Welcome to my blog! I have been intrigued by the idea of a blog for a while now. When I was a girl I always wanted to keep a diary. But, I would get one and keep up with it for a week or two. Hopefully I'll do better with this! This blog probably won't be especially exciting, but if you want to hear about what's going on at our house then just read on!

Kaycee's Easy Cheesy Potatoes, Beef, and Green Bean Casserole

This is one of my family's favorites. It's one of my favorites because it's so easy to make. I got the recipe off a box, but I have tweaked it.

One box of Au Gratin Potatoes (I buy Kroger brand)
1 lb ground beef
1 can french style green beans, drained
1 can cream of mushroom soup
shredded casserole cheese

Brown your ground beef, drain

Prepare your au gratin potatoes according to the oven directions on the box. Mix in soup, green beans, and ground beef.

Sprinkle cheese on top for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. I add about a cup of cheese - that's where the "cheesy" comes in. :)

I'm sure this is supposed to serve 6 or 8, but we rarely have leftovers.


  1. Sounds good! And easy! Thanks for sharing )

  2. Make sure you brown the beef! Sorry, I didn't make that clear.
