Mashed Potato Hot Dish

My cousin gave me this simple savory recipe. Whenever I'm making homemade mashed potatoes, I throw in a few extra spuds so I can make this dish for supper the next night. —Tanya Abernathy, Yacolt, Washington

    Good way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. We put it in a 9 X 13 pan and had more than 4 servings. We tried it twice with variations: chicken in place of beef; tomato soup in place of cream of chicken; corn in place of green beans and more cheese. It was bland so we added onion and garlic salt. Also, a little cumin and chili powder to taste. Or Italian seasoning. paprika and parsley.

    Delicious and so easy! I used Quoran meatless crumbles instead of ground beef; and meatless potato soup.Thank you, Tanya, for sharing this recipe.

    Absolutely great, easy, and my husband loves it. It's also a nice, mild recipe for anyone who might be having tummy troubles. The variations that people have written about below also look worth trying!

    This is a great and easy recipe - my mom made this back in the 60's except with condensed cream of TOMATO soup. I've made it for years that way and everyone loves it. We use an ice cream scoop, the kind with the lever to put the mashed potatoes on; makes it look fancier.

    This is a keeper! My young boys and husband all loved it and they can be tough to please... I did tweak the recipe a little by using Cream of Mushroom w/ Roasted Garlic Soup (Campbell's), 1 can of corn (drained), and about a 1/4-1/2 tsp each of cummin, chili powder, Italian seasoning, paprika, and dried crushed parsley, I also added about 3/4-1cup shredded cheese between the meat mixture and mashed potatoes as well as added 1/4-1/2cup of shredded cheese on top of the mashed potatoes. I also used a 3qt baking dish since I added the can of corn and it was a perfect fit. SO GOOD and SO QUICK!!! YUM!!!

    This was a great recipe. I seasoned the ground beef with a little garlic salt and used cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken. I was amazed at how good this simple recipe was! It was not as good reheated as leftovers, but was still good.

    I love this dish, instead of the cream of chicken I use cream of mushroom soup and replace the beans with whole corn. We call this Shepherds Pie.

    Instead of cream of chicken use tomato soup and this what my family calls Shepherd's Pie

    Quick and easy and very good!!! I did use about a can and a half of the cream of chicken soup because we like it creamy.
