Broccoli,Beef and Potato casserole

You can never go wrong with broccoli, ground beef or potatoes.  Putting all three together makes an amazing combination.  There are a lot of recipes out there, but they tend to be pretty bad for you.  I found a variation of one on pinterest and tried it and it was really good.  My friend so it reminded her of shepards pie but the potatoes were crispier!

Ingredients
  • One and a half pounds of ground beef
  • 6 cups of broccoli (I used a bag of frozen broccoli florets)
  • 4 cups of non fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 large onion ( I used a bag of frozen chopped onions)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder 
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons salt 
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups frozen shredded hashbrowns
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Paprika
  •  
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Brown ground beef and onions.  Add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and salt,set aside.

  1. Whisk cornstarch and milk in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and continue to whisk until thick.  Remove from heat and stir in cheddar.  Continue to stir until all of the cheese is melted.

  1. Combine potatoes, egg, pepper and salt. 

  1. Spread the beef mixture on the bottom of a casserole dish.  Top the beef mixture with broccoli.  Top the broccoli with your cheese mixture.  Add the potato mixture to the top and spray with cooking oil.
  2. Place in the oven and cook for about 40 minutes or until the mixture is bubbly.
  3. Remove from oven and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
