2 medium
sweet potatoes, peeled and chunked
1 Tbsp
olive oil
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
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


1Preheat oven to 400
spray a regular loaf pan with cooking spray
2Boil potatoes until tender in a large pan.About 15 min.
3Combine 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!
4In a small glass mix the cornstarch with water. Add this to meat and stir until thickened. Remove from heat
5Spread the meat mixture in bottom of loaf pan, in small bowl mix the corn/creamed corn together and layer if over the meat.
6When 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
7Bake 35 min or until potatoes are lightly browned at the edges
