cost per recipe: $7.59

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cups frozen fried potato nuggets
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 green onion, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)


  • Tips

    • Make Ahead Freezer Meal: Cook the beef mixture as directed and transfer to a baking pan. Let cool completely, wrap tightly and freeze.  Top with frozen potatoes before baking.  From frozen, bake, uncovered, for 50 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown.  Or, thaw in the refrigerator, bake, uncovered, for 35 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown.  Top with the tomato and green onions.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 425°F.  While the oven is heating, cook the beef and onion in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup, ketchup and Worcestershire in the skillet.  Top with the potatoes.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown.  Sprinkle with the cheese.  Top with the tomato and green onions just before serving.

    I first had this at a potluck 30 years ago. The person who brought it said it is easy: brown the hamburger, add cream of mushroom soup, seasonings of your choice, vegetables, cheese and taters on top. I’ve made it dozens of times over the years. Used leftover veggies and frozen ones. I actually prefer cream of chicken soup. On a low sodium diet so use the Heart Healthy soups, and onion powder, garlic powder, etc. we love this it’s so versatile.

    I absolutely love this dish. However I usually make a double batch because I and my family are big eaters. One time I didnt have Worcestershire sauce but i substituted soy, lemon juice, sugar and a dash each of hot sauce and garlic powder turned out just as good! would recommend for the solo college student looking for a make ahead meal

  • Mmm mmm good

    Good recipe. I double up recipe, except for Tator tots. I add two cans of mixed vegetables, 1 cup of milk, and cheddar cheese in the casserole, and on top the last 15 mins cooking.
