Might be eating this every night
Home Cooking 2005 Recipe Annual Copyright 2005
1 pound ground beef
½ cup chopped onion
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 (10 ¾-ounce) can tomato soup I used the lower-sodium version
1 (15-ounce) can cut green beans, drained
1 1/3 cups instant potato flakes
1 egg beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 1 ½-quart casserole dish.
Brown ground beef with onion; drain. Season with salt and pepper; stir in tomato soup and green beans. Place in prepared dish.
Prepare instant potatoes as package directs, omitting milk and adding egg. Spoon potato mounds over casserole. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
Serves 4 to 6. (6 would be a stretch)
I might have to start making this recipe quite often. Not that it was that good (it was good, not spectacular), but because it's a bargain and everyday I get hit with another bill related to Daniel's birth. The hospital bills are my favorite because they're for large amounts of money and they send you absolutely zero information besides the balance. I guess there aren't enough trees in the forest for them to itemize everything.
This wasn't bad. My son really likes canned green beans and he scarfed this down. My husband will sometimes pass on vegetables unless they're mixed right into the main course so this worked out well for him too. I just needed to pick up the soup and green beans to make this and it didn't take much time to make so it gets plenty of extra points for being cheap and easy.
Question of the Day: Do you like canned vegetables? I was raised on them so I actually like most of them - mushrooms, corn, green beans, peas, carrots, beets and even potatoes. One canned vegetable I don't care for is asparagus.
