ingredients

directions

  • In large pot, brown beef with onions (I boil my beef, drain to reduce fat content, then add onions I've already sauteed).
  • Mix remaining BASE ingredients in large bowl.
  • Add beef and onions.
  • At this point I placed 1/3 of meat mixture in a cassarole dish, added 1 cup of each frozen veggie and layered on 1/3 of mashed potatoes.
  • Bake at 350F for an hour, or until heated through.
  • While dinner is baking up, I pack up the cooled remaining meat mixture dividing meat mixture left into 2 labeled gallon ziplock bags.
  • Divide remaining veggies into labled 2 qt freezer bags.
  • Divide remaining mashed potatoes into 2 labeled gallon freezer bags.
  • For convenience, I actually staple the bag of meat mixture, veggies and mashed potatoes together into 2 dinner groups to make it all easier to find in my freezer. Obviously, staple above the zip on the bag when stapling together. :-).
