I know once you try this recipe, you will fall in love with it.  It is so simple and delicious!  It is a true family favorite and brings back memories of when your grandma used to make it for you!

8 cups of instant mashed potatoes ($1.00)
1 cup of cheddar cheese ($0.75)
1-2 tablespoons of sour cream ($0.25)
8-16 ounces of brown gravy ($0.53)
1 pound of ground beef ($2.13)
16 ounces of frozen mixed vegetables ($0.99)

Start by pre-heating your oven to 375.  Prepare gravy according to the instructions on the package.  Prepare instant mashed potatoes.  At the end, add the cheddar cheese and sour cream.  Make sure you turn off the the heat so that the potatoes don’t burn.  In a 10 inch skillet, brown the hamburger and drain any excess fat.

Prepare a 9 x 13 inch glass pan by spraying lightly with non-stick spray.  In a large glass bowl, mix the browned hamburger, gravy, and entire bag of frozen vegetables.  Pour that mixture into the glass baking pan and cover with mashed potatoes.

Bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes.


Like I had mentioned in the video, this recipe would serve 4 or even six for only around $0.50 a person.  Try this at home- I know you will love it!
