Hamburger Pie

This one is for my boys they all love it and it's so simple they each know how to make it. They prefer to just open the cans and let me do the rest. There are lots of different versions of this dish. My step-mom makes hers with cream of mushroom soup,corn,and tater tots. But this one we like the best.


1 pound of hamburger
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 cans of tomato soup
4 cans green beans
6 cups mashed potatoes
2 eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dillweed

Brown hamburger and garlic in frying pan;drain off excess grease. Mix together the hamburger, green beans and tomato soup and put in 9x13 baking dish. In a bowl mix together mashed potatoes, eggs, Parmesan cheese and dillweed. Spread on top of hamburger mixture. Score with fork. Place in oven at 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbling. feeds at least 6 people. I don't measure when I cook so I guessed on the mashed potatoes:)

Grilled BST w/cheese

I don't like lettuce. I love spinach. So instead of lettuce we use spinach. Tonight I decided to make bacon, spinach and tomato sandwiches for supper.

Yesterday I picked up some Italian bread at the farmers market. It was round and thin and too big for the toaster. So I thought I would grill it.

Then I decided to add a little grated cheese.

It could easily become my favorite sandwich this year.

I might try adding a little turkey from the deli next time. The tomatoes get pretty juicy so don't let it sit for long.

All you need is bacon,fresh spinach,tomatoes,your favorite bread,any kind of cheese and butter if your grilling it. HB toasted his and didn't have cheese.
