  • Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Add the garlic to the skillet and cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the soup, vegetables and Worcestershire sauce. Spoon about 1/4 cup beef mixture into each baking cup. Spread or pipe about 1/4 cup potatoes on top of each.

  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the minis are hot. Top each with 1 tablespoon cheese.

  • Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Tips

Ingredient Note: You can also use regular-size foil baking cups to make this recipe. Reduce the mashed potatoes to 2 1/2 cups, and spread about 3 tablespoons on each mini. Proceed as directed above.

Alternate Preparation: To brown the tops of the minis, bake the minis as directed above for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese and broil for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are lightly browned.

As is I think the flavor is a little boring maybe due to the canned soup. My changes: Added garlic and onion to veggies. Used one can each cream of mushroom and cream of chicken. Made garlic mashed potatoes for the topping. Each component needs to taste well seasoned! Tip: I did not have a piping tool so I used a ziploc bag with the end snipped off. Mashed potatoes adapt well to icing techniques easy and fun for the kids! Read More

I cooked this recipe a few different ways. I added biscuit on the bottom. And it came out good just make sure that you cook the dough before adding the meat mixture. My family loved it. I would totally make it again. Read More

I made a couple changes for practicality. I used a casserole dish and I doubled the amount of garlic and vegetables. It was wonderful! Read More
