Here's the recipe, but be sure to note my comments below.
1 lb. ground beef
2 c. hot mashed potatoes (the recipe said you could use instant and that's what I used)
4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 cloves of garlic
4 c. frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 c. beef gravy
Heat oven to 375. Brown meat and drain. Mix potatoes, cram cheese and half the shredded cheese and garlic until well blended. Stir vegetables and gravy into meat. Spoon into 9-inch square baking dish. Cover with potato mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through. Makes 6 servings.
My comments: My dish turned out a little soupy. I don't think I got my mashed potatoes "stiff" enough. I also added the whole jar of gravy, but I don't think that had that much to do with it. I thought the cream cheese was what made this dish! It was great and we loved it! It was easy!
