Red Hamburger Pie

from Gayleen

1 lb hamburger
Minced onions
1/2 tsp salt
Dash pepper
Green beans or corn
1 can tomato soup
Shredded cheese
Mashed Potatoes (made however you'd like)

Cook hamburger and minced onions. Drain grease. Add salt and pepper. Add beans (or corn) and tomato soup. Turn to low and let sit while you finish preparing the potatoes.

For best flavor: Make homemade mashed potatoes with real Idaho russet potatoes, using a mixer, whipped up with butter, milk, and salt.

For a quicker way:
Potato Topping:
2 cups water
3/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp margarine

Boil and remove from heat.
Add 3/4 cup milk and 2 cups instant potatoes.
Add beaten egg just before you put over hamburger mixture.

Put hamburger mixture into 9x13-inch pan. Top hamburger mixture with potatoes and top with shredded cheese. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I've done this both ways and found if you have the time it is TOTALLY worth it to make real homemade mashed potatoes.

I took a picture of it after we'd eaten some. It tastes much better than it looks. I never have complaints about this dish.
