Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.


6 servings

My children enjoy topping these with ketchup—they say it's like having hamburgers and fries without the buns!—Wanda Kaney, Williston, South Carolina


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen shoestring potatoes
  • Ketchup, optional


  1. Combine first eight ingredients in a large bowl; mix well. Set aside. Place half of the potatoes in the bottom of a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Spread meat mixture evenly over potatoes. Firmly pat the remaining potatoes on top. Bake, uncovered, at 400 ° for 30 minutes or until the meat is cooked and the potatoes are lightly browned. Cut into squares. Serve with ketchup if desired.
