Mashed Potato Beef Casserole Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe came out of my mother's cookbook. The smudges and splatters show that Mom used it extensively to feed our large family. The tarragon really comes through to make a flavorful main dish. Now I prepare it for our four children and six grandchildren. —Helen McGeorge, Abbotsford, British Columbia
