Double-up two favorites, with sloppy Joe flavor from prepared sauce jazzing up ground beef and instant mashed potatoes adding a crowning touch.
lb lean ground beef
cup chopped onion (1 medium)
cups Green Giant™ frozen mixed vegetables
can (15.5-oz) sloppy Joe sandwich sauce
pouch roasted garlic mashed potatoes (from 7.2-oz. pkg.)
cups hot water
tablespoons margarine or butter
Heat oven to 350°F. In large nonstick skillet, cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.
Add mixed vegetables and sandwich sauce; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Spoon into ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish.
Meanwhile, cook mashed potatoes as directed on package, using hot water, milk and margarine. Let stand 5 minutes. Spoon or pipe potatoes around edges of hot beef mixture. Sprinkle paprika over potatoes.
Bake at 350°F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated.
Look for sloppy Joe sauce in the grocery store canned tomato and pizza sauce aisle. Taste the sauce before you use it in this casserole; sweeten it with about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, if your desire.
Use lean ground turkey in place of ground beef.
Serve this shepherd's pie with sliced fresh fruit or a tossed salad.
