Holly's StoryThis recipe came from "Country Magazine." I copied the recipe in 1991. There was an article about the Amish, and they had interviewed a lady who said that this was one of her families favorite recipes. It is a traditional Amish recipe. Susan Feliciano asked me to post the recipe when I told her about it. Of course this gave me a good excuse to make it again. It's a simple casserole but the flavor is sooo good, and its quite a comfort food to boot.
salt and pepper to taste
a little brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped onion
cream of chicken soup-undiluted
16 oz egg noodles
8 oz processed cheese, like velvetta (i used a little bit more)
3layer hamburger mixture and noodle mixture in casserole dish with the processed cheese between the layers. And that's it. It couldn't be easier.

Great recipe. I've noticed egg noodles are a favorite form of pasta in the Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch; as opposed to macaroni. Must be the German influence.

Yes it is...they like wide noodles too. I love this dish. My Grandmother made one much like this.

I know it probably doesn't matter much, but what do you layer with first, the noodles or hamburger?
