This He-Man Meat and Potato Casserole is a recipe our family used to keep our friends, cousins and us fired up for sports and well fed. We named it after our first son’s favorite childhood hero to entice him to try it initially. It worked and became a favorite.
Whether it was baseball, volleyball, building snowmen or swimming, we found this to be enjoyed by children and adults.
Preparation is about 20 mins and it cooks about an hour. This recipe yields 6 servings.
