Start with potato slices for a beef casserole so good, you'll be asked to make it every week

Print this recipe
This cheesy potato hamburger casserole is easy to make and bakes for one hour before you add shredded cheese to melt on top. It's a great weeknight meal to make so that when it's baking, you can get other work done.
This is probably my husband's favorite meal. There's something about ground beef, onions, mushrooms, creamy soup and cheese that many people love. Once you make this meal, you'll probably be asked to make it every single week — it's that good.
