I’m not sure how Almond Joy and Twizzlers did so poorly. Those are always the candies that I fish out of my kids’ treat sacks.
Now for a nifty idea for an easy dinner that is different and unexpectedly delicious.
I was intrigued by the idea of using deli beef. Who knew that it would be so good filled with the veg and mash? And all of that gravy? Mmmmm. True comfort food that has a elegant feel from its presentation.
3 cups warm prepared mashed potatoes (homemade or the refrigerated store bought kind)
1 (16 oz) package frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
12 thick slices deli roast beef (about 2 pounds)
18 ounces of beef gravy from a jar
1. Preheat oven to 375℉.
2. In a large bowl, combine mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables; mix well.
3. Place an equal amount of the mixture at one end of each roast beef slice; roll up like a wrap.
4. place beef rolls seam side down in a large shallow roasting pan, making two rows of six.
5. Pour gravy over beef rolls and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until rolls are warmed through and gravy is bubbly.
Serves 4 to 6
