This easy, tasty recipe is a winner! I have been making it since it appeared in “Taste of Home” magazine. When my two children lived at home, they always gobbled up this dish. My Husband has always looked forward to eating this casserole. For, at least, 18-20 years, this is the best!

An easy, simple, tasty casserole! I microwaved the mixed veggies before adding them to the mixture, though - was concerned that they wouldn't cook thoroughly otherwise. Also baked a bit longer.

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.
