Congratulations Casserole - Casserole on a plate.Why the silly name? I put this together with leftovers and pantry items for dinner. My 6 year old who loves cooking and recipes asked me if I followed a new recipe or I made this one up. When I told her it was my own, she quickly responded;"Congratulations, it's very good!" I just thought that was too cute.:)

That being said, it passed the test with 4 kids. Not a single complaint, I have to admit it is really good, comfort food. The best part about it, I used leftover ground beef and potatoes that would have been tossed otherwise.

I find it very helpful personally to keep some basic pantry staples on hand for those times when you want to whip up something quick.

Total Time: About 10 minutes

Yield: Around 8-10

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/3 cup ground beef
  • 1 envelope taco or burrito seasoning
  • 3 15 oz. cans drained mixed vegetables
  • 3 10.5 oz cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 3 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 1/4 cup mashed potatoes
  • dash of basil

My ground beef was originally prepared with an envelope of taco seasoning added. I would suggest adding this to yours as it gives it great flavor!

I imagine this would also turn out quite tasty with leftover chicken if that is what you happen to have. Just use up those leftovers, it's like getting a free meal! :)

Steps:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, taco or burrito seasoning, mixed vegetables and mushroom soups.
  2. Spread into a 13 by 9 inch casserole dish.
  3. Sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Spread potatoes over all, sprinkle with dried basil. It tastes good and makes it look nicer.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and enjoy!
  7. Congratulations Casserole - Cooked casserole in a pan.
