Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:30

1 pound hamburger
1 onion
1 carrot
1 cup peas
1 dash garlic powder
1 dash pepper
2/3 cup milk
4 tablespoons margarine
2 2/3 cups mashed potato flakes
1 can mushroom soup
2 slices cheddar cheese
3 dashes paprika

Fry hamburger, onion, carrot and peas in skillet, add garlic and pepper. Don't forget to drain the grease unless you have a cardiologist handy - full time.

Add mushroom soup to mixture and dump into bottom of some sort of baking pan.

Boil 2 2/3 cup water, milk and margarine in pan. When it comes to a boil - which doesn't take as long as you think - and if you let it boil over it can make a heck of a mess - anyway, when it comes to a boil, remove from heat and add the potato flakes stirring vigorously until it becomes a paste-like gloppy substanceā€¦or at least it looks like your idea of mashed potatoes.

Spread this substance evenly over the hamburger mixture. Place slices of cheese on top and criss-cross the paprika. Cover the entire dish and put in the oven at 375 for 1/2 hour to 1 hour. Serve to shepherds or shepherdesses as the case may be.
