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
Preheat Oven and Prepare Dish:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
Cook Ground Beef:
In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until crumbly. Drain excess grease and season with salt and pepper.
Layer Potatoes and Beef:
Arrange a layer of thinly sliced potatoes at the bottom of the greased baking dish.
Spread the cooked ground beef evenly over the potatoes.
Prepare Soup Mixture:
In a medium bowl, mix the cream of mushroom soup with milk until well combined.
Pour this mixture over the beef layer in the baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
Remove the casserole and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top.
Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Let the casserole stand for 5 minutes before serving. This allows it to set slightly for easier serving.
Pair this hearty casserole with a crisp green salad, steamed vegetables, garlic bread, or cornbread.
For an extra touch of comfort, serve with pickles and sour cream or a sprinkle of extra cheese.
