This is a nice recipe because it only takes one frying pan/pot. It’s one of those very basic meat and potatoes type of casseroles, done on the stovetop. I think it would be a good one to do while camping next summer, actually.
Thanks to my friend Glenda for sharing the recipe. 🙂 It’s from one of her Mennonite cookbooks. I’d give credit, but I don’t know the name of the cookbook. So thanks to the Mennonite lady who included it in the cookbook. 😉
1lb ground beef (I used cooked, diced chicken I had on hand)
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper (I used red since that’s all I had)
1 1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp butter
6 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheese
In frying pan, cook ground beef, onions, green peppers, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper; drain. Reduce heat to low, melt butter. Spread potatoes over melted butter and sprinkle with remaining salt. Top with beef mixture. Combine eggs and milk, pour over all. Cook covered, on medium heat, until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Top with cheese; cover and heat until cheese is melted. Cut in wedges or squares to serve.
We ate ours with ketchup on top. 🙂
