Prepare to drool because I guarantee you will be hungry after this one.
This is a Cheesy Casserole Loaf With Scalloped Potatoes, Ground Beef, Tomatoes & Spinach prepared in a loaf pan. Look around your kitchen, chances are you have one. Which means you can make this casserole!
Here’s what you’ll need for this delicious recipe:
- 5 large potatoes
- 5 oz sliced cheese
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 tsp paprika
- 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 8 oz fresh spinach leaves
- 2 tbsp parsley to garnish
You can find them all at your local supermarket. And I promise you it’s so worth the trip. Let’s begin!
Make sure that oven’s clean. Preheat to 375°F.
Peel the potatoes then cut them into thin slices. Grease a 12 x 4-inch loaf pan and line the bottom and sides of it with the sliced potatoes. If you’re new to the kitchen, there are videos on how to peel potatoes and how to grease a pan. Don’t worry!
Cover those potatoes with slices of cheese.
Cook the onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat. Go ahead and add the ground beef then season with paprika. Can you imagine the smell now? I sure can.
Throw in the diced tomatoes and season everything in the pan with salt and pepper. Add the spinach leaves before you let it all simmer for about ten minutes. Enough time for a bathroom break or a quick social media check.

When those ten minutes are over, grab a spoon and scoop some of the ground beef mixture over the cheese.
Now cover the beef mixture with more potato slices, followed by more slices of cheese.
Put more of the beef mixture on top. Continue our layering until you reach the top of the potatoes on the side. Then push more potato slices down on both sides to make a higher layer.
Cover the casserole with more potato slices. That’s a lot of potatoes but it’s going to be so delectable!
Cook your creation for seventy minutes. When that’s done, let it cool a bit then go on and garnish with parsley. Now that’s an Instagram worthy shot!
Even the viewers are salivating!
“The first one,when you flipped it over from the loaf pan.I actually groaned out load, rubbing my tummy and licking my lips. That looked sooooo delicious.”
I think we all did. Another viewer says,
“Absolutely stunning! Looks awesome and delicious!! Thanks once again Scrumdidlyumptious!!”
Cooking does not have to be complicated or expensive.
As for a drink that goes well with this dish? That’s entirely up to you. Though a nice bottle of red wine would hit the spot when you look at the cheese and beef. Beer could work, just pick the right one.
Your family will love this dish. Get cooking!
