  3. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the seasoning sauces of your choice
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. When the hamburger is cooked; add peas and carrots and creamed corn. Let simmer 5 minutes.
  5. Spray a 9 x 13 pan or 3-quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray, pour the meat and vegetable mixture in bottom of the pan. Spread mashed potatoes evenly over the meat mixture and sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
  6. Switch oven setting to BROIL and heat the casserole until cheese on top is bubbly or lightly browned. Watch this as you don’t want burned cheese. It should only take about 2 minutes.
