Best Ever Beef and Potatoes Casserole


This is a ground beef casserole with potatoes I threw together one night and everyone loved it. Casseroles are usually so bland, but the Dubliner® cheese really gives this casserole a big punch of flavor.

  • 6 large potatoes, peeled

  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 1 ½ cups shredded mild Cheddar cheese

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

  • cup shredded Irish Cheddar cheese (such as Dubliner®)

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 serving cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice potatoes into medium rounds.

  2. Heat vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Fry potato rounds until starting to turn brown, about 5 minutes per batch. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Set aside.

  3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic in the hot oil until onion turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ground beef and cook and stir until browned and no pink remains, 5 to 7 minutes more. Drain the pan.

  4. Combine beef mixture and cream of chicken soup in a large bowl. Add mild Cheddar cheese and stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Combine panko bread crumbs with 1/3 of the Irish Cheddar cheese and melted butter.

  6. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray and spread 1/2 of the potatoes in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the Irish Cheddar cheese. Cover with 1/2 of the beef mixture. Repeat with remaining potatoes, Irish Cheddar, and beef mixture. Top with panko mixture.

  7. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until browned and bubbly, about 30 minutes.
