“Not traditional by any stretch. If you want to make this even quicker, use store-bought mashed potatoes from the refrigerated section of your local grocery store instead of mashing your own. If you've never made mashed potatoes, give Mashed Potatoes a try.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 (4 1/2 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can mixed vegetables, drained (Veg-All works well)
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add peeled and quartered potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and make mashed potatoes in your favorite fashion, then set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until brown. Drain. Stir in mushrooms, mixed vegetables, mushroom soup, celery soup, salt and pepper and heat through. Pour into prepared baking dish.
  4. Cover the beef mixture with the mashed potatoes. Dot the top with butter.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes, until potatoes are golden, and mixture is hot and bubbly.
