  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cook ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Drain excess grease. Season with garlic, salt and pepper. Stir in the onion soup, Worcestershire sauce and mustard, and bring to a boil. Mix together the cold water and flour, and stir into the sauce. Simmer over low heat for a few minutes, then set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, place potatoes in a saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for 3 minutes, not until tender. Drain.
  4. Spread half of the beef mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange half of the potatoes over the beef. Cover with a layer of mixed vegetables. Repeat layers.
  5. Cover the dish, and bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Uncover, and sprinkle shredded cheese over the top. Bake for an additional 10 minutes to melt cheese.

Yum! I didn't have worcestershire, but it came out ok. I did one layer of beef, a little cheese, one layer of potatoes, a little cheese, and a layer of veggies. Cooked. Then put cheese on top for 5 min. Delicious!

Nothing special. Very salty due to the French Onion Soup and very time consuming. Won't be making again.

I think this could be better. I didn't find it overly salty at all and thought the potatoes needed a little sprinkle of salt and pepper as they were layered in. The meat mixture had great taste, but is dry. The 3 layers are very distinct with nothing tying them together. It needs more gravy in my opinion. Thanks for the recipe.

This was ok. It makes very convenient leftovers to take to work.

This was very good. A tad salty,but you could probably skip the salt and pepper to solve that problem. I used oriental vegetables. Next time I think I'll just use broccoli and mushrooms.

It was pretty good, athough I used cream of cheese soup instead of onion soup. I'll try onion soup next time. Thanks for the recipe.

I am neutral on this one. It was Ok, but not spectacular to me. Now my husband loved it so it may be an inividual taste thing. It just seemed a bit bland.
