Six Layer Dinner

IMG_2145Here’s something that’s easy, inexpensive, and you can throw it together and go off and do other things while it’s cooking. It’s one of those “comfort food” type of meals. As an added bonus, it reheats well and you can also add some beef broth to it for a delicious soup.

IMG_2134You will need potatoes, carrots, onion, hamburger, canned corn, carrots, canned tomatoes and salt and pepper (to taste).

Scrub and remove any “undesirable” spots from your potatoes and carrots (I leave the skin on for added fiber and nutrition, but you can remove it if you would like). Slice them fairly thinly, either by hand or in a food processor. The food processor makes a quick job of it and I like the convenience, but it is one more appliance to store somewhere. Using a greased 10 x 14″ glass baking dish, layer the potatoes on the bottom. Salt and pepper them. Add chopped onion followed by 2 cans of corn which has been drained. Next comes the hamburger. I like to put it on in a thin layer. Salt and pepper the meat. Layer the carrots on top of the hamburger and once again, salt and pepper. Lastly, added the canned tomatoes, juice and all. Cover with foil and bake at 350° until done. This will take about 1-1.5 hours depending on the amount of potatoes and size of baking dish you used.

This recipe reheats very well. Also, you can chop leftovers (use a potato masher to make it easy) and add beef broth to it for a nice vegetable soup. Either way is good. Enjoy!
