This simple recipe starts with browning 1 lb of lean ground beef with 1 cup of chopped onion.

The Hillbilly Kitchen chef adds a green bell pepper and salt and pepper to taste. The pepper is optional of course or can be substituted for any vegetable that you prefer.

You may see your family start to hover around the kitchen at this point.

Pour about a cup of milk on top of the mixture and put the lid on for about 15 minutes.

Add about a teaspoon of corn starch to the milk before you pour it over the meat and onion. The corn starch will help to thicken the liquid as will the potatoes.

Choose your cheese of choice and spread it on top of the mixture.

In the video, the chef uses provolone cheese. This recipe is very versatile so you can really make it your own.
