INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Peel (if desired) and thinly slice the potatoes. Set aside.
  2. Cook the Ground Beef:
    • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef and onion until the meat is browned and the onion is soft. Drain any excess fat.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Prepare the Creamy Sauce:
    • In a bowl, mix together the condensed soup, milk, and sour cream until smooth.
  4. Assemble the Casserole:
    • In a greased 9×13 inch baking dish, layer half of the sliced potatoes.
    • Spread half of the cooked ground beef over the potatoes.
    • Pour half of the creamy sauce over the beef and potatoes.
    • Repeat the layers with the remaining potatoes, beef, and sauce.
    • Sprinkle the top with shredded cheddar cheese and a dash of paprika or dried herbs if using.
  5. Bake:
    • Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
    • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden and bubbly.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the casserole cool for a few minutes before serving to allow it to set for easier slicing.
