Beef, Broccoli & Potato Casserole

"A friend shared this with me. I don't like broccoli and she was trying to get me to try it. It took one bite and I was hooked! It is so yummy and easy to make. I usually make ahead and freeze or store in fridge for a day. Add at least 10 more minutes bake time if you do this."

    I used broccoli cheddar soup instead of cream of celery and frozen hash browns. The casserole seemed to be just a bit bland to me, but since DH liked it, it gets five stars as he usually hates broccoli. Thank you Ranelle.

    This was a very hearty yummy dish. For the crust I used left over baked potatoes that I sliced thinly. I love the combination of the crunchy potatoe crust and cheesey creamy filling. I'm always looking for ways to use leftovers and this has become a favorite. Thanks for posting.

    This is wonderful!!!! I used Ore Ida Cottage Fries for the shell and even created a top with them, and then layered the cheese and onion over my top crust. Very easy and quick to make. Good flavor. Sure to please adults and kids alike.

    Very Good, Ranelle. Couldn't find frozen potato slices when I wanted to fix this so just used hash browns as a bottom layer. Seemed to work out quite well.
