Favorite Hamburger Casserole

This is another one of my Grandmother's recipes.   She called it "Combination".   Sometimes she'd use creamed corn, I use regular.   It's a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.



Favorite Hamburger Casserole (Gram's Combination)

1/2t ea garlic powder and onion powder

  3. Bake for 25 minutes, sprinkle with cheese. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: serves 6

NOTES : For an even faster version, I buy 2 boxes of frozen Boston Market mashed potatoes, microwave them and add them to the recipe as directed.
