I hate it when people completely change up a recipe and then rate it on their changes instead of the original recipe, but that's exactly what I'm going to do today. And this just goes to show you how versatile and forgiving this recipe concept is. I had ground sweet Italian sausage, peas, corn, turkey gravy and 1/3 of a bag of frozen hashbrowns that I needed to use up.
I cooked the sausage, added the peas and corn, added the turkey gravy and kicked up the flavor with beef bouillon granules, brought this to a simmer, then poured it into a 9x9 casserole.
I thawed and drained the frozen hashbrowns, added a handful of parmesan cheese to them, mixed it up with about 2 or 3 tablespoons of melted butter until they had the consistency of lumpy mashed potatoes.
I then dropped spoonfuls of the hashbrown mixture onto the meat and gravy mixture carefully spreading the potato topping with the back of a spoon until it covered the meat mixture.
I popped this in a 350 oven until the topping was evenly golden brown and crispy.
This was a decent, quick, comfort food meal that pleased the family and pleased me in it's simplicity.
You could easily swap the sausage for beef, chicken or turkey, use the appropriate gravy for the meat and whatever veggies you have on hand that need to be utilized.
I'll be reaching for this recipe again when I have leftovers that need to be used up.
