Quidditch Players Pie

I found a recipe online for Quidditch Players Pie a while back and re-vamped it with the ingredients I have on hand.  I thought it was a fun name for Shephard's Pie... which is basically what it is.  My kids really enjoyed this dish and I almost forgot to take a photo until there was only one scoop left in the dish and it didn't last long.  No leftovers tonight!  This is a really great way to use up some of those leftover mashed potatoes that never seem to get eaten once they have gotten put in the fridge.  Enjoy with some Frank's Red Hot sauce - I know we did!

Quidditch Players Pie

1 pound hamburger
1 1/2 cups of frozen mixed veggies (carrots, peas, green beans, corn - or use fresh of whatever you have on hand)
3 tablespoons brown gravy mix (I used the Tone's brand from Sam's Club, but you can buy it in envelopes also I think)
a few dumps of Frank's Red Hot Sauce
up to 2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes, or make some fresh!
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
hungarian paprika

Brown the hamburger in a pan and drain grease.  Add the mixed vegetables and cook a little longer until they are softened a bit then add the gravy mix stirring well - add the Frank's Red Hot sauce here if you'd like also.  Just a tablespoon or two for a little extra flavor.  Dump hamburger mixture into a greased 8x8 cassrole pan.  Spread with your leftover mashed potatoes and top with cheese.  Sprinkle paprika over cheese.  Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes uncovered.

When serving on individual plates my kids and I like to pour extra Frank's over top of our helping of the hotdish.  Very delicious and an all-in-one meal everyone will enjoy!
