Some folks might call this recipe a form of Swedish potato sausage. I call it getting my meat and potatoes in one dish—deliciously!—Mary Arnold, Long Prairie, Minnesota


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cups grated peeled potatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Hamburger buns, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine beef, potatoes, onion, salt and pepper; mix well. Shape into six to eight patties.
