Winter Day Dinner

In the middle of winter, I often rely on this recipe to warm us up! My husband doesn't care for noodles, so I look for different ways to serve potatoes. - Linda Hagendorn, Rockville, Maryland

    What I love about this recipe is that the cheese sauce compliments the ground beef and potatoes but doesn't overpower them. The only change I made was to use a can of green bans instead of the peas.

    My husband loved this dish! I omitted the peas and used red potatoes. Yum! -Lori in WI.

    I always know when I have made a dinner that my husband loves. He will always tell me that "You burned some pretty good slop, tonight Woman."Happy to say this recipe was the best. I thought I would have some left for lunch the next day. Between my hubby and son there was nothing left.It's really easy to make an it's delicious. Making it again tonight for dinner. This time I'll take out some for my lunch before I call everyone to dinner.
