Kittencal's Scalloped Potato and Ground Beef Casserole

Kittencal's Scalloped Potato and Ground Beef Casserole created by DeliciousAsItLooks

Sliced potatoes in a delicious creamy sauce on the bottom then topped with a ground beef mixture --- instead of layering the potatoes you can just mix them with the sauce in a large bowl transfer to the baking dish then top with the ground beef mixture either way is fine but the potatoes will cook a little faster if mixed with the sauce --- feel free to throw in some cooked chopped green beans, mushrooms, corn niblets to the ground beef mixture or whatever you wish, I also like sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese over the potato mixture before topping with the ground beef and then again after the casserole has been cooked, this casserole is very versatile and you don't have to worry about the exact amounts --- to save time you may cook the ground beef mixture a day ahead and refrigerate, all ingredients may be reduced to half if desired to yield 4-6 and baked in a smaller baking dish--- NOTE some of the reviewers are stating that the potatoes are taking a long time to cook so you may want to pop them in the microwave first just to soften slightly,

ingredients

directions

  • In a skillet cook the ground beef with onion, bell pepper and chili flakes (if using) until no longer pink; drain fat over a colander.
  • Return to pan and add in garlic, season salt and black pepper; cook stirring with a wooden spoon until the meat is lightly browned (I usually add in about 1-2 tablespoons bacon fat that I keep frozen in my freezer to the meat while browning for added flavor and it also helps to brown the meat) set aside.
  • For the sauce; in a medium bowl mix together the undiluted soup with onion, milk, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, seasoned salt and black pepper to taste; mix well to combine.
  • In a greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish or a large oval casserole dish, alternately layer the sliced potatoes on bottom of the baking dish, then soup mixture (I like to sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top of the soup mixture) then the ground beef mixture on top.
  • Since this is a large casserole I strongly suggest to place the baking dish on a jelly-roll sheet in case of any spills.
  • Bake covered with foil for about 1 hour at 350 degrees F.
  • Uncover and continue baking for another 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender (baking time will vary depending on the thickness of your sliced potatoes).
  • Remove from oven then sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese; return to oven for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

    Delicious! I cut this down to serve 4 and we loved it. Tried to find your beef and tater tot casserole but couldn't find it. Made this instead, good choice.

    I looked all through the reviews hoping someone had tried this with boxed scalloped potatoes to no avail. So, I made it with my tweaks and it came out delish! But I think with all my tweaks it was really a spin off and not the same. Here’s what I did: 2 boxes of scalloped potatoes Browned HB meat Added about 2 cups seasoning blend and 1 cup of fiesta frozen corn with the other spices the recipe called for including the garlic. Added 2.5 cups of water and 1.5 cups of milk along with the cream of chicken, sour cream, and the cheese packets and mixed. Added Parmesan cheese then baked at 350 for 1 hour 20 minutes. Next time I’ll increase oven temp to cook a little faster. It was VERY tasty! And is all gone!
