Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1 3/4 C. (about 8 oz.) frozen hash brown potatoes, partially thawed
1/4 C. finely chopped green pepper
3/4 C. shredded Cheddar cheese (about 3 oz.)
1 envelope Lipton Onion-Mushroom Recipe Soup Mix
1/2 C. water
1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 C. fresh breadcrumbs
1 egg
1/4 C. ketchup
Onion-Mushroom Cheese Gravy:
1 envelope Lipton Onion-Mushroom Soup Mix
2 Tbsp all purpose flour
1 3/4 C water
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350¦. In medium skillet, heat oil and cook potatoes and green peppers covered 7 minutes. Cool slightly; stir in cheese. In medium bowl, combine onion-mushroom recipe soup mix with water; add remaining ingredients, mixing thoroughly. In shallow baking pan, shape 1/3 beef mixture into rectangle (about 8' x 4'); top with potato mixture. Cover with remaining beef mixture, shaping into loaf and sealing edges tightly; bake 1 hour or until done. Serve, if desired, with Onion-Mushroom Cheese Gravy.

For the gravy: In medium saucepan, combine Lipton Onion-Mushroom Recipe Soup Mix with all-purpose flour. Stir in water; blend until smooth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and stir in shredded Cheddar cheese. Simmer, stirring frequently, until gravy thickens, about 5 minutes. Makes about 2 C. gravy.
