This is something I grew up on and rely on as comfort food now that I'm older. I love this meal during the fall and winter months as it's a stick to your ribs type of meal....

Put this hearty casserole in your recipe box because, after one bite, it will become a new family favorite. It's similar to a shepherd's pie... but so much more. The meat is full of flavor from the onion soup mix and gets sandwiched between cheesy potatoes. Tomato soup and French fried onions mixed in add tons more flavor. We did add the optional sour cream, butter, and bacon to the potatoes - boy did it amp up the potatoes. An easy casserole dinner recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Hearty Hamburger Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet brown ground beef. About 1/2 way through cooking the beef add in 1/2 a package of onion soup mix, and let it cook the rest of the way with the beef. Taste this before adding any additional salt, as the onion soup mix can be quite salty on its own!
  2. Drain the beef completely and pat it dry to soak up any additional grease left behind.
  3. While the beef is cooking, prepare your potatoes per package directions.
  4. I usually add in sour cream, butter, and chopped bacon to the potatoes for extra flavor.
  5. In a deep oven-safe dish or a 9x13 baking dish spread a layer of potatoes in the bottom.
  6. Layer the remaining ingredients as follows: beef mixture, green beans, tomato soup, and French's cheddar onions if you're using them.
  7. Finally, top with the last part of the mashed potatoes.
  8. Place casserole in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until heated through and the potatoes begin to get a golden color.
  9. At the last 5 minutes, sprinkle cheese over top of the dish. Cook until melted completely. This is an all-in-one dish and can be served with a light salad on the side.
