it is raining. I put together this Cheesy Ground Beef and Potato Casserole a couple of days ago and it was so good, I just have to share it with you.

It is a very simple, yet scrumptious casserole and you should have everything on hand especially if you are a Ground Beef fan. The choice of Sauce or Salsa is also limitless and you could really add any kind of Sauce/Salsa you like - like a Chili Sauce ? Use that instead.

I cook the Potatoes only long enough until a knife just cuts into the Potato - it might even still be a little hard in the center. This helps with slicing the Potatoes into slices, but hey, if you overcooked the Potatoes a little and it breaks up a bit when slicing, no problem, the dish is so delicious no one will even notice there are slices and pieces all together in the casserole.

This cheesy ground Beef and Potato casserole will definitely become a family favorite and it is already on my list of favorite-go-to-recipes !

Cheesy Ground Beef and Potato Casserole

4  Servings

INGREDIENTS:

4 Large Potatoes, peeled
2 TB Olive Oil
1 Onion, chopped
2 t Fresh Garlic, crushed
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
500g Lean Ground Beef
1/2 cup Peppadew Sauce {or Salsa of your choice}
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
4 Eggs
1 cup Milk

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a large oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Boil the Potatoes in salted water until just cooked {do not overcook} - slice into thick slices and set aside.
3.) Heat the Oil in a pan - saute the Onion, Garlic and Bell Pepper until soft - add the Beef and cook until done {drain if necessary} - stir in the Sauce or Salsa - season to taste with Salt and Pepper.
4.) Arrange half the sliced Potatoes on the bottom of the prepared dish - scoop half of the Beef mixture over the Potato layer and sprinkle over half the Cheddar Cheese - repeat layers ending with a layer of Cheese.
5.) Beat together the Eggs and Milk - pour slowly and carefully over the layered Potato/Beef dish - bake 40 - 45 minutes or until set {place a layer of aluminum foil over the dish if it browns too quickly after 30 minutes - shiny side up}

Serve with cubed Tomatoes, Onion and Avocado.

  1. I'll try this, Linda. Although I usually have ground turkey instead of ground beef, but I bet it would work just the same, right? Perfect comfort food for this time of year!
