Holly's notes for this recipe:
This 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.

Personalize This


Brown hamburger with salt, pepper, brown sugar and onion, drain, then add tomato soup
cook egg noodles, drain, and add the chicken soup to the noodles
layer hamburger mixture and noodle mixture in casserole dish with the processed cheese between the layers. And that's it. It couldn't be easier.
bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour.

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?

Sounds delicious. Add some sauerkraut and you've almost got my sauerkraut casserole recipe...LOL Can't wait to try this!
