I first had this dish at my Mother-in-law’s several years ago. My husband always raved about it so I got the recipe to make at home. After a few tries, my husband officially announced that mine was better than his mother’s. Is there really any better compliment from a Southern man? Now, not sure if it’s true or he’s just being sweet but I’ll take it either way. :) This is a crowd pleaser – quick, easy, and customizable to your family’s tastes.
-1 pound ground beef
-1 can condensed tomato soup
-1 can green beans
-a couple handfuls of frozen mixed veggies (this is the part that you can customize – use your favorite veggies – peas if you don’t like green beans, etc. Or use whatever is on hand)
-mashed potatoes – I use the instant from a pouch
-salt and pepper to taste
-1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown beef, drain and place in a mixing bowl.
2. Add soup, veggies, and salt and pepper to the beef and mix well. Pour into a lightly greased 1.5 to 2 quart casserole. Prepare potatoes as per directions on pouch and spread on top of beef mixture.
3. Cook at 350 for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Add cheese; return to oven until cheese is melted.
Here it is in the casserole dish – so pretty!
All served up and ready to devour:
