  • 1 lb lean ground beef , raw
  • 7 cups frozen hash brown potatoes , I use Ore Ida
  • 1 1/2 cups corn , fresh, or canned
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2-3 tsp Season Salt
  • Kosher Salt & Pepper , to taste
  • Cooking Spray


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat brown the ground beef. Generously season the beef with salt and pepper before the meat is cooked. When cooked thoroughly remove from heat and set aside in a separate dish. In the same large skillet, add vegetable oil and hash brown potatoes. (I also spray a bit of cooking spray on top of the potatoes) Cook on medium high-heat until the potatoes are lightly crispy and cooked through- about 10 minutes. Sprinkle season salt and pepper onto the potatoes and add corn. Cook for a couple minutes until corn is warm. Add ground beef back into skillet and mix thoroughly. Salt & Pepper to taste. Top with some cheddar, if you want!, and serve warm. Enjoy!
