My family enjoys this casserole. I add a can of mushroom soup to the meat, as well as garlic. I then put all of the mashed potatoes on top of the meat and cover everything with grated cheddar cheese. It is yummy.

This is a great basic recipe. My hubby is a meat and potatoes guy so by changing this a little he loved it. I added a small can of chopped mushrooms, and a 1/2 can of cream of muchroom soup. You can use more of the soup if you like but it may make the consistency thinner. I also used a box(2packages)of the herb and butter flavored instant potatoes instead of boiling the 6 large. I also added the pretty hefty layer of Velveeta after the first layering of the meat and potatoes, and finished the dish with shredded cheddar cheese then baked until the cheese was golden brown. Will definitely make again. Laurie H.

Great recipe! I also know this one as Shepherd's Pie. One in our family can't have cheese, so I made a nice serving of gravy from the drippings and spooned plenty over the meat layers. I used 1 lb. each hamburger and sausage, and added a few cloves garlic, 1 T. sage and a couple shakes of Tony's (creole seasoning) while browning meat. With these additions, I had no problems with flavor! There are so many variations you could make of this (adding veggies, soups, sour cream?) - I'll definitely make it again!

Very good and simple recipe. Hubby loved it! I did as others suggested and cut back a bit. I used only 1 1/4 lb. of ground beef and 4 large baked potatoes (peeled and chopped), and it fit perfectly in a 9x13 casserole dish. I also spiced up the meat, onion, bell pepper mixture with about 1 tsp. of worchestershire sauce and some steak seasoning, as well as sliced baby portabella mushrooms. I also made garlic mashed potatoes instead of just regular mashed potatoes. And I also did as other suggested and added cheese. I made two layers each of beef mixture, mashed potato mixture and then shredded cheddar cheese. Thanks for the recipe! Will certainly make again.

This is the second time I have tried this recipe. The first time didn't turn out to well because I didn't use enough ground beef and cheese, but had too many potatos. ::chuckling:: The second time I used 2 1/2 pounds of ground beef and alot more cheese. (Like it was suggested, I put a layer of cheese after the first layer of meat and potatos.) The two layers of cheese is amazing. Be careful with the green pepper. The more it is cooked, the more "water" it will produce. I would suggest using 1/2 the green pepper and dicing it up. Then again, I'm not the best cook, so I'm sure there are others that know of different thickening agents to use.'s incredibly tasty and will be used many times in the Bachelor's life. :-)

Great recipe, Pat!.....Quick and Easy. I did add 1 teaspoon chopped garlic to the meat while browning. I also added 2 eggs to the meat and the potato seemed to make it hold together a little better. This recipe is supposed to serve 8, but my husband ate 1/2 of it himself!

very good and easy..i made a little adjustments to the recipe. i made it with turkey meat mixed gravey add thyme and made peas and carrots. I layered meat and then the vegtables, potatoes and instead of layering the cheese i mixed it with the potatoes. At the end of the layering I grated the cheese on top of it. very good.. alittle tip use half of pepper. The whole family loved it.
