Comfort Casserole Recipe:


  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey

1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  • Next, add the sliced green beans on top of the meat.
  • Spoon the mashed potatoes over the green beans, creating a smooth layer.
  • Spread sour cream evenly over the mashed potatoes.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese on top, covering the entire surface.

4. Bake:

5. Garnish and Serve:

  • If desired, sprinkle chopped green onions over the casserole for a burst of freshness.
  • Allow the casserole to cool for a few minutes before serving.
