Cheap Main Dish Meal,Green Bean, Hambuger and Mashed Potato Casserole.Kids Love It.

Green Bean and Potato Mashed Casserole

My family loves this casserole. Including two granddaughters that are always hard to please. It's easy, fast and cheap recipe. I have made this casserole from the time my kids were little. You can make it a day ahead and just add the potatoes to the top when you’re getting ready to cook it. If you want more potatoes on the top you can add more.

French cut, whole or garden green beans can be used. I prefer whole green beans. If you use garden green beans make sure they are cooked first.

How To Make Mashed Potatoes

Clean potatoes and peel cut into junks. Add to a 2 qt. saucepan half full of water. Bring to a boil. Potatoes are done when fork inserts into potatoes easily. Drain and add milk and butter. Mash them with a potato masher or use a mixer. You can add more milk if you need it. You can also add more butter or no butter at all. I like creamer mashed potatoes but some like the chunkier mashed potatoes. You can make either one to the top of this casserole.

Ingredients:

1 lb. of hamburger

3-4 large potatoes cooked and mashed

1 can of green beans, french cut or regular

1 can tomato soup

1/2 cup milk

3 tablespoons of butter

salt and pepper

vegetable spray

Preparation:

First get your potatoes going, peeled, cut, cooked and mashed. When mashing add the milk, butter and salt/pepper to taste.

Fry hamburger with salt and pepper to taste and drain.

Mix together hamburger, tomato soup and green beans. Place in a large vegetable sprayed casserole dish. Top with mashed potatoes. I put the potatoes on top with a large spoon four scoops so that the casserole can bubble up between the potatoes.

Bake in a 400° oven until casserole is heated completely through and bubbling and potatoes are browned on top.

I have also added an egg to my mashed potatoes makes them a crisper on the top.

Serves 4-6

Jackie Lynnley, My husband doesn't like peas in anything. Actually it's also good with corn. Thanks for stopping by.

I use to make a dish just like that when my kids were little but we used peas instead of green beans. It was very good; thanks for reminding me and I will try it with the beans.

Paul Kuehn, My husband also loves casseroles and coming from a family of 11 they ate a lot of them. It also seems to be a northern thing. I never had a casserole until I moved up here. Thanks so much for stopping and for the share, facebook pin and tweeting.

moonlake,

I love casseroles and since living in Thailand I haven't had one in a long time. I'm lazy when it comes to cooking, and my wife who is a Thai doesn't know how to make one. Now with your great recipe, I can work with her in making a dish I really like. Voted up as very useful. Sharing with followers and on Facebook. Also Pinning and Tweeting.

Update: I made it the night before last, and both Andy and I love it! My boyfriend commented that the tomato soup gave it a very interesting flavor, distinguishing it from shepherd's pie, another of our favorites. It will be a permanent item in my virtual cookbook! Thanks again.

Hi moonlake,

Thanks for giving us this good sounding recipe. I like the idea of having the potatoes be a little crispy on top and will definitely add the egg like you do when I try this recipe. Casseroles are good to have when serving a crowd because they stay warm and people can help themselves to as much or as little as they wish to eat. They are often a good value also with regard to expense. Voted up and will share.

Cardisa, Yes, I guess it would be something like Shepherd's pie. I think the vegetables could be changed and maybe use corn instead of green beans. Thanks so much for stopping by.
