Lightly grease a casserole dish.
Mash boiled potatoes or make 6 cups of instant potatoes.
Drain the beans.

Step 2

Mix the hamburger, tomato soup, green beans and seasonings in the casserole dish. Spread the mashed potatoes over the bean mixture and then cover with shredded cheese.

Step 3

Bake at 325 degrees for about 35 minutes until heated through.

Use regular shred cheese, not finely shredded.
You can add more mashed potatoes if you wish, just add a few more minutes of baking time.
Don't make the mashed potatoes too dry or they won't spread easily over the bean mixture.
