Meat and Potato Pie

Colorful mixed vegetables jazz up a homey supper that's
an updated version of a classic shepherd’s pie.

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 cup milk
2 cups mashed potato flakes

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, combine ground beef,
bread crumbs, ketchup and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt; mix well.
Press mixture in bottom and up sides of ungreased 9-inch pie
pan. Bake at 375°F. for 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, combine frozen mixed vegetables,
water, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder and onion powder;
