My family enjoy this basic, comforting casserole because it always satisfies. I sometimes stir in sliced black olives.—Cheryl Buker, Eagle, Colorado
- 2 pounds ground beef

- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 4 cups hot mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)

"For a bit of a change you can omit the mushrooms and add a can of drained green beans and 1 TBSP of worchestershire sauce. I have also substituted bulk pork sausage for the beef."
