This was very tasty. After looking at the other reviews I made some adjustments though...I diced up some onion and cooked it with the meat, which I seasoned with garlic salt, steak seasoning, pepper and paprika. I let my son choose between green beans and peas and he choose peas (the kids love corn so I didn't even need to ask on that one). I didn't have hash brown patties so I finished off the bag of frozen hash brown 'chunks' I had and then chopped up some frozen french fries. As I stirred it all up it seemed dry so I added a can of beef broth and let it simmer together for a few minutes. Just before serving I added about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Turned out pretty darned tasty and my husband can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!


I added a can of zesty diced tomatoes with green chilis undrained. Instead of hashbrowns I chopped up potatoes and fried them with some oil in a skillet and then added them to the mix. I also browned the meat with 2 cloves of fresh garlic. Yummy!!


Quick & Easy is right! My family loved it, the whole batch went! I did add some onion powder to the hamburger as it was browing, gave it a little more flavor, it think. Next time I might add some shedded cheese on top. My youngest ate her's with ketchup & asked for seconds. Thank you Bill! This is a keeper!
