Easy Friday Night Supper

1 cup lentils
2 cups water
3 potatoes
1 lb. hamburger
1 chopped onion
1 can tomato soup
cheese
salt
pepper

Rinse lentils, cook in water for 30 minutes (covered pot)
Bake potatoes in microwave (or stove), cube (one inch or so)
Cook hamburger and onion, drain fat.
Stir it all together in a microwave casserole dish, add salt & pepper to taste, and a handfull of shredded cheese if desired. My kids love this. It’s easily altered and adapted, I like to use Mrs. Dash instead of salt and pepper, and smoked paprika if I have it.

  1. This is a decent enough basis for a wholesome, frugal meal – if not in the category to serve company. The only catch is, it is very bland. I am working on the seasonings and then will enjoy it. Have added some fresh, chopped parsley and am thinking of which direction to take it, seasoning-wise – maybe Middle Eastern? I don’t eat cheese – otherwise, that could help, as it helps many things. Part of the blandness could come from the fact that I used a “healthy choice” tomato soup with reduced sodium.

  2. We just came across this tonight and decided to make it. It is REALLY soupy, and I’m curious if this is the intent? I read it as a casserole, and am wondering if I missed a step. Or if it should be baked for a bit to cook out a bit of the water? Thanks!

    (We aren’t eating it just yet, we are trying out a new cook & freeze method where we prep it one day and eat it later.)

  3. Jenn- how did you make it? It did not come out soupy for me – did you drain the lentils? What kind of soup did you use – condensed? That is what I used – not reconstituted.

    Basically this is lentils, potatoes, ground hamburger, chopped onion with a can of condensed tomato soup – nothing in it really to make it soupy.

    how did the cook and free method work for you? That sounds like a real timesaver !
