I decided I wanted to try a different hot dish tonight, so found this recipe and luckily I had all the ingredients for it for supper. I only made half the recipe, which was easy to do, because it's just Dave and I tonight. The full recipe would definitely feed a family of 5 or 6. I think it is super tasty and was easy to make . Would definitely make it again when the kids and mini kids come over to eat, or take to someone who isn't feeling well enough to cook etc for their family. It has everything in it for a complete meal in a dish. I am just serving it with my bread and butter pickles. A salad would be great with it too.
Here is the recipe:
Hamburger, Broccoli, Hash Brown Hotdish:
(full sized version)
1 (32 oz.) bag frozen hash brown potatoes
2 lbs hamburger, browned with a small chopped onion (and seasoned with salt and pepper)
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped broccoli
1 can French fried onions
2 cans cream of celery soup
2/3 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese-or 1 cup cheddar and 1 cup pepper jack if you like the extra kick)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper
Place potatoes in the bottom and up the sides of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Place browned (salt and peppered) meat and onion, broccoli and 1/2 can of the French fried onions in the potato shell.
Combine the soup, milk, 1 cup cheese and spices. Pour over the burger mixture and bake, covered, at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Top with the remaining cheese and rest of French fried onions and bake, uncovered, 2-3 more minutes (it took longer for mine to completely melt and brown a little)..DONE.
