This is a personal favorite of my family. I got the original recipe from my wonderful mother in law, Sandra and have adapted and changed it up a bit as time went on. Even my picky son that doesn't like veggies will eat all of this and be back for more!

How to Make Hamburger Pie


  • 1Prepare mashed potatoes in your normal way. Either instant or real potatoes work equally well. Set aside.
  • 2Cook ground beef in a cast iron skillet (if you have one). Add salt and pepper to taste. Drain grease after the meat is cooked thoroughly.
  • 3Leaving the ground beef in the cast iron skillet, drain most of the juice off and add the corn, green beans, and ro-tel to the meat. Mix well.

    You can also use frozen vegetables. Sometimes we change the vegetables up although corn and green beans are still the family favorite.
  • 4Add mashed potatoes to the top, covering the entire meat & vegetable mixture.
  • 5Bake in oven at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the mashed potato topping begins to turn golden brown in spots.

    We like to bake this in a cast iron skillet. If you don't have one a glass baking dish works fine. You can even put it in the microwave with a glass dish, although it won't get the golden brown top on the potatoes unless you put it in the oven.
