This was a hit! I doubled the cheese (we love cheese!) and baked in two pie pans. Topped with ketchup. Very tasty and a nice way to get veggies into a meal! Thanks for posting!

This was good but didn't add the peas. Also added onions and garlic to the ground beef. Will make again.

Great base recipe, leaving room for personalization!! My alterations: I fried it off in a cast iron pan, drained the meat, sprayed with a little Pam, returned mixture to skillet and baked it right in that same skillet. I used green beans, yuck peas. I used more milk, because I used skim. No cheese. Garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. yummeriffic. Thanks for the recipe, it was just what I was looking for.
