This is an inexpensive, easy to make meal that I came up with one night when I was in a hurry. It is very versatile and can be made to fit your family's taste. I like to brown the shredded hash browns first, but a friend of mine likes to put her's in right from the bag. This will satisfy the meat and potatoes lover in all of us.
- Fry shredded hash browns in skillet.
- While hash browns are frying, brown ground beef in a large, deep skillet or stock pot. As beef is browning, add diced onion. After beef is browned, drain (if needed) and sprinkle with beef bouillon. Add cream of mushroom soup and 1/4 can of milk. Stir until everything is well blended. Add green beans and let simmer until heated through.
- Add hash browns. If you like it to be a little thinner, add more milk. That's all there is too it.
- This dish is very versatile and can be changed to suit anyones taste. You could add/change any vegetables you like such as green peppers, corn, peas, etc., as well as experiment with different seasonings. You can even top off the dish with your favorite kind of shredded cheese and let it melt on top. I make this dish three or four times a month because it is so fast, easy and versatile.
