The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement ~ Creamy Beef & Sweet Potato Casserole

Watch out, this healthy dish is packing with all the flavor of any of your favorite comfort foods.  It's creamy, it has a carb (a healthy one), meat, and some yummy veggies.  And of course, cheese.

Everyone loved it.  My kids only  like sweet potatoes a few different ways, and this is one of them.  Enjoy!

1-Pd lean ground beef
1-Tbl olive oil
1-Can nonfat cream of mushroom soup
1-Can nonfat cream of celery soup
1/2-Cup nonfat or 1% milk
1-Can Corn
1- Onion, diced
3-Lg sweet potatoes, sliced into thin pieces
1-Cup low fat cheddar cheese mix, mozz cheese mix, or any cheese you desire

heat oven to 375. Brown ground beef and onion in the olive oil in large pan.  Once completely cooked, add all ingredients except potatoes and cheese.  Mix well and let simmer.  Meanwhile, spray bottom of 16" baking pan w/ nonstick cooking spray. Cover bottom of baking pan w/potatoes.  Pour meat mixture over potatoes.  Cook, uncovered, for thirty minutes.  Mix the mixture up, cover with foil, cook for 20 more minutes, or until potatoes are cooked through.  Add cheese to top, cook for a few more minutes, or until cheese is melted.  Serve w/salad or whatever you desire.  Happy Eating Friends! ~ Trina
