Beefy Hash Brown Bake Recipe

Publisher Photo
A topping of french-fried onions provides a little crunch to this meaty main dish from Rochelle Boucher of Brooklyn, Wisconsin. "Since this casserole is practically a meal in itself, I simply accompany it with a fruit salad and dessert," she relates.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 23, 2013

A HUGE hit with my family!! I did have to improvise a little with what I had available. Use frozen Potatoes O'Brien in place of hash browns and just broccoli for the mixed vegetables. Such a versatile dish - a modified shepherd's pie of sorts - but just fabulous! Esp when the family goes back for seconds and thirds!! Definitely a keeper!

This recipe has been a "thumbs up" family favorite standby for years. We lovingly call it the Cardiac Casserole. I always double (and sometimes triple) the recipe so that the family has left overs for lunches to take to work. Its a thrifty meal and the individual servings also freeze well.
