READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by SharleneW

To make this quick meal even quicker, use instant mashed potatoes. You can make it "pretty" by squeezing potato mixture through pasty bag with a large star tip.

This has been a family favorite for years. It's so quick and easy to make. We've also tried substituting different vegetables and have tried cream of mushroom soup in place of the tomato. We always end up liking the original the best. I have to make enough Hamburger Pie the first night for leftovers for my youngest son. Otherwise, I end up making it 2 nights in a row!
