Why Make this Casserole Recipe
This hamburger potato casserole is easy to make and tastes great. You can easily assemble this ahead of time and then place in the oven when you are ready to eat.


1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
3–4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (10.5 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
Paprika or dried herbs (optional, for seasoning)


Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Ingredients:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Peel (if desired) and thinly slice the potatoes. Set aside.

Cook the Ground Beef:

In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef and onion until the meat is browned and the onion is soft. Drain any excess fat.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare the Creamy Sauce:

In a bowl, mix together the condensed soup, milk, and sour cream until smooth.

Assemble the Casserole:

In a greased 9×13 inch baking dish, layer half of the sliced potatoes.
Spread half of the cooked ground beef over the potatoes.
Pour half of the creamy sauce over the beef and potatoes.
Repeat the layers with the remaining potatoes, beef, and sauce.
Sprinkle the top with shredded cheddar cheese and a dash of paprika or dried herbs if using.


Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
Remove the foil and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden and bubbly.


Let the casserole cool for a few minutes before serving to allow it to set for easier slicing.
