"I came up with this the day before payday, trying to come up with something using only the ingredients I had on hand. Turns out, it's now a favorite anyone who tries it. You can also adjust the ingredients according to what you have in the cabinet and your family's personal tastes. Enjoy!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium heat. Season with salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, poultry seasoning, and thyme. Cook, stirring to crumble, until evenly browned. Drain, and transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish, or large casserole dish.
  3. Arrange 2 layers of sliced potato over the ground beef, seasoning each layer with salt and pepper. Melt butter in the skillet over medium heat, and saute the onions and mushrooms until tender. Spread over the top of the potatoes.
  4. Stir just enough water into the soup to make it pourable, and spoon over the top of the casserole, making sure to spread out evenly. Scatter the cracker crumbs over the top, and sprinkle with paprika. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake for about 1 hour in the preheated oven, until the potatoes are soft. Remove the aluminum foil, and return to the oven to brown the top, about 10 minutes.

This was great for that day before payday meal. And you really can change it up according to what you have on hand. Las time I made it I had no potatoes and used pasta. It was still tasty . Than...

Great recipe!!! Easy to substitute ingredients. Instead of crackers use cheez-its. It's super yummy and easy clean-up. (add some melted cheese during browning time!)

I love this as a "base recipe" - if you use your imagination, and whatever happens to be in the cupboard, the possibilities are endless. I added a serrano pepper (seeds and all) to the sauteein...

this was simple and good! it was a great change to all of the holiday food we've been eating!

I didn't use the mushrooms since my husband doesn't like. Also didn't cook the onions before baking. The poultry seasoning was a bit much & too overpowering. The paprika I would have left off al...

I cooked this recipe exactly how it was written. It had a great smell, but I did not like the taste. I did not care for this at all; however my husband tolerated it. The leftovers were still in ...
