Step 1

Season the ground beef with sea salt and pour tomato sauce to taste. Cook until beef turns dark brown in color and is moist.

Step 2

Boil all of the potatoes (peeled) for as long as it takes for you to be able to poke a fork easily through them.

Step 3

Shred the cheese while the potatoes boil and set aside.

Step 4

Remove the potatoes. In a bowl, mash them with some butter and the potato juice from the boiling pot. (You can turn off the stove by now!)

Step 5

Now that all is prepared, in a glass rectangular pan, place all of the beef on the bottom and try to even it out so that it can cover any open space.

Step 6

Add the mashed potatoes on top (very slowly) and spoon around with a big wooden spoon to make it even.

Step 7

Use your hands to top with cheddar and place in the oven for about 30 mins on 320*F or 325*F.

The trick is to make sure the cheese stays yellow and does not get burned. So if you notice the cheese starting to get brown, lower the heat by 20*F.
