You cook like me then.  When it starts to taste great, I know its ready.  And kudos to you for actually remembering how to make it.  I have made some of the best meals of my life, only to fail at repeating them.  Le sigh.

I have one that is super easy and affordable! 

My family calls it “Purvis Pie” (hehe!)

  • 1 lb hamburger (although I use ground turkey)
  • 1 family size can of Campbell’s Tomato Soup (don’t use any other brand!)
  • 1 can of cut green beans
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • 9×13 casserole dish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown hamburger (or turkey) and add tomato soup and green beans. Heat until slight boil, stirring occassionally. 
Then pour beef mixture into casserole dish and set aside. 
Make mashed potatoes (using the guidelines of the 4-6 servings with an instant box or you can make your own mashed potatoes!).
Smear potatoes on top of beef mixture.
Place slices of cheddar cheese on top of potatoes until the entire dish is covered. 
Put into oven for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy!
