I'm thinking about making one but this will be my first attempt. What I have is hamburger meat, green beans, cheese, and mashed potatoes. I'm just wondering if that's really enough and if so, can someone give me a recipe or explain to me how to make it? It's hard googling recipes when you don't know exactly what you're looking for.

easy peasy. Ground beef, then the veggie, then the mashed potatoes and cheese on top. Throw it in the oven to melt the cheese.

I found a way to make it that is quite delicious. I brown the ground beef then drain the grease then I put it back in the pan with some barbecue sauce. Then put it in a dish put corn, mashed potatoes, and cheese then put in the oven to melt the cheese.

I brown the beef.



Put the mashed potatoes in the bottom, then the ground beef, then creamed corn, then cheese on top, and bake. But I add other shit, depending on who's eating it.

That sounds good! I was wondering what you could mix with the meat to make it even better. I don't like corn, though.

It does it makes the meat taste really good. Yeah me and SO are picky so we use corn. But our family makes it with green beans. So maybe try that? You can do whatever you like to it and it will still taste good. One of my family members made it and put pie dough on top of the mashed potatoes it was really good that way to.
