Hamburger Potato Cheese Casserole Yummy


ingredients

6 large russet potatoes peeled and sliced about 1/3-1/2 inch thick
2 -3 tablespoons chopped onions
1 lb ground beef - really lean is preferable -
salt and pepper
cheese sauce - the same one I use for macaroni and cheese -
3 cups milk - I use skim -
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
7 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
ketchup - optional condiment -

directions

I use a 3 1/2 quart covered casserole dish for this this will stick unless you have a great non stick baking dish
preheat oven to 340
Brown hamburger and onion
place a layer of sliced potatoes in casserole dish top with half of hamburger onion mixture salt and pepper to taste - kind of depends on how salty your cheese sauce is - you can always salt it later if it needs it -
repeat layering of potato slices and hamburger mixture - and salt and pepper if desired -
make Cheese sauce
melt 4 T butter in saucepan over med high heat
add 3 T flour and the salt and pepper stir quickly to blend
add 3 cups milk stir with whisk to incorporate butter flour mixture
reduce heat stir till thickened and bubbly
remove from heat and add shredded cheddar stir until cheese melts
pour cheese sauce over hamburger and potatoes in baking dish push potatoes around to let cheese sauce into all of the crevices so it’s well coated
cover and place in oven bake for about 1 1/2 hours till potatoes are tender and top is browned I like to take off the lid for the last 25 minutes or so to brown the top a bit
even with the leanest ground beef this can get little pools of grease on top - I just spoon these off It doesn’t mean the whole thing is greasy - just cheesy
my family members consider generous amounts of ketchup a necessary addition to this dish I like it fine by itself - ok maybe a spot of ketchup on the side -
