This is a family favorite, literally hailed with shouts of "Hooray" as the smell is recognized. It is a very good, savory smell. MMmmmmm.

1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. sage
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1 can corn, drained
1 can green beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes
1/4 c. ketchup
1 T. mustard

In large saute pan, brown ground beef with onion. Add salt, sugar, thyme, sage,pepper, garlic, and onion. Mix well on MED heat. Add corn, green beans, tomatoes, ketchup, and mustard. Blend and heat through. Transfer beef mixture into 9 x 13 casserole dish.

Mashed Potato Topping:

4-5 med. to lg. potatoes
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. butter
1 tsp. salt, more to taste
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 pinch sugar
1-2 c. cheddar cheese, grated

So we tried this one and loved it! It was really easy for my kids to eat (always thinking about that), and Mike always had it growing up so I was a little nervous, but he said it was the best he's ever had! Thanks again!!
