  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • ⅛ cup milk
  • 1green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed French onion soup
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).


  • Step 2

    Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.

  • Step 3

    Mash potatoes and add 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, milk, green onion, and butter. Stir until mixed well.

  • Step 4

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet with flour and pepper until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in French onion soup and water.

  • Step 5

    Warm frozen peas in a small, microwave-safe bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir peas into the beef and soup mixture.

  • Step 6

    Pour the meat and soup mixture into the bottom of a glass casserole dish. Spread potatoes over the top using a rubber spatula. Top with remaining Cheddar cheese and sprinkle with more pepper.

  • Step 7

    Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
