I am not sure where this particular recipe came from originally because it was on a fax to Freda’s work in 2008. However, since she had it in her recipe box, I am calling it “Freda’s Hamburger Casserole”. I tried it for supper this evening. It was super-easy and was very good. I wrote a note at the end to show what I did different than the recipe.
2 lbs ground beef sautee’d with chopped onion….brown and drain.
1 lb cheddar cheese, grated
1 large can cream of mushroom soup
1 bag medium egg noodles
Place in buttered casserole dish. Heat at 350 degrees until bubbly…
OPTIONS: top with chopped bread crumbs that have been browned in skilled of butter, or use croutons.
NOTE FROM TERESA: I made this casserole as pictured with ritz crackers crumbled in butter for the topping…bowtie noodles instead of egg noodles…sprinkle a bit of coarse California sea salt into the mixture before baking and add about 1 cup extra cheese just because it’s yummy. It took about 30 minutes to bake and it turned out GREAT!
