 Snowcapped Casserole
This comforting casserole goes over well at church fellowships and family gatherings. I often double the recipe.—Frances Johnson, Bear Creek, North Carolina
4 ServingsPrep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) cut green beans, drained

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2-1/2 cups hot mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Paprika


  • In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat
  • is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the beans, tomato sauce, salt and
  • pepper.
  • Transfer to a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Top with eight
  • mounds of mashed potatoes. Drizzle with butter; sprinkle with
