4 to 6 servings SERVINGS


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 jar (12 oz.) home-style beef gravy
  • 1 package (10 oz.) frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef until well-browned and thoroughly cooked through. Carefully drain fat and return beef to skillet on stovetop.
  • Stir in gravy and vegetables; bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
  • While beef mixture is still in the skillet, spoon on the prepared mashed potatoes, forming 8 mounds. Sprinkle cheese over potatoes.
  • Continue to simmer mixture until potatoes are hot and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.This recipe originally aired in the February 2008 issue of Heart of the Home.
