I used a butter & herb mashed potato pouch and instead of spicy v-8 juice, I pureed a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes, which was really yummy. Next time I might use roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Very good recipe!

I added mozzarella and cheddar cheese to the potatoe mixture and I put the meat mixture on tin foil and then when I rolled it up I just tranferred it to the dish. Way easier this way!! Very good recipe.
