Burger 'n' Fries Pot Pie/Casserole

The first time I ate this it reminded me of upside down chili cheese fries more than a burger and fries.  If you like chili cheese fries, you will LOVE this meal.

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
Garlic, salt, pepper - to taste
2 Tablespoons flour
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 cups frozen shoestring French fries

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  In a non-stick skillet, cook beef, onion, and seasonings over medium-high heat for 8 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked.  Drain well and return to skillet. Sprinkle with flour and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Add in tomatoes; heat to boiling.  Remove from heat.

In a 1 1/2-quart casserole or 8x8" square dish, spread meat mixture.  Sprinkle with cheese then layer fries on top.  Bake for 20 minutes or until potatoes are browned. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Personal note:  I think this would be fantastic with some cooked, crumbled bacon added in.  May also taste good with typical burger condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish, etc.) added on top once served.
