So, potatoes were on sale, and I bought a 5lb bag - and then once we were tired of mashed, baked and scalloped potatoes, I started searching for recipes that I could make with potatoes. I found a variation of this one at Allrecipies.com. This one was so good and easy - and hubby loved it!
Here's what you need
1lb lean ground beef
1 diced zucchini
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup tomato puree
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup shredded cheese (any variety you have on hand)
1 package refrigerated crescent rolls
In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Saute zucchini & onion until crisp tender. Add the cooked beef and tomato puree (or tomato sauce) and season to your liking. I added garlic powder too.
To make the mashed potatoes, I peeled and cubed them, and then boiled them in a large pot of water. Then I added a little bit of milk and mashed them up.
Spread potatoes in an 11 x 7 x 2 baking dish. Top with beef mixture, sprinkle with cheese.
Unroll crescent dough. Separate into four rectangles; arrange three rectangles over the casserole.
Bake at 375 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes until top is browned.
Hope you enjoy!
