This recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens Golden Treasury of Cooking, which covers favorite recipes from the 1930's-1970's. The recipe was a favorite family while my four kids were growing up. The cookbook states that "Hamburger Pie is the most popular recipe Better Homes and Gardens magazine has ever published." It's quick, easy & filling. Give it a try!
1 pound ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 t. salt
1 16-ounce can cut green beans, drained
1 10 3/4-ounce can condensed tomato soup
5 medium potatoes, cooked*
1/2 c. warm milk
1 beaten egg
1/2 c. shredded cheese
In a large skillet, cook the meat & onion until meat is lightly browned & onion is tender. (I drain it at this point). Add salt & pepper. Stir in drained green beans & soup. Pour into a greased 1 1/2 qt. casserole.
Mash potatoes while hot; add milk & egg. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Spoon into mounds over casserole. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
*Or, prepare 4 servings packaged instant mashed potatoes according to packaged directions, except reserve the milk. Add egg & season to taste with salt & pepper. Add enough reserved milk so potatoes are stiff enough to hold shape.
