My mom used to make this for us when we were little and I love to make this for myself now that I'm older.
- Preheat oven to 400-F degrees.
- Brown the ground beef and onion and then drain off excess fat.
- Stir in the ketchup, salt, pepper, and hash brown potatoes.
- Place in a greased 10-inch pie plate and top with the american cheese.
- In a medium bowl, mix the remaining ingredients.
- (It will look lumpy.) Pour over the ground beef and cheese.
- Bake for about 30 minutes or until set.
- Let it stand about 5 minutes before slicing.
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.
