Jeannie's Famous Potato Hamburger Casserole
In my book, this is a recipe to be used as a springboard for your own interpretation. I made it my way last night, and it was very, very good...as simple comfort food. I knew at a glance that the white sauce was wrong (and other reviewers found runny) so I used Cook's Illustrated classic white sauce: 1/4 cup butter, generous 1/4 cup flour, two cups chicken stock and 3/4 cup heavy cream. Perfect. I diced my onions for my toddler's sake and sauteed in bacon fat to pack some more flavor. I then removed them, sauteed the beef in 1 tbsp bacon fat as well and then combined the onions and beef. I par-boiled the potatoes and sliced them thin. Then I layered as directed using my white sauce and just eyeballing the cheese. I was a bit worried I might not have enough white sauce but it really spread out and expanded during cooking and was perfect. We really enjoyed this very much as I made it! Might add sauteed chopped spinach to the beef mixture next time -- not to improve the flavor but to sneak more veggies in my son...

Greek Steffotto
Hmm, this did nothing for me. I consider myself a very adventurous eater but the flavors were too strong (vinegar) and not very complex.
