    Has anyone tried this with mashed cauliflower? Thought it could work as a low carb option.

    It’s good but without soup maybe try with a white sauce,or sausage gravy

    I originally turned to this to use up some mashed potatoes, but it turned out to be a popular recipe to use when we had ground beef on the menu, too. Easy to make. We used ready-cooked bacon instead of cooking up just 4 strips. Different flavors of mashed potatoes (garlic, cheesy, etc) make interesting variations.

    This was very good!!! It didn't specify whether to mash the potatoes with butter and milk, so I started with just the soup. I ended up adding a little milk to ensure the potatoes didn't get dry when baked. They were perfect! I little topping of sour cream is very good with it.

    We liked this recipe and very easy to make. Just like having meatloaf and potatoes but all in one dish. We plan to flavor our potatoes differently each time, herb, garlic, sour cream along with the added C of Mush soup.
