Mom's Hamburger, Green Bean, Tomato Soup, Mashed Potato Hot Dish

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb hamburger, browned with the onion
  • 14 cup white onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can cut green beans
  • 2 cups instant mashed potatoes, made in advance
  • salt and pepper


  1. Mom also likes to throw in her favorite seasonings too, if desired, to the hamburger mixture as it browns. Brown hamburger with the onion.
  2. In a casserole dish, combine hamburger/onion mixture, tomato soup and green beans.
  3. Mix together .
  4. Top the whole dish with prepared mashed potatoes.
  5. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. (Note: Mom actually never used instant potatoes. She made extra real mashed potatoes for dinner a day ahead and used those planned-ahead mashed potatoes).

I have been making this recipe for years. I got it out of a circa 1980 Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. The recipe was titled Hamburger Pie. I do recommend topping the mashesd potatoes with grated cheese. Cheddar, Swiss, or Colby works well. Thanks for posting AnnMarie

This was so quick and easy to toss together. I used fresh green beans from the garden and that just made this recipe pop. So sweet, you can sure tell the difference between canned and fresh. I'm not a fan of instant potatoes but they are quick. To add some richness to them I used canned milk. I will make this again for sure.

Well, I didn't make this myself, I asked a friend of mine who made it and brought it to a dinner party we had recently. She did it exactly as the recipe said and it was delicious! Everyone liked it and wanted the recipe.
