Ingredients

2 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup 1% or nonfat milk
½ teaspoon salt

1 pound lean ground beef (15% fat)
1 teaspoon onion powder (optional)
3 Tablespoons flour
4 cups frozen mixed vegetables

  6. Add vegetables, bouillon and water. Cook 5 minutes until bubbly.

  8. Bake 25 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
  9. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • For extra veggies and flavor, add diced onion and garlic to meat when browning.
  • Try any mix of frozen, cooked or canned and drained vegetables you have on hand.
  • Try other seasonings such as garlic powder, thyme or oregano.
  • No thyme or oregano? Try chopped cilantro.
  • No broth? Use 1 teaspoon or cube bouillon mixed into 1 cup water.
