This swift savory supper from Margaret Schroeder of Cudahy, Wisconsin is so full of down-home taste that no one will believe it's so easy. Canned tomato soup and packaged au gratin potatoes are baked with ground beef to create the comforting casserole.

"This tasted good to me- it's very homey and comforting. We added a little shredded cheddar cheese on the top."

"I changed this recipe up alot! I added three garlic pieces, diced mushrooms, salt and pepper, changed the water for the milk and then dropped the ingredients inside a pie shell. It was great! The whole family ate it up!"

"WAY too salty. I ended up turning the leftovers into a soup, and it still wasn't the biggest hit in my house. I won't be making it again."

"My kids hate casseroles. This one they not only liked but went back for more. I did modify it slightly. I baked it for 35 min then sprinkled mozzarella cheese on the top and baked it for 10 more min."

"Generally my husband is not fond of boxed au gratin potatoes. I had a box in the house and wanted to use it up, so decided to give this recipe a try. I am happy to report he really enjoyed this dish. Thank you for sharing!"
