Cheeseburger Bake

Serves 8


12 oz lean ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 1/2 cups hash brown potatoes, frozen, thawed
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
3 slices American cheese, cut into strips, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with vegetable cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add beef. Cook, stirring, until browned, about 10 minutes. Place beef on a paper towel-lined plate and drain. Wipe out skillet.
  3. Spray skillet with more cooking spray. Add garlic, bell pepper, onion, and potatoes. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in beef, tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, and basil.
  4. Spoon half of beef mixture into a large baking dish. Top with cheese strips. Spoon remaining beef mixture on top. Cover dish with foil. Bake until heated through, about 25 minutes.
  5. To prepare topping, using a 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut cheese into shapes. Place over beef mixture for the last 5 minutes of baking. Serve immediately.
