    This is really great. I made two changes. First, I added just an bit more water to the soup. Then on the last layer, I mixed the meat and onion with the mushroom soup before pouring over the potatoes. Made assembly easier. My family thought it was delicious. - 7/19/09

    I'm glad so many of you like this recipe. As I said, my late aunt Gwen introduced me to this more than 10 years ago and it's been a favorite ever since. She was a fantastic cook and I know she's smiling on us all when we enjoy this! Thanks again!

    I really liked this dish. I did add a few extras to kick it up a notch though. Some mushrooms, red peppers and a little extra seasoning. Next time I think I will use turkey sausage links sliced thin instead of ground beef. Great recipe though!! - 12/7/09

    I had to modify a bit for time - I cubed my potatoes and nuked them, added to the beef and soup mix and stirred together - finished cooking on stovetop. Did whole thing in cast iron skillet. Foil over it at the end. Edges got crispy.
    still want to try the layers way - too little time after work - 4/2/10

    My husband loved this, and he is fairly picky! I only had to use 2 whole potatoes, so I also added about 1/2 cup of fat-reduced shredded cheddar cheese in the last 5-10 minutes of baking. It was terrific! - 5/18/10

    Was a little bland at first but after reading the comments I added a bit more spice to it. My husband suggested chili powder for a "kick" and that turned out great. We will be making this again and trying different seasonings. - 4/30/10

    Me & my boyrfriend (who isn't tryin to eat healthy) both loved it. Some of the potatoes were a little undercooked..will prob slice the slices in half next time. For seasonings I added pepper, italian seasoning, parsley, onion powder (because I didn't add real onions), & garlic. I added corn too. YUM - 5/26/10

    I increased the water to about 1/2 cup, added some extra spices that I like, and a clove of garlic. I also experimented with the recipe by using egglplant in half of the mixture instead of potatoes. Using eggplant instead of or in addition to potatoes is a very good variation! Super easy, thanks! - 9/4/11

    I've made this for years and I use turkey burger in place of ground beef. I also add green beans between layers and fat free or low fat monteray jack cheese on top. My family loves this! I read someones comment about adding corn and I am going to try it that way next time I make it. - 1/18/11

    Delicious,easy recipe. I added some thinly sliced carrots to the ground beef mixture and subsituted cream of chicken soup.I ended up making three layers because my potatoes were large so I had to add more water to the soup and i cooked it for an extra 30 mins. End result was a hit! Thanks! - 5/26/11

    This was really tasty and my husband loved it. I don't think I cut the potatoes thin enough because they were slightly undercooked after the 1hour bake. I'l definitely make it again! - 3/7/10

    I made this tonight and it was wonderful and easy! I did add salt and pepper, plus a little red pepper and garlic. I also did not have any onions so I added chopped dry onion to the ground beef. I used two cans of mushroom soup also. It was wonderful and my 6 year old gobbled it up. - 1/13/10

    I used milk in the soup instead of water, added red pepper chili flakes to the soup, topped with frozen peas and monterey jack cheese. I must say, "Delish"! Thx! - 3/8/11

    It was pretty good - I added about 4 cloves of garlic to the onion and meat. And also substituted half the ground beef for an equal amount of breakfast sausage. Yum. Threw in some mushrooms and frozen corn, used cream of chicken soup, and added paprika to the soup. My hubby and I both enjoyed it! - 12/2/10

    Tasty, easy, could benefit with more veggies. I mixed soup & water with beef for easy assembly, added oregano, garlic and parsley instead of salt, pepper. - 4/29/10

    Does the soup calories. Didn't see them added in on nutrition count. I am going to make this tomorrow night. Sounds delish.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    I have hamburger on my menu this week so I will definitely use this idea, but like the others I will add other veggies to make it a one dish meal. If it is too hot inside I will use the bbq on one side and cook some chicken on the other for later in the week! - 8/1/10
