Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Substitute ground turkey for ground beef, and chicken broth for beef flavored broth, if desired.
  • tip 2
    Top mashed potatoes with additional shredded cheese before serving for an extra-cheesy dish. Shredded Monterey Jack or Colby Jack cheese may be substituted for shredded Cheddar.
