"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." — M Craig

Wonderful! You can not leave out the cinnamon; it's the best part.
My husband came in and said "what is that incredible smell!?"
I didn't have tomato juice, used v8.
I didn't have mushrooms,left 'em out.
I didn't have swiss, used mozzerella.
They loved the cinnamon. Hubby and all three sons asked for thirds, but it was all gone. I'll double next time. Served it with brown rice, (sauce from Mansaka mixed well with the rice), and candied yams, and tea. Thanks!!! :o)
I am from Denmark and I love to cook. This is not a Danish recipe, not traditionally and not in modern new cooking. It may have been made by your grandmother, but you cannot call it Danish. Danish food does not use those ingredients.
Mansaka tribe is a sub-group of Mandaya and they are chiefly found in Compostela Valley, the southeastern area of Mindanao (south of Philippines). Perhaps you should call it a traditional recipe from the Philippines.
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 cooking it in a larger dish allows the potatos to crisp a bit but they were delicious this way to. The real key to this dish is the seasonings - it is a perfect blend :)
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 the sodium to approximately 800 mg (vs. the 1268 in original recipe) per serving. Went for the gusto with the all herbs called for. Skipped the mushrooms and the shortenning. I also used mozzarella rather than swiss, as it was on hand. I prepped the potatoes as stated and prepped sauce as indicated, too. Layered in crockpot on high 2 hours/low 2-3 more hours. Will make again with the 'srooms and swiss and I am sure it can only get better than it already is.
It doesn't matter to me where exactly the recipe came from, all that matters is that your grandmother made a wonderful dish! My family loved it! I also used fresh mushrooms because I had lots of them! And I used butter instead of shortening. Very tasty! Thank you for sharing this!
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 the recipe other than that.
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 something new!
