There are so many recipes for this one floating around.

But I don’t “do” the fussy ones. I just make it simple, quick and tasty. Just how I remember. My family and I have started the “holy cats we are never home but always in the car” stage of life and I honestly don’t understand how anyone has time to make long drawn out meals on the weeknights.

So I stick with simple. This doesn’t disappoint.

Of course if you want to add your own flair (spice up the meat – mash your own potatoes) by all means, go for it! Here’s what I throw together. My girls loved it!
