So, there’s this cookbook on my shelf and a poll on Facebook . . .
Last week y’all voted, and Hamburger Pie won the election!
This has always been one of my favorite meals since I was young. It’s hearty, savory, and just look at all those mashed potatoes!
Now, you can use fresh ingredients if you want to. My schedule requires something just a little easier, so I opt for the ready-to-use product.
Hamburger Pie: Seven Easy Ingredients
Have I shared this with you before? Well, it’s worth another helping, dontcha think?
Seven ingredients. Six steps. One big serving of delicious!
And, look! You can even print the recipe!
The Unemployment Cookbook: Hamburger Pie
- 1 eye-watering medium onion, diced
- 1 lb ground cow
- 1 can (14 oz) French style cut green beans, drained. Because Arctic beans are just too cold.
- 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup. Chicken, now. Not peacock or other foul fowl.
- 1 soup can of cow juice (That would be milk).
- 1 box (8 servings) instant mashed potatoes. Abacadabra!
- 1 egg. Again, from a chicken. Nothing else.
- Brown the ground beef and onion together. They're in a heated relationship.
- Spoon into 2-qt baking dish. Time to get comfy!
- Cover with green beans. Layers are so stylish this time of year.
- Mix together soup and milk. Pour over green beans. Time to cool things down a little, folks!
- Prepare instant mashed potatoes per package instructions. Take out the day's frustrations and beat in an egg.
- Spread on top of casserole. Apologize to the potatoes for the egg beating and spread them nicely.
- Bake uncovered 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

I like this meal best the next day after it’s firmed up a bit. Don’t get me wrong, hot and fresh is, well, hot and fresh. But warmed up stove top or in the microwave the next day, it still retains the flavor with less liquid.
The next recipe poll will be posted in a few days, so stay hungry. I mean, stay tuned!
What’s that? Y’all want more? Well come on home, honey. You know I’ve got food on the table for you.
You can find the basic version of this and many more table-tempting recipes in The Unemployment Cookbook, available through New Inklings Press. But for a healthy serving of snark, come on back to this table.
