My mother was not a cook, so anything we ate had 3 steps or less and came from a can; but this one I've always loved and make for my kids all the time!

When I was young we had this often as my mother was in nursing school and it was a quick dinner. Later I used to baby sit several childern before church club and I made this every week. All the kids would clear their plates every time. Plus, gotta love that it is quick and easy!!

Gotta go 5 stars on this one. My single mother made this often when we were kids too. (She used cream of celery and cream of mushroom.) I don't remember a lot of beef those years either! A few years ago, I found myself alone on Christmas as my husband was "at sea" with the Navy. I lied to the family over the phone and said I had been invited to a friends house for Christmas dinner. Actually, I made this dish and it was the closest thing I could do to actually being home. Thanks for the memories!
