Mashed Potato Bake

I first made this in high school for an easy meal. The great thing about it is that you can prepare the parts of it before you need it and refrigerate until you're ready to assemble your casserole (or whatever you want to call this).

8-10 servings of instant (or real) mashed potatoes, prepared
1 lb ground beef or ground turkey, browned
cheese (whatever kind you like in whatever amount you like)
I prepare this in a 9x13 baking dish. First, spray the dish with cooking spray to ease cleaning.
Layer the beef or turkey on the bottom. Sometimes I do a layer of bread crumbs first if I feel "fancy." (ha ha)
Next, using a rubber spatula, spread a layer of mashed potatoes on top of the ground meat. Use only about a half of your potatoes.
Add your layer of cheese. I usually use a few slices, and add some grated cheese and whatever I have around that I want to use up. The blocks of Velveeta work well for this.
Finally, cover the cheese with another layer of potatoes.

Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes and enjoy.

The kids always eat this and it is very easy to make.
