Potato Beef Casserole Recipe

This comforting casserole from Sandra Jongs of Abbotsford, British Columbia is a snap to prepare. "To give this meat-and-potatoes meal a flavorful change of pace, I sometimes use cream of chicken soup instead," she adds.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 70 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
