Harvest Hamburger Casserole

During harvesttime, I take this dish out to the field for my family's lunch. It sure makes things easy when you have your meat and vegetables all in one dish. And, as many times as I've carried a full casserole out to the field, I have never brought anything back to the house but the empty dish.

    Since it's just the two of us, I made 1/2 the recipe. We don't like tomatoes so I used tomato sauce, garden sweet potatoes, and yellow pepper that I had on hand. This would be good with bread. HD said it was interesting because it contained everything - he loves lima beans.

    This recipe is really good. I didn't use Lima beans and diced the potatoes instead of slicing them. I will definitely be making this again soon.

    my whole family loves this recipe. a few dislike the lima beans so sometimes i leave them out. this makes a nice size casserole and with only 3 in the house there are still no leftovers. the flavors work great together and apart from the long cook time, it comes together quite easy. i have shared this with my mother and she didn't have any leftovers either. definitely one to pass down to future generations. thanks for this amazing recipe :)

    This is one of those recipes that our family ate but didn't care that much for. It just wasn't that great. It seemed to be lacking in taste.
