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).

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.


Its definitely a keeper in our book! I do agree with the above poster it may need just a little more salt, but I let my husband add his own. Thanks for reinventing a dish we eat often in the winter!


I made this vegetarian by using morningstar crumbles, and it was really yummy.


I loved this recipe! I actually put more salt in than directed (a couple teaspoons!), and it tastes soooo good! A great meal to re-heat too! I can't wait to eat it again.
