Ingredients

2 medium
sweet potatoes, peeled and chunked
1 Tbsp
olive oil
4
cloves garlic, minced
1 medium
onion, diced
1/2 lb
your favorite sausage, no casings. i like store made.
1/2 lb
lean ground beef
1/4 tsp
black pepper
6 oz
dark beer
1 1/2 Tbsp
cornstarch
2 Tbsp
cold water
15 oz
canned corn, i prefer frozen. green beans work as well.
8 1/4 oz
creamed corn, omit if using beans.
1/2 c
milk, 2%
2 Tbsp
butter, i use lightly salted
1 Tbsp
brown sugar, firmly packed
salt to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400
spray a regular loaf pan with cooking spray
2
Boil potatoes until tender in a large pan.About 15 min.
3
Combine olive oil, garlic and onions in a large skillet and saute for 5 min or until tender. Add sausage,beef and pepper. Saute until meat is cooked through..about 8 min. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by half..about 4 min.
I usually remove the veggies after cooking and saute beef/sausage separately..then drain fat. You can do all together..might have more flavor!
4
In a small glass mix the cornstarch with water. Add this to meat and stir until thickened. Remove from heat
5
Spread the meat mixture in bottom of loaf pan, in small bowl mix the corn/creamed corn together and layer if over the meat.
6
When potatoes are cooked, drain and return to pan. Add milk, butter and brown sugar, salt to taste, then mash till smooth. Spread over corn mixture
7
Bake 35 min or until potatoes are lightly browned at the edges
