  • Cook potatoes and garlic in boiling water in large saucepan 20 min. or until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, brown meat in large nonstick skillet. Stir in flour; cook and stir 1 min. Add mixed vegetables, broth and ketchup; cook 5 min., stirring frequently.
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Drain potatoes; return to pan. Add sour cream; mash until potatoes are smooth and mixture is well blended. Stir in 1/4 cup cheese.
  • Spoon meat mixture into 8-inch square baking dish; cover with potatoes.
  • Bake 18 min. Top with remaining cheese; bake 2 min. or until melted.

Makeover - How We Did It

We took a classic recipe and gave it a makeover by replacing the butter in the mashed potatoes with both BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar for great taste and a creamy texture. In addition, we used extra-lean ground beef instead of regular ground beef. These small changes resulted in a savings of 100 calories and 15g of fat, including 5g saturated fat, per serving.


Substitute 1 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Low Fat Cottage Cheese for the sour cream. Blend the cottage cheese in a blender until smooth before using as directed.


Prepare using your favorite mix of frozen vegetables.

    I used ground turkey rather than beef and ******** veggies I had in the freezer. Recipe was easy to follow and quite tasty considering the simplicity.

    Good but needs some spice. I added some chopped onion and garlc and it still needed something more. Will try taco seasoning or chili powder.
