Amish Country Casserole is an easy and budget-friendly meal. Egg noodles, ground beef, special sauce and seasonings with a touch of cheese!
A DELICIOUS BEEF AND NOODLE DINNER RECIPE
Full disclosure: I have no idea if this is a true Amish recipe. What exactly makes a recipe ‘Amish’? Is there a set of guidelines or rules for this category of food? All I know is that, in general, if a recipe title starts with the word ‘Amish’, we automatically assume it’s gonna be awesome! Right? So this recipe may (or may not) be Amish but I suppose it doesn’t matter at the end of the day. It’s good and it’s easy and budget-friendly.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Amish Country Casserole is a delicious and hearty casserole made with ground beef, egg noodles, cream of mushroom soup, tomato soup and seasonings.
Yes! Simply prepare the casserole as directed, cover with foil, and refrigerate until ready to bake. When you’re ready to serve, remove the foil and bake in the oven as directed.
This is a hearty and filling dish on its own, but it can be served with a side salad, some garlic bread or some steamed vegetables to balance out the meal.
Certainly! Ground Italian sausage would work wonderfully in this. You could also use ground chicken, turkey or pork as well.
Certainly, although you’d want to make sure they were partially cooked before adding because the cook time for this casserole may not be long enough for certain vegetables to cook throughly.
The milk adds moisture and creaminess to the dish. However, you could substitute with something like sour cream or plain Greek yogurt to still maintain the creaminess and adding a touch more flavor. I would still use the same amount.
Definitely! If you have a small family, like I do, you could separate this into two smaller pans. Eat one now and freeze one for later! After it has cooled fully, just wrap with plastic wrap then aluminum foil and it will freeze well for up to 3 months.
