This is all that is left of our Saturday dinner … and I’m suprised there even was anything left! Everyone had seconds … some had thirds (won’t mention any names!) … I had this casserole at my friend’s house for lunch the other day – and knew immediately my family would love it. Meat, potatoes, vegetables … it’s all there.
This casserole is something like Shepherd’s Pie, I think. I’m calling it
THE VERY EASY CASSEROLE
1 1/2 – 2 lbs ground beef or chuck, cooked & drained
2 cans tomato soup
2 cans green beans, drained (you could use other veggies – maybe corn? not sure?)
a “mess” of mashed potatoes (I think I used 6 medium potatoes & fixed them like I normally do – mashed withe a little milk, sour cream, butter, and salt)
Shredded cheddar, to your families’ liking (1-2 cups?)
In a 9×13 casserole, put down the cooked meat, top with tomato soup, then layer green beans, cover with mashed potatoes and top with cheese.
My ingredients were warm, so I only baked my casserole for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees to melt the cheese.
YOU CAN FREEZE THIS CASSEROLE and bake it later. Guessing at 350 for about 30-45 minutes (???)
