Mashed Potato Goop

2 lbs ground beef
1 red onion, thinly sliced and diced (yellow onion can be substituted)
2 (14 3/4 ounce) cans creamed corn
4 lbs potatoes, and cut into cubes (peeled if desired)
splash milk (amount depends on consistency of potatoes)
4 tablespoons butter (half stick) or margarine
1Finely slice and dice onion.
2Cut (and peel if desired) potatoes.
3Add potatoes to boiling pot of water. let boil for 12-15 minutes.
4While potatoes are cooking add onion to large frying pan and crumble ground beef into pan.brown the meat/onion combination on medium to medium/low heat. ( DO NOT drain grease from meat) then, once meat is browned, lower heat to low and stir in the creamed corn .
5Once potatoes are done, drain them and return to pot. add splash of milk and half stick of butter and blend with mixer till smooth.( should not be soupy but should not be too thick as to not be spreadable)
6Now place the ground beef/creamed corn/onion mixture into a 9 by 13 inch pan then spread mashed over top of mixture (like icing a cake) with a spatula.
7Bake in oven at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes (peaks of the mashed potatoes will lightly brown and beef/corn mixture will bubble up around edges of pan).
