1 lb. ground beef
1/2 medium onion chopped (roughly 1/2 cup)
1 garlic clove crushed or minced
3/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups beef broth
4 cups frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, corn, and green beans)
1 pound white or russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
1/4 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
Preheat oven to 350°F and coat a 1.5 quart casserole dish with cooking spray
Peel and cut potatoes into cubes, and place the potatoes and a pinch of salt into a pot of cold water
Cover, and bring to boil. Remove cover and boil for 10-12 minutes, until fork tender
While the potatoes are cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat
Add ground beef, onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the skillet and cook, breaking up the meat, until browned. Drain excess grease.
Stir in tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth. Add vegetables, bring to a simmer, cook for 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
While the meat mixture is simmering, drain the potatoes and return to the pot
Add ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, Greek yogurt or sour cream, milk, and 1 tsp salt to the potatoes. With a potato masher or hand mixer, mash to desired consistency.
Add the meat mixture to the prepared casserole dish, then top with the mashed potatoes and remaining cheese.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until heated through, and cheese and potatoes are slightly browned.
PRO TIP: assemble it and refrigerate or freeze until ready to bake and serve
