This is a "must have" recipe for college students and beginning cooks as it is SO EASY--especially if you use canned gravy and instant potatoes. My kids didn't complain about eating their vegetables either! I will be cooking this often on "soccer night" when I have no time to fix dinner.
My whole family LOVES this - my daughter, who can be finicky, asked me to make it again the next night. I only made 2 packages of gravy & it seemed to be plenty. The potatoes need to be fairly stiff - the 1st time I had made them too creamy & it turned out on the soupy side (although my daughter insisted she liked it that way).
I added some essence of Emeril orginal seasoning, and used butter herb instand mashed potatos (that is what I had in the house). I used 2 cans of gravy rather than packaged gravy mix (again it is what I had in the house) I was awsome!!
This was very good. DH was a little disappointed that it was like a pot pie with no crust...that's his favorite part. I might try this in a pie shells and serve mashed potatoes on the side. It was a very good recipe though. Thanks for posting!
I really enjoyed this and will definitely be making this in the future. I made it just as the recipe stated too. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
