1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 (15.5-oz.) can sloppy Joe sandwich sauce

3. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, bring water and garlic salt to a boil. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in potato flakes until well blended. Add sour cream and egg; mix well.
4. Spoon beef mixture into ungreased shallow 2-quart casserole. Spoon potato mixture in circle around edges of casserole. Sprinkle potatoes with cheese.
5. Bake at 325°F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are set. If desired, sprinkle potatoes with chopped fresh parsley.
