I got home from work a little late today and Heather wasn’t feeling well.  We had a pound of hamburger out for dinner with no idea what to fix (we were out of Hamburger helper).  I did a quick search on the Google and found this:

Hamburger Casserole with Potatoes

•1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
•1/2 cup milk
•1 pound ground round
•1 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon pepper
•2 tablespoons minced onion (1/2 small onion)
•1 large egg
•prepared mashed potatoes, about 2 to 4 cups (we used a package of Betty Crocker garlic mashed potatoes)
•3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
•paprika, optional


Soak bread crumbs in milk. Mix ground beef, salt, pepper, onion, bread crumb-milk mixture, and egg. Spread in a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Top with mashed potatoes; sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven for 10 minutes longer, or until cheese is melted and potatoes are thoroughly heated. If desired, sprinkle hamburger casserole with paprika.
Hamburger casserole serves 4.

It was quick and darn tasty.  Heather and I already started thinking how we can modify it like adding chopped fresh green peppers or some mushrooms.
