- * I wrote this w/ these amounts, but it can easily be scaled up or down depending on your needs. I have made it w/ as little as a beef pattie and some leftover potatoes. shopping list
- -2 Lb ground meat...beef, lamb, Poultry shopping list
- -1 Lb mashed potatoes shopping list
- -oil of choice to thinly coat pan shopping list
- -1 C Fine dice Mirepoix (celery, onion, carrot) shopping list

- so I cannot give amounts. shopping list
- -hot pepper /Flakes to taste, May Omit shopping list

- MAKE LIFE AND COOKING EASY... I buy pre- packaged Mirepoix.. a 1 C package is $2.00. No separate purchases, No work for me. A convenience yes, but also a $ & time saver. For me to buy an onion, a bag of carrots, and celery costs approx. $3-5. The salad bar isn't always a reliable, cheap choice. Then I still have to process it. I cook for one. But I freeze and do share w/ friends and Family. shopping list
- As for the broth/flour mix... use your judgement, more of each will make more gravy..see what you like. shopping list
