It's Official

For years each time I have eaten Hamburger Stroganoff or Potato Casserole I say, "Mmmm, this is so good. I can't decide if this is my favorite or (insert the other here.)"

Well the question has been answered. The last time I made Stroganoff I was a little disappointed. Last night, Potato Casserole and it was delicious.
And in honor of a decision I give you the recipe for Potato Casserole which is more commonly known as Shepherd's Pie, but for some reason I never call it Shepherd's Pie.

Brown 1lb Hamburger with some onions (fresh or dried) add some salt and put in the bottom of vintage casserole dish.
Open and strain a can of french cut green beans. Put beans in vintage casserole dish to form the second layer.
Open a can of tomato juice and pour it all over the the beans.
Make enough mashed potatoes (real or instant) (don't forget the salt) to make a third layer in the vintage casserole dish - the thickness of the layer depends on how much you like potatoes. As you spread the potatoes make sure they meet the edges of the dish.
Grate enough cheese to cover the potatoes, sprinkle it on top.
Add an optional sprinkle of paprika.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until hot throughout.
There is a rule: you are not allowed to skim the baked cheese off the top, if you want more cheese you must eat the corresponding potatoes, beans and meat. Trust me this rule is necessary.
