Broccoli, Beef & Potato Hotdish

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (331 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).

I didn't love this recipe, I want to so badly but it was just missing something I can't quite put my finger on. It does definitely require more salt than the recipe calls for as above posters have noted.

Hrm, I just don't love it. I wanted to though, but like other posters said it definitely needs more salt. It was just missing something for me, I can't quite put my finger on it though.

I made this dish as is and it was wonderful. Roasting the broccoli adds a lot of flavor. It's a keeper!

This dish was amazing. It's going to be my new go-to comfort food. I agree with the other reviewer about Alexia hashbrowns, I used them and they were flavorful and perfect, they seemed to me fresher than other brands. I also suggest going with the roasted broccoli as opposed to the frozen as it added so much flavor. My husband and I also discovered that a spot of Tobasco sauce really enhances all the flavors. Sooo good.

My family loves this dish and have served it twice. I added garlic salt and omitted salt - yummy. I also use bison meat, which has less fat. Alexia organic frozen hashbrowns are a great shortcut.
