I remember this from my mother making it. We use 1 can of mushroom soup and 1 can of tomato soup mixed together. The mushroom soup really adds flavor. I couldn't remember how to make it until I found this recipe and it came back to me. Thank you!!

My substitutions probably caused the lower rating. I used Healthy Choice tomato soup, corn instead of green beans, and mashed redskins with sour cream due to availability in my pantry.

My mom used to make this the only difference was that she always layered it. The hamburger/tomato mixture went at the bottom of a large bowl, next layer was green beans, then mashed potatoes, topped with lots of cheese! Very good

Very good. I did have to substitute tomatoe sauce for the tomatoe soup, and I only used one can of sauce. I also used french style green beans, and added more seasoning- garlic and pepper.Using instant potatoes also made it a lot quicker. I will put mushrooms in it next time. Overall, a very easy to make meal. I'll probally play around with this recipe and see what else I can come up with. Again, VERY GOOD !!!!

Really good basic meal. Super easy to put together. I use instant potatoes (4-6 serving size) and add 2 tsp (or more) of basil and some minced onion & garlic. I only cook it until the cheese melts.

My mom used to make this dish, years ago; it was from the old red&white checkered BH&G cookbook. I used the 1lb ground beef, 1/2 an onion, 1 can low-sodium tomato soup, & subbed the green beans with corn. I added 1/2c milk and 1 egg to the mashed potatoes, covered the meat with them, & used 1/2c cheddar cheese to top. Thanks for reminding me of this good old comfort food recipe, Corrie!

Very, very good! The whole family loved it. I added a 4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms and cut the onion down by half. I also added garlic. I took another reviewer's suggestion and used instant mashed potatoes to reduce the prep time. As always, I used chicken broth instead of water when making the instant taters. We'll be having this again real soon!
