I have been searching for this recipe for years! My grandma made it for me when I was a child. It is a mild tasting casserole that is perfect for kids who dicriminating palates nix all veggies except corn! I added a tsp. of worshshires(sp?) sauce & the cheese on top is really not needed. Thank you for providing a childhood favorite that my family loved as well!

I've been making my own version of this for years. Thought I would mix it up and try this one. This was not a hit in my house and I will not make it again.

My husband and I really enjoyed this easy weeknight meal. A quick throw-together kind of hamburger helperish skillet meal, it was very hearty. I saw others' comments about the recipe being bland, and I think that is because the recipe is very light on the spices. A "pinch" is not nearly enough of any of the spices. I used a generous 1/2 tsp each of the onion powder, garlic powder and salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. I also used more evaporated milk than the recpie called for because it was really, really thick. With extra milk, the consistency was great. We loved it and I will definitely make this again for a super-quick and easy weeknight meal.

Oh, so good! Was a big hit in my house but we LOVE cream cheese! My four year old to me I was the "purdiest good cook ever" she ate two bowls of this! Then my 18 mo old had two of her own bowls without the ground beef, she seemed to enjoy it very much.

good, quick, easy and I had everything on hand to make it. I enjoyed the mild creamy taste and the pinch of sweetness added with the corn.

This was great, but sat really heavy so I had a lot of leftovers. The ingredients really added up to a good ole comfort food dish, even if it was pretty dense. I like that when it's this tasty. I live alone but failed to cut this recipe so by day 5 of eating this for dinner it seemed a lot less satisfying than when I first made it.

This is an old family recipe. I omit the mozzarella, use cream of chicken soup & I use a pkt of brown gravy mix instead of the spices. I do bake it all in the oven instead of on the's better that way, I think. Not very healthy but it's great for when you are going for comfort food. My grandkids loved this as much as my children used to! I served it w/ a salad & Golden Sweet Cornbread (from this site).

Delish! I didn't have any cream cheese, and after reading reviews wouldn't have used it anyway. I used sour cream instead, which gave the sauce FLAVOR and tang! I loved it. The kids and hubby all loved it as well. I will be making this one again- SOON!
