    1. 1
      Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with water to cover by 1 inch.

      Add a generous pinch of salt and cook for 15 minutes, or until tender; do not overcook.
    3. 3
      Drain the potatoes and arrange them in a 9 x 9 inch casserole dish.
    4. 4
      While potatoes are cooking, in large skillet, combine the beef and onion and cook together over medium heat until the beef is browned and the onion softened, 12-15 minutes.

      Pour off excess fat.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    7. 7
      Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and whisk in flour to make a roux.
    8. 8
      Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture bubbles and the flour turns light brown in color.
    9. 9
      Gradually whisk in the milk and continue to stir while cooking over medium heat.
    10. 10
      When the mixture thickens, whisk in the salt and pepper, then stir in the cheese and browned beef.
    11. 11
      Pour the ground beef mixture over the potatoes and bake the casserole for 20 minutes until heated through and bubbling.
    12. 12
      Stir the casserole gently.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle a little more cheddar cheese on top, if desired, and the bread crumbs on top of the casserole and bake until the crumbs are toasted, about 5 minutes longer.

      The whole family liked this recipe after we added just a bit more salt and pepper at the table. Hubby and I thought it needed just a little more "sauce" to it. It was wonderful as leftovers too!

      Good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written. We all enjoyed it and I liked that it was made with ingredients I normally have on hand.
