"With my in-home day care, I am always looking for some good home-cooked meals to feed the kids. This was a hit and the kids wanted me to make it again the next day!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
ground black pepper
1 (.75 ounce) packet
dry brown gravy mix
shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
Quick meal to throw together. I would add a little extra pepper to the hash browns. I thought the hash browns still tasted uncooked but hubby had seconds. I will do this again adding extra cooking time or maybe cooking the hash brown layer a bit first before topping with the ground beef mixture.
This was ok, but something was missing, even to my juvenile palate. The only change I made was to add a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. If I make it again I may make it more like a shepherd's pie: more gravy, add vegetables; perhaps in a larger pan.
I decided to make this because i was running out of things in the fridge... It came out AMAZING... but i winged it and substituted some things... WHAT I DID: COOKED @ 375 instead of 350 (based off of previous comments) and placed oiled/seasoned hash browns in oven after it was preheated and cooked them ALONE while i cooked the beef and did all the other steps... (about 20-25 mins, depending on how fast you work). While cooking beef i substituted onion powder for actual onions, cut into TINY little pieces (yellow onion) and also added salt and a tad bit of WORCHESTIRE sauce... I also substituted the gravy mix with ACTUAL gravy, because i didnt have the dry stuff.. so just used some beef broth (1 cup), flour, WORCHESTIRE (just a tad, like 1-2 tsp) and butter was my mixture i poured into beef after draining. after that just made it as usual, except I also put a couple tidbits of butter on top of mixture to melt into it and i cooked 20 MINUTES @ 375 then another 5 mins to melt remaining cheese... MMMMMM DELICIOUSSS... MAKE IT YOUR OWN :)
This is really easy to make and tasty. I did not have any gravy mix so used beef bouillon powder and flour to make the gravy. Could add veggies or more spices to change it up a bit.
This was a big hit at a church luncheon, but I had to time the dish so that it was piping hot when I left for church. However, when the timer went off after 15 minutes, the hash browns on the bottom were barely even warm. I jacked the oven up to 375 on preheat and baked it for an additional 10 minutes. I will adjust the oven time to 25-30 minutes when I make it again--and again! When asked for the recipe at the luncheon, I replied that it would appear in our upcoming church cookbook--so they would have to buy a copy!
Everyone but one of my children loved this. I felt it was a little bland, will deffinately spice it up next time. And cook the potatoes a bit before adding everything else to it. They did not seem quite done to me. Over all a good recipe.
Love it! My kids enjoy it as is, I like to put it in a tortilla with a little sour cream, delicious!
Dead simple and tasty. Good comfort food. Reminds me quite a bit of Shepherd's Pie, but upside down and without the veg.
