Mashed potatoes Butter Ground beef Tomato sauce Minced garlic Dried oregano Salt Seasoned bread crumbs


Preheat your oven to 400°F. Then, add oil and ground beef to a frying pan and cook until brown.

Step 1


Add in the tomato sauce, garlic, oregano and salt to the beef, then mix it all together.

Step 2


Set the heat to low and let the sauce and meat mixture simmer for 30 minutes. Then, remove the pan from the heat to let it cool.

Step 3


Get out a large dish (I love square casserole dishes for this) and pour in the bread crumbs.

Step 4


Place a spoonful of mashed potatoes in your hand. Make a dent in the center, then place the meat mixture into the indent.

Step 5


Place another spoonful of mashed potatoes on top, then roll it until it forms a neat ball with an enclosed inside.

Step 6


Roll the ball in the dish of bread crumbs, then place it on a lined baking sheet. Repeat this process.

Step 7


Brush melted butter on the top of each potato ball. Then, bake for 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
