Ground Beef, Noodle, Cream of Chicken Soup Casserole

This is comfort food. When my husband's grandmother passed away 25 years ago a neighbor sent this over to my mother-in-laws house, it was very well received as all the other neighbors were sending over cakes, pies and jello salads. We have been making this ever since. Hint: Put this together the night before and finish it off when you get home from work.

This was a big hit with my boys. They wanted me to make it again the next night! I did as one reader suggested and used cream of chicken as well as cream of mushroom soups. I also added the onion soup mix. I put corn , mushrooms and garlic powder in it along with a little chili powder for an added zing. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!

I added frozen mashed onion to the ground beef and fried them. I used a can of evaporated milk instead of water. Added powdered garlic. Added a small can of mushrooms while everything was simmering. Also used non egg noodles...I will add bread crumbs to the top or the dish when baking. I added a tiny bit of celery salt too. When finished the noodles took up some of the flavor so I will make sure that I add a little more spices to the dish before hand. We added peas to the kids meals and they loved it! I will add more then 1/4th cup of water next time since the noodles took up a lot of the juice too. It got a little dry. Oh and the bread crumbs didn’t do anything but dry it out…so I will do the bread topping like you suggested originally or I will do the biscuits.

This was alright, but very bland. Needs something to perk it up.
