Recipe by PanNan
READY IN: 30mins




  • Move oven rack to the upper-middle position and heat the broiler.
  • Place the frozen hash browns in a large microwavable bowl and separate the shreds. (I pound them lightly with the back of a wooden spoon and they fall apart.) Toss them with 2 tbsp of the melted butter, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Microwave the potatoes, covered, until tender - 7 - 10 minutes on high.
  • Cook ground meat and onion in a large oven safe skillet until it is cooked, about 5 minutes. Drain fat off.
  • Stir thyme and flour into beef/onion mixture and cook about 1 minute. Add broth and Worcestershire sauce and cook about 6 - 8 minutes until thickened.
  • Add peas and carrots to beef mixture and simmer until heated, about a minute, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Scatter the cooked hash browns over the top of the beef mixture and brush with the rest of the butter.
  • Place the skillet unter the broiler and broil 3 - 5 minutes or until the potatoes have golden brown tips.
  • Remove from oven and serve.
