I got this recipe off of The Food Network after watching Paula prepare it on her show. It is delicious! Although the original recipe didn't call for cheese, I sometimes add some between the meat and Bisquick layers. Rich and decadent! Recipe courtesy of

    Potato Layer: Peel and slice potatoes about 1/4 inch thick. Cook in boiling water for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Whip potatoes with electric mixer until moderately smooth - a few lumps are okay. Heat to warm 1/2 cup of the milk and add to potatoes, along with 1/2 cup butter and the sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Whip til mixed, adding a little more milk, if needed, for the desired consistency.

    Spray a 9 by 9 by 2-inch (or similar) baking pan with cooking spray. Layer half-way up with the mashed potatoes. Next, spread the mixed vegetables over the potatoes, then the meat. Pour Bisquick over the meat. Melt 4 tablespoons butter and drizzle over top.
