This is a great jumping off point recipe for me! I used frozen hash browns to help speed things along, mixed in salt and dried onion. Then I poured the sauce over the potatoes, then the hamburger/onion mixture, and then a bag of green beans on top- it looks so scrumptious! I'm going to top it with cheese at the end and let it melt over the green beans. I can tell it's going to be a killer casserole.
I loved it!!!! I used red potatoes, I seasoned the hamburger with season all, and I added season salt and shredded cheese the last 5 minutes of baking.
gosh this was delicious, really the only change I made was I used Italian sausage meat in place of ground beef and used red potatoes as that is all I had, I used whole milk and sauteed a small onion, fresh garlic and red chili flakes in the butter before adding in the other ingredients, this is a keeper, thanks for sharing pattikay!...Kitten:)
This dish has been an absolute favorite of our family for years. My suggestion to add more taste and texture is: top with toasted Panko Breadcrumbs after Casserole is done.
This looks like something my grandmother would've made-cheesy, comforting & made from scratch! It's not something I could make during the week but this will be in the menu for next Saturday!! Can't wait!!
Great dish. Nice change from pasta and rice casseroles. I mixed the cheese and hamburger so layers were potatoes cheese/meat, potatoes cheese/meat. Topped with cheese the last few minutes of cooking. Will definitely make again. Probably add veggies next time.
I made this yesterday. I did add some spices to the meat otherwise I think it would have been too bland and it still needed more. However, it was delicious. I'm giving it a 5 because it's wonderful comfort food. I will experiment with different spice sets though because it needs something to give it more flavor. However, I would eat it as written too. My picky grown daughter had seconds, something she never does. Hubby said it was ok. He said growing up he had to eat too many Hamburger Helper meals and that's probably why. There is no comparison to Hamburger Helper and this meal because this meal actually has flavor and doesn't have a process taste that the boxed meals do. I will definitely be making this again! My other daughter really liked it too! Thank you
I made this yesterday and it was delicious. I only altered it to add some ketchup to the meat after it cooked, added bacon and a can of drained diced tomatoes prior to final layer of potatoes and then the last 10 minutes I topped it with French's crunchy cheese onions. The dish really tasted like a bacon cheese burger.
So good! The only change I made was to add a dash of dried oregano to the hamburger. Loved the cheese sauce. Next time, will try to add some frozen veggies as other reviewers suggested.
Pretty good. I added some frozen vegetables. Also used Velveeta cheese as I didn't have any cheddar. I think it would have been better, had more flavor with the cheddar.
