Green Bean Casserole

1 1/3 lbs potatoes (about 4 medium)
Thinly sliced onion
1 C frozen green bean or 1 Can
2-4 slices processed American cheese slices or shredded casserole cheese
1/2 lb ground beef
Breadcrumbs (optional)
Tomato Soup

Peel the potatoes and cut into chunks. Start them in boiling water. Meanwhile, start green beans boiling and brown ground beef. Once completed at Tomato Soup. Slice onions and spray casserole dish with non-stick coating. Place the browned ground beef/Tomato Soup mixture in the bottom of the casserole dish. Cover with half of the cheese (tearing cheese slices into chunks if using) and half of the sliced onions. Add green beans next, and repeat cheese and onion layers. Drain potatoes, add milk and butter in your preferred amounts and mash. I use about 2 Tbs butter and add sour cream instead of milk until the consistency is right. Spread mashed potatoes over top of casserole. Sprinkle with additional cheese and breadcrumbs followed by paprika if desired, otherwise just with paprika. Bake about 20-30 minutes at 400 until top of mashed potatoes is golden and cheese is well melted. May be prepared in advance, refrigerated and/or frozen, and baked later.
