A hearty and comforting dish perfect for a cozy dinner. Layers of seasoned ground beef, tender potatoes, and melted cheese create a satisfying meal that’s sure to please the whole family.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned and cooked through, breaking it apart with a spoon as it cooks. Drain any excess grease.
  3. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet with the ground beef. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the onion is softened.
  4. Season the beef mixture with paprika, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.
  5. Arrange half of the sliced potatoes in an even layer at the bottom of the greased baking dish.
  6. Spoon half of the seasoned ground beef mixture over the potatoes, spreading it out evenly.
  7. Repeat the layers with the remaining potatoes and ground beef mixture.
  8. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
  9. Remove the foil and sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole. Return the dish to the oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired, before serving. Enjoy your savory ground beef and potato bake hot out of the oven!
