These baked potatoes are covered in a hamburger gravy, and topped with shredded cheese. Use your favorite kind of cheese if you do not care for Cheddar. You can reduce cooking time by baking potatoes in the microwave, but it just isn't the same.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place potatoes directly on the oven rack, and bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until tender.

  • While the potatoes are baking, place ground beef and onion in a large skillet, and cook over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Drain grease, then stir in the soup and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat through until bubbly, then set aside and wait for the potatoes.

  • When the potatoes are ready, reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the potatoes into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and split them in half lengthwise. Break up the centers of the potatoes with a fork, then pour the ground beef mixture over the top. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted.

These are so easy. They are great because the ingredients are always on hand. I like to make a little extra because we really like meat. I also wrapped the potatoes in foil with butter and garlic salt while I baked them. Read More

fast and easy! I diced and fried my potatoes in oil rather than baked them due to time and it was great! Read More

This was a decent little meat and potato recipe.. It's definitely budget friendly and who doesn't like meat and potatoes?! The only thing I did different was I added 3 minced garlic with the onions ( I love garlic) and I added mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar cheese (cause that's all I had on hand).. I think I will use cheddar next time.. I also noticed the potatoes tasted better if you let them sit for a few min. when they come out of the oven before serving them. I also made a side salad to go along with the potatoes. Read More

This was really good. I added a little more cream soup than called for since I had some extra in the fridge to use up. I cut the onion to half. This was a great easy meal that my husband raved over. Thanks for sharing this is a real keeper! Read More

I made this with some changes. I will try it another time using the baked potaotes. I had some frozen cubed hash brown potatoes that I wanted to use up so I used this instead of the baked potatoes. I sprayed the baking dish with Pam and spread the potatoes on the bottom. Baked this at 350 while I browned my meat and onions. I used 1 can cream of chicken soup and about 3/4 can of water. I added some Worcestershire sauce to the mixture. I also used about 1 tsp. of the garlic powder. Combined with the ground beef then poured over top of the potatoes and topped with cheese baked for about 15 more min. It was very tasty! My kids just devoured this. This recipe is very easy to play with and add what seasonings you like! Read More

YUMMY!! These were so good! I kept to the recipe except that i only had small Yukon potatoes so i arranged 5 small potatoes together to resemble one bigger potato and poured the mixture over. Definitely comfort food! Thanks for the recipe! Read More
