I was going to wait until tomorrow to post the first recipe, but decided to go ahead and post this simple one. I wanted to wait until I went to the grocery store to see the current prices.
1 pound hamburger meat
shredded cheese of your choosing
onion (diced about 1/3 cup)
Brown hamburger meat with diced onions. Drain off fat.
Cook potatoes (either boxed flakes or regular potatoes)
Spread hamburger meat on the bottom on a baking dish
Put a couple of stripes of ketchup across top of meat
Spread mashed potatoes across the top
Sprinkle cheese over top
Place in a pre-heated oven (350 degrees) for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
You can also add a can of regular corn over the top of the meat. I just serve the corn on the side.
This meal cost probably about $8.00. I think that might be on the high side. It is pretty good and filling too.
