Six ingredients and 15 minutes later, this comforting main dish is in the oven.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
cups frozen mixed vegetables (from 1-lb bag)
jar (12 oz) beef gravy
bag (28 oz) frozen potatoes O’Brien with peppers and onions, thawed
cups shredded Swiss cheese (8 oz)
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12x8-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in mixed vegetables, gravy and salt. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are thawed and mixture is thoroughly heated.
In baking dish, layer 3 cups of the potatoes and 1 cup of the cheese. Spoon ground beef mixture over cheese. Top with remaining potatoes. Cover with foil.
Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until bubbly. Remove foil. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake uncovered 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with paprika before serving.
The frozen potato mixture contains bell peppers and onions, but if your family likes lots of onion flavor, feel free to add 1/4 cup chopped onion to the meat mixture before cooking.
To complete the meal, add a tossed green salad topped with your favorite dressing.
