beef in casserolePosted: August 6, 2011
Before Hamburger Helper, There Was Beef In Casserole.
This dish is really easy to make, and even easier to eat! I’m not convinced it served 8… but then again it was the 1970s… when food portions were smaller sized… and like hips… eyes were wide.
1 pound | ground beef
2 teaspoons | salt
2 teaspoons | sugar
1 16-oz. can | diced tomatoes
1 8-oz. can | tomato sauce
2 cloves | garlic, crushed
to taste | fresh ground black pepper
1 8-oz. package | thin egg noodles
1 cup | sour cream
1 3-oz. package | cream cheese
6 | green onions, chopped with some of the tops
1 cup | cheddar cheese, grated
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Combine and simmer 5-10 minutes: the beef, salt, sugar, tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic and pepper.
3. While that’s all simmering, boil the noodles, drain and fold-in the sour cream, cream cheese and chopped onions.
4. In a greased casserole, arrange in layers ~ the meat mixture, noodle mixture and grated cheese.
5. Heat until bubbling, about 35 minutes @ 350°F.

♥ Just 1 cup grated cheese? Um, how about 4… or more!?
