Hamburger-Green Bean Casserole

This is a favorite casserole of Hunky Hubby and my two kids.  Even after growing up and moving out, they come home and want this yummy dinner.


2 Tbls   Olive Oil
1           Small Onion, diced
2           Cloves garlic, finely diced
1 lb.      Hamburger, browned and drained
                                         6       Russet Potatoes, sliced thinly
                                        1 can     Cream of Mushroom Soup
                                        1 can     Green Beans
                                        Salt and Pepper to taste.

In a cast iron frying pan, add the olive oil.  Over medium heat, add the onion and sauté until tender.  Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.  Add the hamburger, breaking it into small pieces as it browns.  Once no pink is showing in the meat, remove from heat and drain the fat. 

Spray a casserole dish with Pam.  Add meat mixture to the bottom of the pan.

Clean potatoes well.  Leaving the skins on, slice thinly and layer on top of the meat mixture. 

In a small mixing bowl, add the cream of mushroom soup.  Open the can of green beans and drain, reserving 1/2 the liquid.  Add the liquid to the soup and mix well.

Spread the green beans on top of the potatoes.  Pour the soup mixture over the top of the casserole.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Cover with lid or tinfoil.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.  Mix the ingredients well before serving.
