Servings: 4

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Start to Finish Time: 35 minutes

Note: You'll like the convenience of this comforting dish. It calls for frozen vegetables instead of fresh and can be made the day before.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef, chuck
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 10 ounces frozen mixed vegetables (no need to thaw)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat a large (5-quart) heavy pot or Dutch oven over high. Cook beef, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic; cook until softened, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add thyme, ketchup, and flour; stir until combined. Add 1/2 cup water and vegetables. Cook until vegetables are warmed through and liquid has thickened, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon beef mixture into a 2-quart baking dish. Spread potatoes evenly over beef; using a fork, decorate potatoes with lines and peaks. Place dish on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until potatoes are lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve.

TO MAKE AHEAD: Make filling; spoon into baking dish. Spread potatoes over top, and let cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate up to 1 day. Preheat oven to 425 degrees; remove plastic wrap, and bake until potatoes are lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes.
