Spicy Au Gratin Beef Bake

Rose Daly


I had some boxed Au gratin Potatoes and some ground beef and really didn't know what to with it,so I started to look a lot of recipes( and I mean a lot :)). And then I got an idea form one of those "TOH" Ground Beef cookbooks.I want to thank Domestic Goddess & Marlene for coming up with the name for this recipe :).
