This recipe is such a hit it's "traveled" all over the country! My mother originated the recipe in Pennsylvania...I brought it to Texas when I married...I'm still making it in California...and my daughter treats her friends to this "oldie" in Colorado. It's hearty yet simple to prepare. —Helen Carmichall, Santee, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2014

"Growing up, we used to call this "Shipwreck Mix-Up". Such fond memories eating this. I'll be making this REALLY soon!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2014

"I found this casserole very bland and a bit watery. Next time I will try to do as suggested and use scallop potatoes plus onion soup mix. I did brown the meat and onions, but still had no flavor. Sukie"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 20, 2014

"I have to agree with some, it was a little bland and seemed like it was lacking something. I even added garlic which helped. Maybe a little sauce would thicken it and hold the ingredients. The idea was good but I would not make again as is. By the way, I used smaller red potatoes and did not peel. Quick and easy."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 13, 2014

"First off, the prep time is totally inaccurate. Pealing and slicing 4 pounds of potatoes takes 30 minutes. In fact, that was way too many potatoes.. So the actual prep time is about 45 minutes if you are using fresh ingredients. This dish is very bland, requires a lot of salt and pepper, and that amount of salt is just not healthy. Also very runny. And the answer to the constant question here, brown the hamburger first with the onion."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 11, 2014

"This was pretty good. Needed a lot of salt and kept feeling like it was missing something else. My husband had two servings so he liked it. I did brown the ground beef first, before layering. and I questioned it myself whether or not I was supposed to. Glad I did."
