Instructions

For the potatoes:

  • Peel & dice potatoes. Place in a pot of cold, salted water and place on the stovetop on high heat. Bring potatoes to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until tender. When potatoes are done, drain well, and mash with butter, milk, salt & pepper until smooth.

For the Filling:

  • Heat oil in a saute pan over medium heat. When oil becomes hot, add onion and saute until onions become clear. Add ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned. Drain excess grease, add green beans and cook an additional minute or two. Stir in tomato sauce and reduce heat to a slight simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Spread beef mixture evenly in the bottom of a glass baking dish or casserole dish (or divide evenly between individual ramekin dishes). Top with mashed potatoes and smooth evenly over beef mixture. Bake at 350-degrees for about 20 minutes. Top with cheese and bake another 5-10 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble up.
