I love dishes that combine and make it easy to have  complete supper like this one. All you have to do is add a simple veggie and you’ll have a nice meal. For all you that a busy bringing meals to the field while harvest is in full swing this would be a perfect meal for the field. It transports nicely and it’s in one dish. Gotta love that right?

This would also make a great dish to bring to a potluck or a friend that had a baby or is sick.

The hubby definetely liked this dish and kept going back for more so if you have a hungry man or a few around they will devour this in no time flat!

    Hi Julie, Just saw the recipe for this Meatball Hash Brown Bake and it looks delicious. But I do have a question. I was wandering if you could use the frozen meatballs (thawed) in this? I was just wandering for like really busy and hectic day’s. Thanks so much

    • Julie Evink

      Yes the frozen meatballs (thawed) will work just fine. In fact I do it all the time when I’m in a hurry 🙂

  • Nathan

    I just found this recipe today, it looks delicious. I’ve seen you used frozen meatballs a few times. I was wondering if that would change the cooking time also?

    • Julie Evink

      I usually defrost them and cook them the same length of time.
