This was very bland the first time I reviewed it, even for my simple palate. I've tweaked the recipe, now giving it 4 stars. First, I used pre-cooked hash brown patties which eliminates the flavorless results when baking raw hash browns. No oil, & I added 1.5 oz. of real bacon bits to the ground beef mixture. I also crumbled the hash browns & microwaved them in a bowl. Doing that helped bring it to temp without overcooking the hamburger & gravy. I added a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce & a tablespoon of minced onions (no onion powder) to the hamburger after it was done. I only had a 2 cup dry brown gravy packet, so I poked a few holes in the hash browns & added 1/4 cup or so to use some of the extra. Much more flavorful!
