Here is another dish we enjoy that is down-home good and super easy-peasy!
Take 5-8 potatoes (this is for a 13x19 pan so adjust for your family, the size of your potatoes, and pan size) and clean 'em good and peel and slice, or just slice, into a greased 13x9 baking pan. Now, this doesn't have to be perfect layers, just toss them into the dish-the more uneven, the better they are gonna taste and bake!
Slice one large onion and separate into rings and lay on top of potato slices. (You can also cut the potatoes up and the onion up and mix together and place in pan, too, but we are talking super quick, maybe 8 minutes prep total if done the easiest way, people!)
Take a handful of brown sugar and sprinkle over the potatoes and onions.
In a bowl, mix a pound or so of ground beef with the following:
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup cracker crumbs (any kind)
3/4 cup milk
I usually mix the above stuff together first and then mix the beef into it like you would meatloaf. Then put this beef mixture on top of potato/onion layer. You can either leave it crumbled on top or flatten it-it doesn't matter! Put into a 350 degree oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours! To test if it's done or not, stick a fork into it. You will be able to tell if the potatoes are done or not. Super easy and tasty!
I have seen many recipes like this using cream of something-or-other soups, cheese, etc., but this one is just as good, if not better, AND even cheaper!
Sometimes we have applesauce and buttered bread with this. Hope you enjoy!
