Hamburger Potato Casserole

My mother made this recipe often.  It’s a great way to stretch a pound of ground beef (mince to my UK readers) and generally goes over well with kids.  It can also be frozen if you bake it before freezing.  Do not freeze uncooked potatoes.


1 pound ground beef or ground turkey

1 small onion, diced or 1/3 cup dehydrated minced onion

4-5 medium sized potatoes, peeled and sliced

1-10 ounce can condensed vegetable soup

1 soup can of water

1 cup of peas, fresh or frozen (optional)

Cook and stir the ground meat & onion (if using fresh onion) until done.  Place it into a greased or sprayed two quart oven proof casserole.  Add the sliced potatoes and peas.  Pour the soup over the top and then the can of water.  Cover and bake at 375 degrees Farenheit for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the potatoes are done.  Serves about 5-6 people.

You can substitute 2-15 ounce cans of ready to eat vegetable soup and omit the water if condensed soup is not available.

I finally understand

"Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and your example, you produce a first circle, and it another, and another, and another, wider each time. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?" St. Josemarie Escriva: The Way
