How To Make Hamburger Potato Casserole

First off you start by heating a skillet and adding your onions and cooking until it is tender.

Then add your ground beef and cook until it is all brown, and drain the grease.

Then in the same skillet, you want to add in the butter and melt it. Follow it by the flour, and whisk to make a roux. Then slowly mix in 3 cups of milk and add the cream.

Simmer on low for around 10 minutes so the sauce can thicken. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour a little sauce in the bottom of the 9x13 pan and start alternating layers of potato, onions, ground beef, cheese, and sauce.

Aim to make 2-3 layers of each.

  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 5 potatoes thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onions until tender; set aside. Cook ground beef until evenly brown and then drain excess grease. Set aside.
  • Using the same skillet, melt butter and then add flour. Stir with a whisk to combine, making a roux. Gradually whisk in 3 cups of milk and then add in the cream. Simmer while frequently stirring over medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
