On a scale of one – five: 4 (we were almost out of ketchup and, well, who eats a cheeseburger without ketchup? lol)

last week I shared this recipe on my Treats to Try.

K (2years old) LOVED it! He’s not really what I’d call ‘picky’, but lately, he just wants fruit – which is great, but, we’d like some variety – he scarfed this down in no time!

Hubby really liked it! I was worried about the onions, but he didn’t mind them (yay!) He did say that it could be spicier next time (next time, woot!) So, I will throw in…some Tony’s maybe? (If you like a kick and haven’t tried Tony’s…YUM, do it!)

I like it pretty much (I have a hard time eating things that are 90% ground beef after I’ve browned the meat…) I may have Hubby brown the meat next time! Also – I needed more ketchup – and I agree about the “extra kick” needed 🙂

But over all we really liked it!!!

Beef Noodle Casserole

February.28.2009

Cooking instructions: Everything in the dish is fully cooked, so you just need to defrost and heat covered at 375 for about 1 hour (unitl bubbly). Uncover and turn the broiler on for the last few minutes to brown the topping.

Recipe:

1 lb egg noodles cooked and drained
1.25ish lbs ground beef browned and drained. (I use 85/15 so it’s still
1 lb once drained)
2 cans Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup
2 cans Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup
1.5 – 2 cups Sour Cream (depending on your tastes)
1 can (15 oz?) corn drained, or frozen equivalent.

Combine all ingredients and spread in large casserole dish and sprinkle with topping:

1 stick melted butter
about 2 cups Progresso Italian bread crumbs (enough to make moist and crumbley)

Bake at 375 till bubbly, and broil to brown topping.
