Hearty Beef and Potato Bake by Jackie

This is what it looks like before adding the topping.
I didn't have a picture of it with the cheese and onions. 
2 cups cooked ground beef
3/4 c. chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. pepper
16 oz. bag frozen, mixed vegetables
1 18 oz. jar beef gravy
6 cups hot mashed potatoes (I made them in the slowcooker with this recipe:
2 cups French's fried onions, divided
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Brown ground beef with 3/4 c. chopped onion and garlic.
Mix 1/2 cup of fried onions and 1 cup of cheese into the potatoes.
Spread potato mixture in the bottom and on the sides of a greased 9"x13" aluminum pan to form a shell.
Mix gravy, meat, veggies and seasonings together and pour into potato shell.
Cover and freeze.
Place remaining cheese and fried onions in separate small freezer bags.

Serving Day:
Thaw completely.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, or until heated through.
Top with remaining cheese and fried onions.
Bake for 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted and onions are golden brown.


  1. Everyone enjoyed this tasty dish! Loved the French fried onions!

  2. Very hearty meal! Enjoyed very much. Plenty for all of us.

  3. FYI: I successfully cooked this from frozen by keeping it covered and baking on 350 for 90 minutes and then uncovering and baking another 30 minutes.
