Turn mashed potatoes and a few pantry staples into cozy comfort food. This recipe is really flexible, so if you have extra veggies on hand, stir them into the beef mixture for even more goodness. —Sharon Tipton, Winter Garden, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 3, 2014

"This is a wonderful recipe! I made it for my family to help my mom and I did not need any help. I have made it 2 times now and the second time I added one bag of microwavable mixed veggies. I also used instant mashed potatoes. Also, the broiling is optional if you don't care about it looking professional. I used 2 lbs. of beef to make it feed 6 instead of four and used garlic powder instead of cloves. It was a great, quick dish for a teen to make after a busy day!"

"I would add one drained can of corn to the bottom and omit the taco seasoning and cheese and add gravy or cream soup to the hamburger."

"Easy to make and fast! Very good tasting. I think next time though I might add a can of corn to it before the potatoes go on it."
