We really enjoyed this. True comfort food. I buy my ground beef in bulk and cook it up with onion and freeze in 1 lb. packages. I used one of these and had dinner on the table in 30 mins. I misread the recipe and cooked the beans with the meat for 10 mins. Used 1 package of Yukon Gold instant potatoes on top, with the cheese. I didn't even cook in the oven, just simmered covered while I cooked rolls. Leftovers were great reheated the next day.

This was good! I am glad I tried it, it has all the fixings of comfort food. I had less potatoes than the recipe called for but it turned out great anyway. Yum, I think I will be making this one again!

Had some sweet and sour meatballs (and lots of sauce) and garlic cheddar mashed potatoes leftover from last night so I threw it all together with the beans and it was great. Thanks for the idea!

This would be good without the mashed potatoes. I didn't have Worcestershire so used soy sauce instead. Easy to put together and good with a salad and your favorite bread. Thanks for posting. Toni in Colorado

This is an outstanding recipe that I have made many times. Easy to make, very yummy. Utilizes ingredients that I usually have in the house. Leftovers are good too.

This is a good combination, and easy to put together if you have mashed potatoes on hand. I used some mashed cauliflower I had in the freezer- worked just as well. I cut the recipe down to serve two, but left the tomato sauce and worcestershire in the same amounts.

I loved this...very easy. I put the cheese on only the last 5 minutes and put under the broiler!

I grew up with a version of this and my mom called it "shipwreck." She sliced the potatoes instead of mashing them and she poured the tomato soup on top, while leaving the hamburger plain. Don't tell her this, but I like your version MUCH better!

This was a very tasty and hearty meal! It's similar to a shepherd's pie recipe I use. Next time, I might add some mixed veggies to the beef and possibly use an extra can of baked beans. I also like the idea of garlic. Thanks Fluffy!
