Reviews for Hamburger Casserole
"Try layering meat, 2 layers sliced potatoes, dry pkt of onion soup mix,Can creamed corn,can green beans then a lg can stewed tomatoes cook stove top in Dutch oven. Or you can bake it .1 hr 350"
"This was not very good at all. I even added carrots and minced garlic to it, but I can't imagine making this as written with only the beef and potatoes. It ended up just being a pile of bland ground beef, potatoes and carrots. Also, be sure that you keep the heat at medium as it says and check it every once in a while because mine burned on the bottom, and the heat was maybe at medium-high."
"I followed the recipe closely. Yep, it's bland. But it's a good stick-to-your-ribs type casserole and lends itself to variations. I appreciate the comments of other reviewers and will try some of their suggestions. Easy to make, stovetop cooking!"
"This seems very bland. I was given another version of this receipe. Put hamburger and onion in bottom of dutch oven . Add sliced potatoes and then 1 can of mushroom soup. Add veg you like peas, carrots,then creamed corn. top with can of tomato soup and bake at 350 a couple of hours until potatoes and meat is done."
"This is a very old recipe--I have version (no bullion or parsley) of it in a church ladies handwritten cookbook from about 1930. I add garlic, frozen corn and carrots to mine when I make it."
