Our three young children keep me very busy. So I need dishes that are quick to cook and, most importantly, that the kids will eagerly eat. This recipe meets those criteria.—Lois Oligmueller, West Point, Nebraska

  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 can (2.8 ounces) french-fried onions, divided


  1. In a bowl, combine hash browns, oil and pepper. Press onto the bottom and 1 in up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in gravy mix and water. Add vegetables and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese and half of the onions. Spoon into the potato shell. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and onions. Bake 5 minutes longer. Yield: 4-6 servings.
When making Hamburger Hash Browns, you can use 1 cup of prepared gravy (homemade or purchased) instead of the gravy mix and 1 cup water.

"It was easy to make and great for little ones, but adults thought it needed more flavor. I'd doctor it upnext time!"
