I made this last night for dinner. It was easy and delicious, Thanks for a wonderful casserole. My kids liked it too which is an added bonus. The only thing I would change the next time would be to add a little more ketchup.

We found this casserole to be okay. The recipe did not specify which kind of frozen hash browns to use -- shredded or cubed. Well, I bought cubed and I think the recipe must call for shredded. They added a strange texture to the pie. I am not sure how to describe it. It was like a normal cheeseburger pie, then there were these mushy chunks of potato that didn't quite fit. Also, it was a bit bland for our tastes. I will probably retry this using shredded hash browns and spicing up the meat a bit.
