They all enjoyed it and so did I once I joined the family and was served it and then learned to make it myself. Dad always called it Boston Bitch! but when I started making it for our family we just called it Boston B. It wasn't until they were adults that the kids finally learned what it's original name was. Most of them didn't like it but I kept making it hoping they'd develop a taste for it.
Here's how it's made. Try it - you'll like it...maybe.
1. Brown a pound or so of ground beef, chopped onion, salt and pepper in a skillet until the meat is brown and crumbly.
2. Put it in a large bowl and add leftover mashed potatoes (or 4-5 freshly cooked and mashed potatoes) and a can of condensed tomato soup. Mix well.
3. Put mixture in a casserole dish and heat in 350 oven until heated through.
4. Serve with fresh vegetables. I always put butter on the top of my serving. It was especially good with home made onion/mustard pickles.
I haven't had it in years - must make some soon.
