Recipe: Jacob's Coat Casserole

This has also been called shepherds pie. I love the colors, and its easy. Another family pleaser. Ground beef layered with mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes.

Jacob's Coat Casserole Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 (15 ounce) can green beans, drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can carrots, drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can peas

  • pound processed cheese food, sliced

  • 4 cups prepared instant mashed potatoes

How to Make Jacob's Coat Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, saute the beef and onion for 5 to 10 minutes, or until meat is browned. Drain excess fat and place this mixture in the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.

  3. Layer the green beans, carrots, corn and peas over the beef mixture. Place the cheese over the vegetables.

  4. Prepare the potatoes according to package directions, but add some extra milk or water to make it a little runny. Cover the entire casserole with the potatoes.

  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour, or until potatoes get slightly crusty and the sides of the dish are bubbly.

Jacob's Coat Casserole Reviews

  • My husband and I LOVED this. I make this often and its very easy to reheat. I omitted the cheese and its just like the old fashioned shepherds pie my grandmother used to make.

  • This was a good basic recipe, although I omitted canned green beans and carrots. Instead, I added one chopped green pepper and sauteed with the ground beef and onion, and also used creamed corn instead of whole kernel corn. I also subtituted 1 cup grated cheddar cheese for the 1/2 lb. processed cheese and prepared 2 cups of instant mashed potatoes instead of 4. Was very quick and easy and my husband really liked it. Thanks, Cindy

  • My meat and potatoes man LOVED this (as did my roommate and daughter)...but me? Well - it was okay but I think Id rather do the tater tot hotdish thing (also meat & potatoes dish) than this. Loved the ease of the recipe and its not difficult and I guess when your short on time, ingrediants, and just want a down-home meal this would fit the bill but I think Id otherwise pass. I would say make this if you love this sort of thing...

  • Wow Was that ever good I used 16oz of frozen mixed veggies and grated cheddar cheese (saving a handful to put on the potatoes for visual appeal) and it came out great This is a great alternative for those who are not huge fans of the condensed soup version. I added some spices for extra flavor and it was fantastic Thanks


  • Im not quite sure why its called "Jacobs Coat"--if its referring to the coat of many colors in the Bible, it was Joseph who owned this coat. Anyway, this was very good. I used half instant and half regular mashed potatoes, and I added some mushrooms and green peppers to give it a nice flavor. Its very filling and reheats nicely. God Bless

  • It was pretty dern good

  • Very good I only used green beans and corn, as I was out of carrots and peas, and I used frozen vegetables, rather than canned. I also cut way back on the amount of vegetables. I made the equivalent of a 20 oz bag of frozen vegetables. I made real mashed potatoes, rather than instant, and only used about 2-3 cups, rather than 4. It took a lot of time to prepare, but it was worth it.

  • YUM YUM YUMMY my hubby and I loved this dish I had never had sheppards ttype pie, but after trying this I will have it agian. This is a highly recomended recipe ty so much fo it

  • Very good. I used Butter and Herb box potatoes though and it really added to it. Next time I might try boxed augratin or scalloped on top Thank you.

  • This recipe is awesome My family loves it

  • Id add more cheese on top of the potatoes. I used canned corn and beans, meant to use carrots. A good rib stickin recipie. Thanks : )

  • This recipe might not be among the fanciest, but my kids LOVE it. My 8 year old stepdaughter can make most of the recipe w/out help; another plus. This is a good "meat & potatoes" recipe, and a great way to get my kids to eat their veggies. Its especially good with "real" mashed potatoes. Thanks for the crowd pleaser

  • This is such a flexible recipe, good for using any variety of veggies available. I used just carrots and peas this time, but will try other combinations. Delicious


  • A good base recipe. I added a package of stew seasoning to the meat and made my own mashed potatoes, which I covered with sharp cheddar during the last 5 minutes.

  • I Loved how easy this was I added Pepper and Garlic salt to the ground beef and onions. It tasted great. I used frozen veggies, so the cook time was a little longer. I also added Lima beans. Next time I will try a brown gravy on the side too. This is a definte keeper.

  • Use more cheese than it calls for.

  • I will never make this again. Virtually inedible and incredibly expensive compared to making it from scratch.

  • Nice hearty recipe. Great on a cold fall evening. I modified using homegrown herbs and vegetables from my garden. Sprinkled chopped fresh parsley, majoram, & thyme over my homegrown carrots, peas, beans, & corn. I also added shredded cheddar & monterey jack cheese over beef mixture, next added vegetables w/herbs, layered processed cheese over veggies and topped with homemade garlic/parsley mashed potatoes. I added milk instead of water. I wasnt quite sure how the top crust would brown, but it came out perfect.My picky boyfriend even had seconds.

  • My husband thought this was OK. I thought it lacked flavor. Im not a canned vegetable fan so I judged the veggies to be a bit mushy. There are other "shepherds pie" recipes that are much tastier. Wouldnt make again.

  • I use the meat/onion mixture on the bottome of a 2 quart cassrole mixed with a little instant mashed potatoes. Then I layer a can or corn, and then the remaining potatoes. I make enough potatoes for six servings. Then then cheese goes on top. I will try adding more veggies. Sounds good

  • This isnt GOURMET, but it is good and is easy to fix. In fact, it is what I usually fix and take to households who have new babies or an illness and need a meal brought in. As another reviewer noted, it should be called "Josephs Coat Casserole." See Genesis 37:3.

  • The family thought this was pretty good. Forgot to add the cheese and it still was tasty, had to add some spice though as it seemed very bland. Thyme, garlic salt and onion powder did the job beautifully.

  • Great hearty meal for the whole family. I cook the hamburger with worcestershire sauce to give this dish a little twist.

  • This is an awesome dish for the whole family

  • It was easy to prepare, and once it was all assembled just had to throw it in the oven. Everyone who ate it really liked it.

  • This was a nice easy throw together dinner. I only added corn and peas because I was worried about "overdoing" it but it could easlily carry all the veggies called for. This will be a repeat. Thanks for posting.

  • I cant believe Im writing this, but I actually threw this one out. HOWEVER...I think it had a lot to do with the fact that I tried to use ground turkey (just use the real stuff LOL). However, I could taste the "canned"-ness of the veggies. Would probably have been awesome with the beef and fresh veggies.

  • I did take a few suggestions from other reviewers and seasoned the meat with garlic italian seasoning and season salt, I used real mashed potatoes and added chives to them I used frozen mixed veggies as that is what we prefer. I did precook them before putting them into the casserole. My hubby and both kids(except onions:) loved it. Very rarely does everyone like the same meal

  • Great basic recipe. I cleaned out the fridge and freezer using leftover barbecue meatballs, frozen corn and peas. Followed rest of recipe, and it came out great Thanks for sharing.

  • My husband requests this casserole on a regular basis. I usually have to make extra mashed potatoes since the 4 doesnt seem to cover it. I also put a few pats of butter on top and add Parmesan cheese at 5 minutes left to bake. I also season the hamburger to give it a little more of a "kick". Great job though
