My mom used to make a casserole sometimes when it was cold that had layers of ground beef, sliced potatoes, and maybe sliced onion. It was filling and comforting on those cold San Diego evenings. She doesn't even remember what I'm talking about unfortunately! Can anybody help make my food memory a reality?

I'm 99% sure there was no "cream of" soup added as my mom doesn't like to cook with ingredients like that. Also I don't recall it being a particularly "wet" dish.

Here's something that I have made in the past that comes out real good.. it's filling, cheap to make and the leftovers are great. Normally I make a huge and ancient pyrex bowl of the stuff but you have to scale down as needed. I use 5 pounds of potatos.

Thin sliced potatos, sliced in the food processer or on a mandolin
cooked ground beef crumbles
thin slices onions
salt, pepper,flour and plenty of butter for each layer.
Evaporated milk
corn flake crumbs or plain bread crumbs for topping.

Start with Layering potatos, onions, ground beef, butter, flour, just sprinkle evenly over potatos.. salt and pepper.
Keep repeating ending with a top layer of the sliced potatos pour on evaporated milk untill baking dish is about 1/4 to 1/2 full top with more butter pats salt and pepper and Crumbs bake untill crumbs are browned.. a little more then an hour at 375.

This is in no way an exact recipe just something I seen grandma do since I was a little boy.

Leave out the onions and sub the beef for ground ham and you have escalloped potatos

Debsi what about making a roux of milk, flour S&P like you would for scalloped potatoes to pour over your layers? It wouldn't get wet or mushy since you didn't mention cheese it wouldn't be like augratin.

Those are some good ideas there. I guess I'll have to tinker and experiment with it... Thanks to both!
