"This is so easy and inexpensive and quick to put together. I use a glass 8x8 or a small rectangle baking dish. The layers show through the glass and look very inviting. If you want to use a 9x13 baking dish, just double everything."

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook and stir the ground beef until the meat is crumbly and evenly browned. Drain and discard any excess grease. Transfer the beef to an 8x8-inch baking dish.
  3. Layer about 1/4 of the onion on top of the beef, then spread the grated potatoes over the onion. Season with salt and pepper. Spread another 1/4 of the onion over, then layer the carrots on top. Season with salt and pepper again. Add another layer of onion, then cover with the corn. Season with salt and pepper, then top with the remaining onion. Spread the green beans over the onion, then arrange the bacon slices on top. Cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, then remove the foil and continue baking until the bacon is crisp and the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes more.

This creamy potato casserole with a crispy crust is great for brunch or dinner.


  • Cook's Note
  • I have made this so many times, and each time it seems I do something different. The one thing that is always a hit is adding sliced mushrooms. I have added a can of tomato sauce. I add the foil on top because by the time the dish is cooked, the bacon is usually overcooked. I have also seasoned the ground meat with an envelope of taco seasoning and added a can of beans such as kidney beans, black beans or pinto beans to replace the green beans.

Just served this to the family tonight...everyone loved it. They said it was a variation on Shepherd's Pie. I made mine with meatloaf mix instead of just beef...I will add ground lamb next time too. I will put the dish under the broiler for a couple of minutes to crisp the bacon more...the bacon was cooked but not crisp (still very good though)

This needed more seasonings. My husband said it was very bland but when I heated the leftovers and added some Italian Seasoning and other herbs, he ate three helpings. Also an 8X8 would not hold everything. I cut everything but ground beef and onion in half and the 8X8 was full.


Thank you for sharing your recipe Kitten. We enjoyed it and will make again - it is a keeper! I made just a few minor changes/additions. I browned a pound of ground chuck and about two sausage patties in my cast iron dutch oven. There was about 2 tablespoons of grease so I drained that off. Then I layered everything as instructed. In addition to the salt and pepper I sprinkled garlic salt and cayenne pepper between the layers. I cut the bacon into bite-sized pieces and laid it on the top. I put the lid on the dutch oven and baked for 40 minutes, removed the lid and baked 20 more and then broiled the top for about 5. What an economical and easy recipe - easy to prepare, bake and clean-up!
