My version of this traditional English dish is served up pronto, thanks to handy convenience products, such as jarred gravy and frozen veggies.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 (22-ounce) package frozen mashed potatoes (about 3 cups)
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 pound ground round
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen chopped onion
  • 1 cup frozen green peas and carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar beef gravy
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
What To Do:
  1. Combine potatoes and milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH, uncovered, 8 minutes, stirring once; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, cook beef and onion in a 10-inch oven proof skillet over medium heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink. Add peas and carrots, pepper, and gravy. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring often; remove mixture from heat.
  3. Preheat broiler. Spoon potatoes evenly over meat mixture, leaving 1-inch border around edge of skillet. Broil 5-1/2-inches from heat 3 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with cheese; let stand 5 minutes.



Mashed potatoes were tested in an 1100-watt microwave oven.

Chili Mac and Cheese

Talk about taking comfort food to a whole new level. This recipe combines two tried-and-true favorites: chili and macaroni and cheese. The result is one beefy, cheesy, casserole that's good till the very last bite. Oh, and did we mention it's got a crispy topping?
