  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 pound ground beef lean
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 bag mixed vegetables or vegetables of choice
  • 3 medium potatoes sliced thin, peeled russet or unpeeled Yukon Gold
  • 4 ½ cups Colby Jack or cheddar cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Sauté onions in olive oil until soft
  • Add ground beef, sea salt, garlic powder and pepper, and cook until no longer pink
  • Stir in beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and cream, then stir in mixed vegetables
  • Grease or spray a 13 X 9-inch casserole dish with cooking spray, and add layer of potatoes, then half of the beef mixture, and some cheese
  • Top with another layer of potatoes, remaining beef mixture and more cheese
  • Top with remaining potatoes and more cheese, loosely cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake until potatoes are tender and dish is bubbly, about 45 minutes total
  • Top with more cheese if needed, remove from oven, and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving


You can use peeled russet potatoes or unpeeled Yukon Gold potatoes cut approximately ¼ inch thick.
I used a 10 ounce bag of frozen mixed vegetables, slightly thawed, about 2 cups. You can use corn, peas or omit vegetables if preferred.
