Snowman Party Stew

Snowman Party Stew

1 pound ground beef
1 package frozen vegetables
1 can beef gravy
2 cups mashed potatoes with a small amount of milk
16 whole black peppercorns
1/4 cup ketchup

In a skillet, cook the beef until no longer pink. Remove 24 peas and 1 carrot chunk from the stew vegetables and set aside. Add remaining vegetables to beef. Cook until vegetables are thawed. Add gravy; mix well. Pour into an ungreased 9-inch pie plate. Top with eight mashed potato snowmen, using 1 tablespoon of potato for each head and 3 tablespoons for each body.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cut the reserved carrot into eight strips. Insert one strip into each snowman for a nose, place reserved peas on each for buttons. Add peppercorns for eyes. Drizzle ketchup between head and body to form a scarf.

  1. I almost sent this to you! It came to mind when I saw the snowman theme. Maybe my two non-potato eaters would eat this?!?
