"This is a traditional Danish casserole taught to me by my grandmother. The combination of meat, vegetables and spices makes it very tasty, and it is also easy to prepare."

  1. Melt the shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef, and cook, stirring to crumble, until evenly browned. Mix in the onion and garlic; cook until tender. Drain excess grease, and sprinkle in the flour, salt, pepper, sugar, basil, cinnamon and oregano. Stir in the mushrooms and tomato sauce, and simmer for 15 minutes over low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl or dish, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until about halfway done.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish, or shallow casserole dish of similar size, layer half of the potatoes. Spread half of the meat sauce over them, then sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat the layers ending with cheese on top.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until potatoes are tender and cheese is browned.

This dish is really different from the normal hamburger casserole. The cinnamon gives it this wonderful aroma, and it tastes very nice. I will definately make this again.

This was hit all around :) I would drop out the shortening next time. You do not have to have tomoato sauce - I just used diced tomatos. I lso cooked it in a smaller deeper dish. I am sure cook...

I really like this recipe and yes, I tried it in the crockpot today. I substituted 6 oz. tomato paste and 2 cups water for the tomato sauce. Used a lower sodium, but a real salt which reduced th...

Easy to make, and a nice change from "canned soup and ground beef" casseroles. The whole family loved it! I used fresh mushrooms because I had a bunch that needed to be used, but didn't change t...

I baked this for 30 min. at 350 and it was perfect. Unusual casserole, the cinnimon gives it a different flavor. My family really liked it and it will be great for easy winter food. Thanks for s...

This is a GREAT recipe, I made it over last weekend and I would have to say that the leftovers were even better! My wife liked it even more than I did. We will definately make this one often. JJ
