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
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) cut green beans, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 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 paprika. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until potatoes are browned.
To cook potatoes for mashing, peel and cut into chunks. Place in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil; cover and cook for 15-30 minutes or until tender. Drain well and mash. One large potato will yield about 1 cup mashed potatoes.

    My family requests this at least twice a month. My 10 year old daughter is always like "YES!" when I tell her I am making it for dinner. :) Absolutely LOVE this recipe!

    Boy, this is an old recipe -- from Better Homes and Gardens in the 1950s. I've served it since then. It's a good way to get veggies down reluctant kids.
