1960's Craptastically Good and Ridiculously Easy-to-Make Beef Casserole

Before I had even joined one of my message boards, there had been a recipe collection and distribution. One of the women was gracious enough to send me the document, and I sat for hours, happy as a clam, going through them.

This one, submitted by a woman named Pat, totally caught my eye and I couldn't wait to make it. Besides, you read the name - just the title radiates with goodness!

The meal absolutely lived up to its name, and I was kind of bummed that my husband took the leftovers. Hee hee! This will for sure be a repeat here.

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 1 can Campbell’s tomato soup (undiluted)
  • 1 can green beans (drained) (I used about a cup or so of frozen mixed veggies)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the beef and onion. Drain. Add the tomato soup and the green beans and stir. Transfer to a three quart baking dish. Top with the mashed potatoes and cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly (30 minutes).


  1. So the name caught my eye too. Funny how I'm seeing more and more casseroles making a comeback - are we all looking for some yummy home cooking?

  2. What a fun old dish it has been years since I have had this worth a try. Love the post.
