Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat over to 375 degrees. Then brown your hamburger and make 6-8 servings of instant potatoes.
  2. Drain grease from hamburger then mix in mixed vegetables and cream of mushroom soup.
  3. pour meat/veggie/soup mix into a 13x9 inch pan and spread around evenly.
  4. spread grated cheese evenly over meat/veggie/soup mixture.
  5. spoon mashed potatoes evenly over cheese layer
