Corn, tomatoes, and potatoes and cheese make this ground beef casserole a whole meal.

If your ground beef is not extra lean you might want to brown it first. See the tips for instructions.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound extra-lean ground beef (90% or better)*
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups corn kernels or 1 can (15 ounces), drained
  • 16 ounces diced frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed, or about 3 to 4 cups mashed potato or cooked diced potato
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups shredded sharp or mild Cheddar cheese

How to Make It

1. Combine beef, onion, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine corn, potatoes, flour, melted butter, and chopped green bell pepper.

2. Pat the beef mixture into a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; top with the corn and potato mixture.

3. Bake uncovered at 375° for 45 minutes; sprinkle with the cheese and bake ground beef casserole 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until browned and potatoes are tender.

*If the ground beef is not extra lean, you might want to brown it first. Brown the beef with the onions win a large skillet over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain well and then mix it with the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, and salt. Proceed with the recipe.
