Ground Beef and Potato casserole


  • 2 lbs. Ground Beef
  • 1 Tablespoon shortening
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 6 or 8 medium potatoes, sliced
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated


Brown ground beef in shortening in skillet, stirring until crumbly; drain.  Put onions in skillet with the same grease from hamburger!  Cook until soft, then drain. Mix with ground beef. Mix soup and a small amount of boiling water in bowl. Layer potatoes, ground beef  mixture and soup mixture 1/2 at a time. Sprinkle half of cheese over all, then layer other half  and sprinkle with rest of cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  May add more water for desired consistency!

I developed this recipe for Peggy’s Restaurant one day and it caught on pretty quickly! My sister Sherry just loved it and begged me to make it again. I hope  you try it .  Enjoy!
