This hamburger potato casserole is a flavorful and easy recipe. The final result is a cross between a baked goulash and beef stew. Between the onion soup mix and gravy mixes, there is plenty of seasoning. As this casserole cooks, the gravy thickens and the potatoes soak up all the flavor. The perfect weeknight meal.
