Introduction

I made this with the idea of using as few dishes as possible! It turned out hearty and even my toddler enjoyed it.

*Note: I counted browning the meat and cooking the potatoes as "prep time," and just baking the assembled dish as "cooking time."

Ingredients

    1 lb extra lean ground beef
    1 tbsp Tex Mex seasoning
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 tsp low-sodium beef boullion
    2 cups 1% milk, divided
    4 tbsp whole wheat flour
    2 cups frozen mixed veggies
    6 medium white potatoes
    2 tbsp butter
    4 tbsp Parmesan, divided
    Salt and pepper to taste

Tips

I kept the seasoning simple with this recipe, knowing that my picky 20-month-old would be having some too. You could play around with different herbs and spices, per your tastes.


Directions

Boil the potatoes until done; alternately, microwave them for 10-15 minutes. Set aside.

Meanwhile, cook the ground beef over medium heat, draining when mostly done. Add in seasoning and garlic, cook until completely done, and move into a 2.5 qt/2.3L casserole dish.

Using the same pan, sprinkle in the flour, and then pour in 1 cup of milk. Add the beef boullion, and stir often until thickened, around 10 minutes. Pour over the meat and mix well.

Using the same pan, saute the veggies until cooked, around 5-8 minutes. Spread evenly on top of the meat mixture.

In a large bowl, mash the potatoes, slowly adding in the butter, 2 tbsp Parmesan, and remaining 1 cup of milk. Mash and mix until desired consistency, adding extra milk if too thick. Spread evenly on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan on top.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, then broil 3-5 minutes until the Parmesan is slightly browned/toasted.
