Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  2. Mix hash brown potatoes, vegetable oil, and black pepper in a bowl; press into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, garlic powder, and onion powder in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  4. Mix water and gravy mix into the cooked beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover skillet, and simmer until water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Fold in 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Spoon beef mixture onto the potato crust.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and bake until cheese is lightly browned, about 5 more minutes.

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.

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.

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 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.
