For the béchamel sauce, combine melted butter and all-purpose flour on low heat. Cook for a minute and remove lumps. Pour cool milk little by little, let it simmer, and thicken. Add a pinch of salt, then continue stirring until it gently simmers. Grate some fresh nutmeg over the sauce.

Step 4:

Grease the baking dish with butter and start layering the potatoes, sprinkle with seasoning salt, smoked paprika, cracked black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and shredded cheddar cheese. Pour the ground beef mixture on top then spread evenly. Drizzle béchamel sauce on the ground beef and sprinkle the rest of the cheddar cheese.
