I grew up on this 1. We always put chopped green peppers in ours as well. Gives it a much better flavor. So easy, fast and cheep meal.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 28, 2012

made this and was extremely blah, so I tweaked it a little. I added some worcerterershire sauce,egg, garlic powder,chopped red and green peppers, and some Japanese panko crumbs to the hamburger mix and then layered it like someone suggested. I put the carrots on the bottom then the potatoes, onions and then the hamburg patty. cooked it for the time stated and got some flavor. Still not excellen, but a good small dinner. Will make again, just not too soon.

My family loves this, especially my dad who is a big meat-and-potatoes guy. We like to serve corn with it, it adds a little sweetness.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2011

I always put my potatoes and carrots on the bottom...then the onions, (green pepper is also good to add here) a little minced garlic, and then the hamburger on top. Of course you can season this with salt and pepper. This way the juices flow down through the veggies and flavor them. Yummy EVERY time!
