    30 oz potatoes, 1.5 - 2 lbs browned ground beef, 4 cups sharp cheddar cheese, 3 cups sour cream, ½ cup onion, 1 tablespoon mushroom bullion base, 1 tablespoon garlic
  • cover and cook on low for 4 - 6 hours
  • about 15 minutes prior to serving, remove lid and sprinkle remaining shredded cheese on top. Re-cover and allow cheese to melt.


Ground beef should be browned before adding it to this recipe.  If you add raw beef, your final dish will be very greasy.  
Ground turkey can be used in the place of ground beef
