This was great... everyone liked it including my picky husband (I really didn't think he would like it). He asked me to make it just like this every time.<br/><br/>So for me and anyone that wants to try it my way... I accidentally mixed two recipes together and it worked out great and it was mostly this recipe.<br/><br/>I added a packet of taco seasoning to the ground beef (1 1/4 oz or 1/4 cup). Rather than canned veggies, I dumped in a 16 oz bag of frozen veggies: Flav-R-Pac Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry Combo. I let it cook until it was mostly done and then added in the mushroom soup and only 1 teaspoon garlic salt (the taco seasoning had a lot of flavor). At the last minute I added a drained can of corn because I decided I wanted more veggies.<br/><br/>I spread some of the potatoes on the bottom of the baking dish and some on the top. Also I used only about 1/3 cup of mexican blend cheese (and left it off my part since I don't like cheese). For the mashed potatoes I used Honest Earth Instant (they are delicious and made of real potatoes... but really easy for a quick shepherd's pie meal).<br/><br/>Thanks for a great and quick meal recipe! I'll definitely add this into my cooking rotation.<br/><br/>I think this recipe is very versatile... you could use any combo of veggies you like

Very good. I used a bag of frozen instead of canned veggies. Oh, and added cheese for last 5 min of cooking. A keeper!

Great recipe! I only had a can of cream of celery on hand, so it replaced the mushroom soup but it was so tasty! Such a simple recipe that gets such a great reaction from the people who get to eat & enjoy it! I will be making this for dinner lots!

This was super easy to put together and delicious. I used fresh garlic instead of garlic salt, frozen vegetables and added cayenne pepper and a bit of paprika. Thanks!

This is probably the most requested dish by my DH. I don't mind, either, because it is super quick to make. I fry up 1lb meat with garlic powder (not garlic salt) and onions. I steam some frozen veggies and chop them if they are not bite sized. Then I mix everything together in the pan with some Cream of Mushroom. Finally, I top with garlic mashed potatoes (made from spuds with the left over water from steaming the veggies) and top with a nice Grana Padano cheese. This cheese is excellent on with the dish.

This was a really good, cheap, and inexpensive meal. I did make a couple of minor changes. I didnt have any onion so I just used onion powder and instead of garlic salt I used garlic powder. I also used half of a can of green beans and a half a can of corn. I also used one packet of Betty Crocker sour cream and chives mashed potatoes. Made just the right amount for it. Thanks so much! Will make again and again!!!! :)

I was really skeptical about how this was going to taste with the mushroom soup instead of the usual gravy. It was so good, and so easy! I used betty crocker herb and butter potatoes and frozen peas and corn.

Great recipe, I used real garlic and added some salt instead of garlic salt and I used fresh carrots (they need to be par-boiled first) and frozen peas/corn. I used condensed mushroom soup and added some milk. It turned out perfectly! Thanks, I'll make this again!

Loved that it was simple & fast. I added 1C beef broth & still thought I would prefer it with a little more sauce. Maybe use 2 cans crm mush soup next time. But was still delicious. Just what I was looking for. Thx
