Not traditional by any stretch. If you want to make this even quicker, use store-bought mashed potatoes from the refrigerated section of your local grocery store instead of mashing your own. If you've never made mashed potatoes, give Mashed Potatoes a try.
- 5 potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 (4 1/2 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
- 1 (15 ounce) can mixed vegetables, drained (Veg-All works well)
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup
- salt and pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add peeled and quartered potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and make mashed potatoes in your favorite fashion, then set aside.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until brown. Drain. Stir in mushrooms, mixed vegetables, mushroom soup, celery soup, salt and pepper and heat through. Pour into prepared baking dish.
- Cover the beef mixture with the mashed potatoes. Dot the top with butter.
- Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes, until potatoes are golden, and mixture is hot and bubbly.
