Sproul Special

1 lb. of ground beef
1 onion
3 potatoes
1 bag of peas

Cook the ground beef in a frying pan, breaking it apart with a fork while frying so that it is, as Grandma Sproul would say, "Fried loose in the pan." Chop onion and add to beef. Cook until beef is thoroughly cooked and onion is tender. Prepare peas as to package instructions. Peel and boil potatoes until tender and mash. Serve beef, potatoes, and peas, each in their own dish. When serving, place potatoes on plate and spread to cover plate, top with beef mixture, and top with peas. Mix all of it together and dot with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. YUM!!!
