This is a delightful and great lunch or dinner idea you can make in almost no time. If you prefer the taste of potatoes and meat, this mousaka-inspired dish promises a lot. Even your kids will crave this recipe because it’s that good. The preparation time will take only 20 minutes. You must brown the ground beef with the onion and cook on the stove for 10 minutes. Then, layer the potatoes in a casserole pan and top them with the cooked beef mixture. 

Then it’s time for the cheese. Everyone loves cheese; this recipe will be much faster with lots of cheese. The more cheese you will use, the taster it will be. 

Why you’ll love the recipe

It’s a comforting meal that is cheap and so easy to put together. You can involve your kids too in the preparation time to help you layer the potatoes while you prepare the ground beef mixture. How fun is that?
