"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!"

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.
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!
Dead simple and tasty. Good comfort food. Reminds me quite a bit of Shepherd's Pie, but upside down and without the veg.
Love it! My kids enjoy it as is, I like to put it in a tortilla with a little sour cream, delicious!
very easy to make like everyone else says. I swapped out the gravy with cream of mushroom and it worked great. I would also recommend that the hash browns get cooked a little beforehand. They don't have to be completely done, but mine were a little on the raw side.
next time, We'll probably add some eggs on top for a souffle type dish.
I'm not sure why this received 4 stars. This was very bland even after I added more black pepper and added salt. My husband only ate it after drenching it with A1 steaksauce and ketchup. I also added seasoning salt after it was cooked and that help start giving it flavor. It was too dry and seemed to be missing a creamy component like a cream of mushroom soup. I would not make this again unless I totally change the recipe. Oh and by the way I DID take the advice of others and cook for 30 minutes rather than 15 because the potatoes would not be cooked enough. Overall not a good recipe.
