Another day in the Pantry Challenge. Friday night at work we ordered out dinner as I had a PT appointment before work so sleep was more important than cooking. When we got home in the morning, I went down to the freezer and randomly picked something out of the bin and got a pound of hamburger. I saw a bag of hash browns so I grabbed those also. Put the ground beef in the fridge to thaw and went to bed.
When I woke up I realized I had to do something with these items so I looked in the canned food pantry and grabbed some creamed corn and a can of cream of celery soup. I browned the ground beef and seasoned it with some onion and garlic powder and a little pepper. I stirred in the soup, the creamed corn, half a can of water and half the bag of potatoes and warmed it through. Into an 8x8 baking dish, sprinkled it with some fresh grated cheese and popped it into a 350 degree F. oven for about 30 minutes.
It is hard to get a good photo of a hotdish. This is as good as I got. It tasted a lot like Tater Tot hotdish. We took half for dinner at work and gobbled it right up and Dude took the rest last night when he worked OT. The Tupperware came home empty. I think I would stir the cheese into the creamy mixture and then bake it for 15 minutes and then sprinkle with a little more cheese. The cheesier the better!
I will definitely make this again. Oh, and sticks and stones was for potatoes (sticks) and ground beef (stones). Sorry, it popped into my mind and I ran with it!
