It's that time again for MamaKat's writing assignment..... And I decided to pick her prompt to share a recipe because....well, because MamaKat is hungry... oh and of course because I hope others will pick this one and I will be able to get some new recipes for myself too!! And not only will I share the recipe, but I will give you pictures to tempt your tummy.....that gave me a good reason to make it for dinner.
This recipe is one that my mom gave me....she used to make it for us all of the time; and once I started cooking for my own family, I snatched that recipe right up..... #1)because it is so good and #2)because it is so e-a-s-y!!
Please note: I am a "not straight from the recipe" type of cook... but I will do my best to give you accurate amounts (and honestly...it's a really easy recipe)
Hamburger Noodle Casserole
1Lb. Ground Beef
Onion (for cooking with the ground beef)
16 oz. package Fine (or medium) Egg Noodles
1/4 cup milk
1 can Cream of Chicken
1 can Cream of Mushroom
2 (6 or 8 oz) bars Colby, Colby Jack cheese (you can use cheddar too)
Brown the ground beef, with some onion (use your own discretion with that amount) for flavor.
While the beef is cooking, cut up (cubed) about 1/2 - 3/4 of each bar of cheese... (again, you can use more or less depending on how cheesey you like things)
Cook egg noodles as directed
Put drained egg noodles back in pot (or another big bowl) and then add all ingredients and stir... I usually add a little at a time, so it is easier to stir.
Put in a medium-large casserole dish and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes
Enjoy, my friends....and let me know what you think after you try it!!! :)
