It starts by browning one pound of hamburger in a skillet. When that is cooked and crumbled, add one chopped carrot and one chopped onion. When those are cooked add one cup of frozen peas.
Then stir in a can of cream of celery and transfer to a deep round casserole dish or pie plate.
Then top with prepared mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes can be freshly made, instant potaotes, already prepared out of a package, or leftover.
Then top with shredded cheddar cheese.....
....and bake until bubbly, brown and delicious!
Then serve it up and eat! We enjoyed ours with some buttered cresent rolls.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we do! And if you do make this using holiday leftovers such as the mashed potatoes, carrots, peas, etc., no one would ever guess!
