  • 3+ lbs. ground beef
  • onion soup mix
  • 2 cans creamed corn
  • 1 can regular corn
  • 1+ potato per person
  • (milk, salt, pepper, etc.—whatever you put in your mashed potatoes)
  • cheese


  1. Peel and cut up potatoes and put in a pot to boil.
  2. Brown ground beef with onion soup mix (I use my 12 qt. Dutch oven, Big Bertha, and then I can bake it in the same pot—saves on dishes and hassle).
  3. Pour cream corn and regular corn (drained) on top of ground beef (I’ve made my own creamed corn for this and it’s immensely better, but in a rush, there’s nothing wrong with using the canned stuff, eh?).
  4. Mash and season potatoes.
  5. Put mashed potatoes on top of corn.
  6. Top with cheese.
  7. Bake at 400° for 30+ minutes, until slightly browned on top (you can turn on your broiler, too, for a couple mins)
  8. *This recipe is very versatile—you can make it bigger, smaller, whatever. Throw some bacon bits in there on the potatoes, chives, anything you wanna fancy it up with. So easy and a big crowd pleaser. Definitely a HarvestHer friendly recipe.
  9. *We have one crew member who has a gluten allergy, so I made this without the onion soup mix and just seasoned my ground beef really well with minced onions, salt, pepper, and a little cornstarch for thickening. Turned out great!

Working the harvest in the US each year gives me a chance to come “home” for a few months. My harvest story began when my dad hired my now husband, Mike, to cut his wheat 20 some years ago.

  • Potatoes
  • butter
  • parmesan cheese
  • garlic salt


  1. I saw the potatoes just recently on Facebook and, of course, thought I could remember it but, nonetheless, tried it?
  2. I melted 1/2 cup butter in a 9x13 brownie pan.
  3. Spread lots of parmesan cheese and a little garlic salt over the butter.
  4. Scrubbed, then cut 4 baking potatoes in half and lay cut side in butter.
  5. I baked 40 minutes at 350°.
  6. I thought they were fantastic and a plus is they ship well to the field. And could be considered a utensil-free food!

Nancy Eberts – Eberts Harvesting

As I write today, I have to be honest and admit my biggest accomplishment today was completely clearing and cleaning the counters in my kitchen in the house!

Besides the trip to town for groceries, putting them away and making 3 chocolate and 2 peach pies for supper, I spent what seemed like hours doing dishes by hand as I have an “out of commission” dishwasher! Ten people around the table and kitchen island, morning and night, makes for a lot of dishes.
