I chose this recipe based on its ingredients. Overall it was delicious and very satisfying. A few comments: Taste: I could tell from the recipe that if I made it as printed it might be a bit bland. So I added garlic to the beef/onion mixture and I also added chili powder cumin and garlic powder. Prep time: It took me a LOT longer than 15 minutes to prepare. I don't cook every day but I've been cooking since I was a kid and I am pretty comfortable with a potato peeler and chopping knife. Unless you are quite a chef count on maybe twice as long for prep. Covering: I wish I had left it covered for more than the first hour... the top did get rather dried out. But maybe my oven is too hot. Tomato soup: This added a really good taste! But it didn't go very far. Next time I might use twice as much. This is a really wholesome recipe and it gives you a lot of opportunity to modify it the way you like. In addition to the spices I melted cheese on top at the end of the cooking and I served it topped with some sour cream. Yum!
This is a very good recipe. I did not have tomato soup so I used a can of tomato sauce and a can of rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilis) I am also lazy so I did not peel the potatoes. I think next time I will cook the bacon before putting it in the oven because it was just a little greasy. Over all a good dish.
This recipe was a huge disappointment. It has potential but needs changes; if I ever make this again I would mix the tomato soup throughout the meat mixture since only the top had flavor and the layers below were dry. I would also coook this on a much higher setting like 425 since the potatoes were still hard after an hour of baking on 350. The only redeeming quality was the flavor on the top where the soup was poured on.
From the "author": allrecipes takes "liberties" with the recipes, which is fine but if you want it to be the way I make it... I do not cook the ground beef and onion before adding to the recipe, and the potatoes are peeled and sliced approx 3/16" thick, not diced. It goes: Mix finely chopped onion into ground beef. Put a layer of half of the sliced potatoes, then half of the ground beef/onion mixture pulled into marble sized bits and scattered over the potatoes, then half of the kidney beans with juice, then salt and pepper, repeat layers. Top with condensed tomato soup then bacon slices. Then bake as directed. Hope this helps...
I made several adjustments to the basic recipe. I used only 1 pd of hamburger. I also used 2 cans of condensed tomato soup. I used one huge can of kidney beans and one regular sized can. I melted cheese on top of the casserole toward the last 10 min of the recipe and then used the broiler for 5 min to crisp and brown the cheese. We love garlic so I put a whole lot of that in there. I threw in a bit of chili powder and ground cayenne pepper as well. Turned out delish.
