Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 15-ounce can cream-style corn
  • 1 15-ounce can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 10.5-ounce can cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash Table Blend
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 11/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 30-ounce package frozen hashbrowns

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13in pan and set aside.
  • Use a food processor to process the whole kernel corn to 4mm or less pieces.
  • Use the same processor or a blender to puree the cream-style corn, add to the bowl with minced corn.
  • Combine cream of chicken soup to the corn mixture.
  • Heat a saute pan or high-sided skillet over medium high.
  • Add the ground beef and fry until cooked through. While cooking, break the beef into smaller pieces. Unlike traditional browning, stir frequently to avoid developing a hard “crust” on the beef.
  • Remove beef from pan and pulse in food processor until pieces are 4mm or less. Return to pan.
  • Heat on low and add cream of chicken soup and corn mixture to beef.
  • Stir together and season with Mrs. Dash, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and salt to taste.
  • Pulse frozen hashbrowns in food processor until pieces are 4mm or less.
  • Spread a layer of pulsed hashbrowns in the 9x13 and top with beef mixture. Add another layer of hashbrowns and beef and top with remaining hashbrowns.
  • Cover 9x13 with tin foil. Bake for 60 mins or until bubbling.
