This is what I had.....
This is what I made.....
I call it Short Cut Sheperds Pie!
It literally took me 7 mins to cook the instant mashed potatoes (follow instructions on box) and then I put them over the 2 cans of soup that I had poured into a 13 x 9 casserole dish. Heat in oven on 350 for approx 15 mins until top of mashed potatoes are golden brown and the soup under neath is heated.
Although it doesn't necessarily look the prettiest, it is very good and hearty! And it was C-H-E-A-P!
Box of instant mashed pototoes $4.69 (didn't use the whole box) and 2 cans of sirloin & vegetable soup (2/$1.98 on sale this past week at Safeway). If I take half the price of the box of pototoes $2.34 plus the $1.98 for the soup it turns out to be .86 per person.
Fed all 5 of us and even had some left overs.
How's that for being quick, easy and frugal!
