Ground Beef and Mashed Potato Casserole

Ground Beef and Mashed Potato Casserole

This is really easy if you have leftover mashed potatoes. If not you can always make some.

Ground beef
Mashed potatoes
Worcestershire sauce
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Fresh spinach (cut up fairly small)
Cheese (2 to 4 oz, cubed)

Preheat oven to 350.

Brown the meat with Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Drain off most, but not all, of the grease. Add about 2 tablespoons flour and mix until the flour is no longer visible. Pour in milk, about half as deep as your meat. Stir. Add spinach. Bring to a simmer. Stir and turn off heat.

Butter a casserole dish or glass pan. Spread in mashed potatoes. Pour in meat mixture. Top with cheese. Cover and bake for about 30 minutes.

Easy Chicken Florentine

Easy Chicken Florentine

You can alter this in many ways. My goal was to make this as easy a humanly possible, with the illusion of being a complex gourmet dish. In other words, I wanted to make something really wonderful and be lazy about it. It can be done!

2 Chicken breasts
Fresh spinach (about ½ bag)
Garlic (5 or 6 cloves)
Cream of mushroom soup (condensed or semi-condensed 1 can)
Bacon (5 slices)
Shredded cheddar (8 oz)
Lemon juice (2 or 3 tablespoons)
Buttermilk (2 cups)
Butter (for greasing the bottom of the dish)

Cook bacon and crumble or cut up. Butter a casserole dish. Rinse the fresh spinach and toss in the bottom of the casserole dish. Top with cheddar. Place chicken on top of cheddar. Toss in garlic, lemon juice, bacon, cream of mushroom soup, and buttermilk. Top with parmesan. Cover. Bake at 350 for 30 to 45 minutes, or untill bubble and the cheese starts to brown.
