Hamburger Potato Casserole
Rating: Unrated
BeginnerCook's rating

This was a very simple recipe to follow, especially for a beginner like me. My boyfriend LOVED it. I took the advice from the previous reviews to add additional spices like garlic/onion powder, dried parsley, basil, and dried cilantro. Definitely cover it with tin foil, as it kept everything moist.

Chef John, this was a fantastic chicken dish. I served it with Brazilian rice and my boyfriend licked the plate clean! I followed your instructions to a "T" and the chicken (and GRAVY) came out perfect! Will DEFINITELY be saving this recipe!

I made this exactly as directed, except I only used half the salt (bf is on a restricted diet). The recipe is certainly time consuming (give yourself a least 2-3 hours), but it was very easy to make. I paired the meatballs with "Chef John's Tomato Sauce", and made a DELICIOUS meal for my other half. Another 5 star recipe from Chef John!!

This was a delicious sauce, with a bit of a subtle spicy flair (from the crushed red pepper). Definitely set aside some time to make this, as it is not quick, and you need to give the sauce about 2 hours to simmer. I paired the sauce with "Chef John's Italian Meatballs" and the bf loved it! Chef John has not disappointed yet!!

I only had green chard in the fridge, but it worked just as well...Had a great flavor, and so healthy! Will make this again as a healthy side dish.

An absolutely delicious side dish for any meal...definitely not for the faint though...you gotta like spicy! The batter that coats it gave a wonderful crispiness to the outside. I will definitely be making this again!

Yet again, another Chef John recipe that does NOT disappoint! The meat was falling off the bone it was so tender. This one was a keeper, as with ALL of Chef John's recipes!!!
