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.

Ingredients
  • 4 Large Potatoes peeled
  • 2 TB Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 t Fresh Garlic crushed
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper chopped
  • 450 g Lean Ground Beef ( 1 pound )
  • 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
Instructions
  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.

This casserole looks delicious. I love that it has avocados served with it. Thanks for this great recipe; it is easy enough that I can make it--I'm not a great cook.
