On your mark, get set, GO!
It is school time Ladies and Gentleman and I am hitting the ground running. I am trying new recipes to add to our rotation of easy recipes. This Crock Pot 4 Layer Hamburger Potato Casserole will be perfect for after school days and cold winter nights.
This is a big year for me, as for the first time in 16 years all of our children will be in school. Our 1st grader is entering the school system and I am without a grocery shopping partner.
I need crock pot meals to feed my family. Easy quick meals that compliment my freezer meal prep is even better. If I have hamburger already cooked in the freezer, all I need to do is chop the vegetables and I am good to go.
- Cooked Hamburger
- Tomato Juice
This crock pot recipe is so easy; it takes such little time to prep. Simply chop the vegetables and cook the hamburger.
Layer the meat and vegetables in the crock pot.
Then add tomato juice and cook on high for 5 hours or low for 8.
:: You don't need to stir the casserole while cooking, but if you can, go for it. Just to promote even cooking. I would two or three times. Again, not necessary, just helpful.
:: You can add any vegetables you like, just as green beans or lima beans. We prefer less veggies than more (well, the kids do) so we went the kid favorites like corn and carrots.
:: You can use V-8 juice if desired in place of the tomato juice.
:: To store the casserole leftovers, put in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Picture shows corn but i did not see corn in the recipe?
Whoops! Just a mistake on my part. Thanks for letting me know! I will fix the recipe. :-)
Can you suggest a substitute for the quart of tomato juice. We're a bit sensitive to the acid levels.
Well, maybe substitute beef broth in place of the tomato juice. Or half water/half beef broth. It would be more stew like, but I think it would be delicious.
