Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In deep frying pan, sauté ground beef and onion until done. Drain grease.
  2. Add rest of ingredients except last 4 (mashed potatoes, parmesan cheese, egg and paprika.).
  3. *Best to fold in the green beans lastly, too, so they don't get all broken up.
  4. Mix well, and bring to a boil.
  5. Cook and fold/stir for 2-3 minutes.(Be careful not to wreck the green beans.).
  6. Pour into lightly greased baking dish, shallow or deep, it doesn't really matter so long as it all fits.
  7. Stir beaten egg and parmesan cheese into prepared mashed potatoes. *Make sure potatoes are cool enough, though, so when you mix in the egg you don't end up with scrambled egg pieces, and stir in quickly.
  8. Top pie/casserole with mashed potato concoction.
  9. You can spread it on, or do dollops, or even pipe it on with a pastry bag and tip to make it pretty.
  10. Sprinkle tops of potatoes with a little paprika for color.
  11. Bake, uncovered, in 350 oven for for about 40 minutes until bubbly and potatoes are just lightly browned on the tops.
