Ingredients (6)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (4)

  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. 2

    In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes with the dressing until smooth.

  3. 3

    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook the onions until they have softened and turn golden, about 5 minutes. Add the ground meat, generously season with salt and pepper, and cook, breaking up any clumps of meat with a wooden spatula, until the meat is browned, another 5 minutes.

  4. 4

    If needed, drain any excess fat from the meat mixture, then stir in the frozen peas and carrots. Pour the mixture into a 1½-quart baking dish and spread mashed potatoes evenly over the top; bake uncovered for 30 minutes, or until golden.
