    not sure what the original name of this recipe is but we have called it mashed potato goop since we were little kids growing up in a Slavic family and that's kinda what it looks like when it's done.It is a mixture of ground beef, onions(optional), creamed corn,and mashed potatoes.

      I made a slight change in the ground beef, in that I use 1 1/2 pounds of the beef & 1/2 pound of mild Italian sausage, crumbled & mixed into the beef! Other than that, I followed the recipe right on down, & had a very tasty main dish that was part of my one-time contribution to a local group that helps feed the homeless! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
