|1 pounds||Ground beef|
|1 pack||(16 oz.) frozen vegetables for stew, divided|
|1 can||(10 1/4OZ.) beef gravy|
|2 cups||Mashed potatoes (prepared with a small amount of milk)|
|16||Whole black peppercorns|
In a skillet, brown beef; drain. Remove 24 peas and one carrot chunk from the stew vegetables; set aside. Add the 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 potatoes for each head and 3 tablespoons for each body. Bake, uncovered, at 350F for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, with a sharp knife, cut the reserved carrot into eight strips. Insert one strip into each snowman for a nose.
Place three reserved peas on each for buttons. Add peppercorns for eyes.
Drizzle ketchup between head and body to form a scarf. Yield: 6 - 8 servings. Editor's Note: If serving small children, remove the peppercorns.
