Recipe By Request – The Family Casserole

The Family Casserole recipe has been requested and of course I’m happy to oblige. It’s not a secret (at least I don’t think it is…) πŸ˜‰

Apparently this is something that my mother-in-law made one day when my husband was young after digging through a half-empty pantry. I don’t think she imagined her grandkids would be eating it. But her children loved it and my husband still loves it.

“It” is just a ground beef, potato, and green bean casserole (though I don’t think it technically meets the definition of ‘casserole.

‘) “It” hasn’t even had a name except for “the casserole” until I started Menu Plan Monday and needed to call it something. “It” is one of the easiest things to make. Really. πŸ™‚

***

NEED:

1 lb. ground beef

approx. 2 c. diced potatoes

1 can green beans (not drained)

Lawry’s seasoned salt, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper

***

PREPARE:

1.) Brown the ground beef with some seasoned salt, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper. You know your family’s taste so have at it how you will. πŸ™‚ Drain well.

2.) In the skillet, mix the beef, the potatoes, and the entire can of green beans and liquid. Add a dash or two of seasoned salt and pepper, cover with a lid, and cook on medium-high until the potatoes are almost cooked through. Stir occasionally.
3.) When the potatoes are almost done, finish cooking without the lid so the rest of the liquid (if any) will evaporate. Once the potatoes are cooked through, serve hot with some bread, cornbread, or saltine crackers.

(If you are like my husband, add more seasoned salt here.) πŸ˜‰

Enjoy!

Yay! Thank you SO much! This sounds like something my hubby would love too. Thanks for posting it for me.

One last question… I know this is sort of a make-it-up-as-you-go recipe, but do you have a rough guess for how long the potatoes will cook for? I’m a new-ish cook… so I really have no idea whether this step would take 20 minutes or an hour.

Thanks!!
Kel

It doesn’t take very long at all. It will take longer if you don’t keep it covered for a bit, but otherwise I would say cook time is about twenty minutes. πŸ™‚

This sounds like something my mother-in-law would have thrown together to feed her sons (my husband and his always-hungry brothers)! LOL πŸ™‚ He would love it too, he’s a meat and potatoes guy. Thanks for sharing!

Hmm… this definitely sounds like a casserole my hubby would inhale. If it has meat and potatoes in it, it’ll be a winner with him. And the ease of it all is very appealing. I’ll try it tonight on the kids.

Is that a 15 oz. can of beans or the big can?
