Make a version of this that my family calls 7 layer dinner , because it has 7 layers. Potato,carrots, onions, rice, tomato sauce,hamburger and then covered with another layer of tomato sauce. We like it , add spices as your family likes.

We had this delicious dish tonight. I halved it for the two of us and made a couple of changes per other reviewers. I used boxed scalloped potatoes and dry onion soup mix in place of the bouillon. Next time I will use fresh potatoes. I also added a can of peas, undrained. Delicious! Be sure to read all the reviews in case you wish to make any changes. Many of the reviewers mentioned that it was bland. Volunteer Field Editor

I haven't made this yet however I'm so pleased to find this recipe online! My family has made this meal for over 70 years (minus the worchestire sauce (spelling)) and we call it Hungarian Goulash! We layer just as you do but add a lot more onions. I have nevet been able to find anything close to ours. Now I have! Thank you...!!!

Hi! I make mine with beef, pickles, ketchup, and mustard because beef and potatoes are way too bland for me. That recipe has been passed down for years in my family and I really enjoy making it!

Thought I'd try this for my family. I made a few changes but basically kept it the same. Turned out absolutely awesome. Everyone liked it. **Note** I have 3 mentally handicapped adults and a picky husband that I cook for.

Just tried this hot out of the oven. Served with shredded cheddar on top. Delicious! Thanks. Followed other reviewers' suggestions. Will make this again for sure. Used 93% lean burger. Diced and fried the onion in 2 Tbs olive oil with 3 cloves diced garlic in 6-qt Dutch oven. After onion got soft, added burger, black pepper, plus 1 Tbs dried basil. Let meat brown then drained out the juice; in strainer lined wit paper towels. Cubed instead of sliced the potatoes. Added 2 sliced carrots, 3 stalks celery sliced, one red bell pepper diced, 8 oz sliced raw mushrooms. On top, I spread 10 oz of condensed cream of mushroom soup, then the diced tomatoes (drained). Pan was filled to the brim! Baked at 350F for 2 hours. Came out perfect.

My husbands family has been making this since I meet them over 30 years ago, just slight variations. no Parsley add garlic powder, no Beef Bouillon but add farm grown canned tomato's. Its always a hit.
