Broccoli, Beef & Potato Hotdish

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (292 votes)

This easy casserole, full of ground beef, roasted broccoli and topped with hash browns, was inspired by the classic Minnesota Tater Tot hotdish. Roasting the broccoli before adding it to the casserole gives the whole dish a much more complex and exciting flavor, but it’s by no means necessary. If you want to keep it simple, skip roasting the broccoli (Step 2) and use 6 cups frozen broccoli, thawed, in its place (omit 1 tablespoon oil, as well).

Made some minor changes, and really enjoyed the dish overall.

Changes:
Used ground turkey instead of beef
Added 3 chopped cloves of garlic to turkey/onion mix
Made sure to add S/P and a dash of garlic powder for each major component
Added a 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard and a healthy shake of cayenne into the cheese sauce

I LOVED this recipe!! I decided to try making all of the recipes in the hotdish feature, and so far I have made four of them. This was hands down everybody's favorite so far! Totally delicious.

Whole family ate it, - picky 9 year old included. Great flavors, hearty, and a great do-ahead recipe. I did a few shortcuts like other reviewers - frozen, steamed brocolli, Alexia potatoes, and those shortcuts made it take less time than it looks from the recipe - but otherwise did recipe as written and will make a double batch next time since our family of 4 ate half the batch at dinner and packed most of the rest of it for lunch for tomorrow.

I made a double batch because I had lots of beef and broccoli.

I made a made a white sauce with butter and flower and thickened with a little cornstarch in the end. I think this may have added what was missing for some of the other posters. I only used 4 cups of milk for my two casseroles (half of what the recipe calls for).

I did not use cooking spray on the top and it turned out great!

As for seasoning, I added a little s&p to the broccoli, the beef and the sauce.

I loved this!! I had cooked my ground beef the night before, did not have onion to put with it but heated the ground beef up last night with a small amount of chopped onion. Yummy! the ground beef I got is from our farmer's market and is all grass fed beef. SOOOO good and lean! It is just my husband and myself but we both loved it and have some for lunch today and still a lot leftover! My mom was "Queen of Casseroles" and I think I am taking over her role... next time though I will get the Alexia hash browns. I used the Ore Ida refrigerated hashbrowns, and they browned up very nicely.
