This was so good! I wanted to hog the entire dish to myself. So did my oldest son. My youngest son licked his plate. I actually wanted to go buy the ingredients again so I could make a second batch. This is definitely a 4 person, single serving recipe for us. We didn't make anything to go with it figuring it had the four food groups, but we really needed side dishes. I will double the recipe next time for our family of soon to be 6. I added garlic powder, salt, pepper and dried minced onions to the beef. Between the potatoes and the cheddar, I sprinkled parsley. Oh, I also used Bob Evans pre-made mashed potatoes, which I heated for 2 minutes first to soften. The whole thing was heated through in 7 minutes in our 1100 watt microwave. This will be a go-to dish when the baby is born! Thank you!

For some reason this turned out quite watery, even though I drained the beef and the beans, it was tasty though, but very similar to the way in which I make Sheppards pie which we prefer. I used homemade mashed potatoes.

This was great for a super quick "I don't wanna cook" night. I found the ground beef mixture to be a bit bland though. I added some garlic powder to mine and a little minced onion. I think next time (and there will be a next time), I will try some of those fried onions mixed in the beef mixture and possibly on top to - like the traditional green bean casseroles. I made mine in the oven too..about 15 minutes at 350 to heat and melt cheese.
