Reviews for Beef Potato Bake
"Making this great sounding dish for dinner tonight! Have all ingredients in~~ will halve recipe though since just the two of us"
"Browned the ground beef with chopped onion and used heart healthy soups and decreased cheese - still delish!"
"I make this using Campbell's healthy Request Soups and omit the mushrooms. I also use half 2% cheese and half regular cheese. My husband & I like the convenience of having a homemade (frozen)meal on a busy week night. This recipe is a keeper at our house!!"
"Yummy comfort food! I cook the entire meal in a 13"x9" dish. I substitute crm of chicken for the crm of celery soup, substitute a small chopped onion for the dried onion, and use half cheddar (2 cups) and half sharp cheddar (2 cups)."
"Super simple for a night when you don't have alot of time to make dinner. Kids loved it."
"I use the healthy Request Cream of mushroom and add in garlic when cooking the beef."
"This was great! I added a few scoops of sour cream, several drops of tabasco, and canned chestnuts for a bit of crunch. Stepped up the taste just a tad!"
"This was delicious! I used potatoes cubed that I preboiled. I also sauteed an onion and fresh mushrooms. I will definetely make this again."
