Meat & Potato Casserole

Sharing is caring!

What could be better than a family favorite Meat & Potato Casserole for some tasty stick-to-the-ribs hot comfort food?

My family refers to this recipe as simply “The Casserole”. My cousin came to our home and prepared this recipe for us when my baby girl was born many years ago. It has been a family favorite since.

The original recipe has transitioned through the years to include some favorite additions like mushrooms and onions sometimes.

Basic Ingredients for Meat & Potato Casserole

We are cooking for two so I always make a small casserole. I have been known to double the ingredients so we would have enough leftovers for the next day. We love this casserole at my house!

As you might imagine, this casserole is even better when you cook the potatoes from scratch. The beauty of a casserole is the simplicity and ease of preparation when using canned foods especially for busy cooks! We are all busy cooks these days, right?!
