This is a favorite Baird family supper dish and, happily, an undemanding one.
Brown pork sausage and beef; drain excess fat. Add mashed potatoes, onion, bread, and seasonings. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally to keep from burning; taste and adjust seasoning if desired. Bake, covered, for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees F. This can also be used as a turkey stuffing.
