Only the leftovers were freeze dried, guessing 1 medium tray*


  1. Soak the Hash browns in warm water… the extra water will be discarded (Won’t soak up extra water)
  2. Soak Hamburger in Warm Water… the extra water will be discarded (Won’t soak up extra water)
  3. Add 2 C of Water to a Pot on the stove.. Add 4 Tbsp of Brown Gravy Mix, and 2 Tbsp of Onion soup mix.. Whisk together and cook until it is thickened and bubbly.
  4. Cook biscuits as you put the rest of this together (If you are eating fresh, omit for freeze drying)
  5. Drain excess water from beef and hash browns
  6. In a 9x9 pan put your hamburger, mixed veggies, gravy, and stir, then put the hashbrowns on top
  7. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes
  8. Spread out on a parchment lined tray, cover with a lid and freeze until solid
  9. Freeze Dry
  10. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help) This would be a great Meal in a Jar Recipe… using dividers to portion
