One Dish Hamburger Meal with Potatoes and Green Beans

One dish hamburger meal.

I had never heard of this one dish hamburger meal until I married into the Slabach family. It was one of Mom’s recipes and the one that her son Paul loved the most. I still think of it as Paul’s favorite dish.

I hadn’t made it in years and had to call my sister-in-law Rhoda to ask her how mom did it. She gave me the detail-by-detail method, and I fixed it that evening to perfection. Dave said it tasted just like Mom’s.

This dish is so versatile. You can increase it for a large crowd or use smaller amounts of the ingredients if you’re cooking for a few. Another thing that’s nice about this dish is that the ingredients are items you will (probably) already have on hand in your kitchen.

Hamburger, potatoes, green beans, and cream of mushroom soup. You can add some onion, salt and pepper, or garlic for flavor if you’d like. Mom just used salt and pepper, but you can add other spices. I like to add garlic and some red pepper flakes, but I just don’t tell anyone. ­čÖé

One thing I can tell you is this: it tastes a whole lot better than the photo can make it look.

  1. Ok ive not tried this, but its my kind of cooking and it sounds great in my mind. I think you could also use cream of chicken or any gravy. Also i love mushrooms so the need to be added lol

  2. It’s certainly not a do-or-die recipe! You can fix it up any way you like. I agree that adding mushrooms would be great; but I had a few kids who didn’t even want mushrooms in the soup, let alone adding extra! ­čÖé

  3. 5 stars
    My family has made this dish for generations, and our name for it is Guf. One of my favorites and I’m happy to see other people making this dish! I certainly don’t think we invented it but I haven’t seen many people post its ingredients online.

  4. That’s interesting.:-) I never heard of it until I married into the Slabach family and became thoroughly indoctrinated! It’s a great, easy, one-dish recipe.
