Cheap Beef in Potato Nests

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Aroostook

Here is an inexpensive quick supper! When we were kids my mom used to serve the tomato soup version of this recipe...We called it SOS and would make "volcanoes" out of this dish. Maybe she should have renamed it "Stopplayingwith yourfood,dammit!"

Definitely 5 star for what I was looking for. Something cheap, easy and tasty. I was surprised it was that good, it looked very nice with the shredded cheddar and scallions. Filling to say the least. Good with a bit of sour cream on top also. Thanks.
