" This is a quick, easy and tasty casserole. Even my grandkids ask for second helpings! It includes fresh onions and potatoes layered with ground beef in a creamy sauce. "
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 5 potatoes - peeled and cubed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • paprika to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


Heat a large skillet over medium heat and pour in oil. Saute onion in oil until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside. In the same skillet over medium heat, saute the ground beef for 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned.


Place a layer of potatoes into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and then spread a layer of ground beef over the potatoes, followed by a layer of onions.


Repeat layers, ending with potatoes. In a medium bowl, combine the soup with the water. Mix well and pour over the casserole mixture. Sprinkle with paprika to taste.


Cover pan and bake in preheated oven for 1 hour.
