“I would always ask my mom 'What's for dinner?' and the response would be 'I don't know.' I said I was going to make up a dish called 'I don't know' dish. It turned out pretty good. Ground beef, potatoes and cheese are layered with a few vegetables in this simple one dish meal.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the mixed vegetables and mushroom soup. Set aside.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring to break up large lumps. Drain excess grease from the beef and place in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour the vegetable mixture over the beef, then arrange the potato slices over the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle cheese over the top.
  4. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted and the dish is heated through and bubbly.

I use this recipe often but instead of potatoes, i use cornbread to top it and bake till cornbread is done. My family loves it



My family loved this recipe. I doubled this for my large family size, and added about 1 cup of milk to the vegy/soup mixture. I also sprinkled cooked/crumbled bacon over the beef once it was in the baking dish. The bacon makes all the difference. Thanks, I will make this again.

Mom made this when my sister and I were kids. Instead of using frozen mixed veggies, Mom would use frozen broccoli. She also doubled the cheese. I want to say she added whatever spices she had on hand as well and added a soup can of milk. Great to make to take a walk down memory lane, but needs a little more gussied up for me now.
