Cut the potatoes in a round shape for about a quarter-inch thick. Submerge in cold water, add chicken bouillon powder or salt, then let it boil in medium heat for a minute. Remove the potatoes and run under cold water.
In a pan, put the ground beef, salt, and pepper, sauté and cook until beef turns brown. Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, smoked paprika, dried chives, dried parsley, and garlic. Melt the butter on the ground beef mixture before adding all-purpose flour, combine and cook for a minute. Pour the beef broth then bring to a simmer and let it thicken.
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.
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.
Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F uncovered for around 35 to 40 minutes until it starts bubbling and the top has browned.
