This was soooo good! I had a hungry bunch of college students at a brunch and along with other items, this was a BIG hit. I tripled the recipe and cooked in a 9x13 inch pan. I sliced and carmelized the onions first, and added garlic powder to the meat. Everything else was as you wrote...and you wrote a good one! This is going into my "Make Again Cookbook"!
We loved this so much! I used shredded hash browns and used ham in place of the ground beef and added mushrooms too. We will most definitely be using this recipe over and over again.
