Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 1 hr 40 mins
Servings: 8


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt (to taste)
  • Black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded, divided)
  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (thinly sliced)
  • ½ cup Monterey jack cheese (shredded)
  • Fresh parsley (for garnish)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray the inside of a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large skillet set over medium heat, add beef and onion and cook until no longer pink, 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat, drain off any excess grease, and stir in garlic, Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine condensed soups, milk, sour cream, Italian seasoning, and ½ cup cheddar cheese.
  • Spread ½ cup of the soup mixture in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  • Arrange ⅓ of the sliced potatoes in a shingled layer in the baking dish. Top with half of the meat, then pour on half of the sauce, spreading it evenly. Repeat with remaining ingredients to create a second layer. Layer on the remaining potatoes, then sprinkle on the rest of the cheese.
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil, place on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake for 80 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender and cheese is melted.
  • Allow to sit for 10 minutes, then garnish with parsley and serve.
