Servings 8 servings
- 1 bag (12 oz) wide egg noodles
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 can (10.75 oz) condensed tomato soup
- 1 can (10.75 oz) golden mushroom soup
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese or more if wanted
Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
Cook noodles according to package instructions. * When the noodles are done drain them but do not rinse them.
In a skillet pan, over medium-high heat, brown ground beef with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Brown and crumble until the beef is no longer pink.
In a large mixing bowl, add the drained & cooked egg noodles, ground beef mixture, tomato soup, golden mushroom soup, milk, dried onion, Worcestershire sauce, and parmesan cheese. Stir together until it's well combined.
Evenly spread into the prepared baking dish. Cover with tin foil (or leave it uncovered if you want the crunchier baked egg noodle pieces on the top).Bake for 20 minutes.
Take out the casserole and add the shredded cheese on top. Bake for about 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
Golden Mushroom Soup : The can of golden cream of mushroom is important to this dish. It's like the cream of mushroom soup (in fact it will be right next to it in the store) but it's a tomato based mushroom soup which pairs well with the tomato soup. Yes, you can use regular cream of mushroom soup but the flavor of this casserole is in the golden cream of mushroom soup.
Onion : Some may prefer fresh onion. If that's that case then finely chop it up and cook it with the ground beef and spices.
Recipe changes : The only change to the original recipe is the addition of the Colby Jack cheese on top of the casserole. It provides some needed flavor and makes it really cheesy. I did change up the process of preparing the casserole to increase the flavor of the final dish.
