Cheesy Potato Casserole

6 medium potatoes, sliced
21 oz. 90% lean ground beef
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 med. yellow onion, chopped (Image)
1 c. mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp. garlic, minced (Image)
2 c. skim milk
2 eggs
1/2 c. Parmesan, grated
4-1/2. cheddar cheese, shredded

Slice potatoes.

In a large skillet, saute onion and mushroom in olive oil until onion is translucent. Add ground beef and continue cooking until meat is browned. Drain any excess liquid/fat.

While meat is browning, in a 1-2 qt. saucepan, beat the eggs into the milk until thoroughly mixed. Turn heat on low and add cheeses. Stir constantly until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.

Put potatoes and beef mixture into a 10" x 15" x 2" (or 4 qt) flat baking dish, mixing them up well.

Pour cheese mixture over the top. Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes or until potatoes are tender. (To speed up the baking process, boil the potato slices for 10 minutes, while browning the meat, before adding to baking dish. This will reduce the time by 15 min.).

Serves 15 as main dish (more as a side dish)
