Ground Beef Casserole loaded with beef, cheese, and egg noodles is sure to be a family favorite.
I can never get enough of cooking or eating casseroles. They’re easy to make, filling, and just have a way of comforting the soul.
Sour cream, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese (yes there’s really that much cheese) make this casserole sinfully rich and gooey. Served with a side salad and some crusty bread, this will easily last 2 meals for a family of four.
It can also be assembled, frozen and defrosted overnight in the refrigerator. Then bake according to recipe directions.
I don’t know what it is about egg noodles, but I absolutely love them. Their flavor and shape is a nice change up from pasta. I’m still Jenny Craiging it this week (down 3 pounds and halfway to my goal in 1 week!) so no foods like Ground Beef Casserole for me this week.
However I could use the comfort of a delicious casserole today because in exactly 1 week my son will be having major surgery in Indianapolis to remove his retroperitoneal lymph nodes. He recently completed chemotherapy for testicular cancer and his tumor markers have come down to the normal range, but he needs to have some lymph nodes removed. Something called RPLND surgery. A doctor named Richard Foster at Indiana University is widely considered the best surgeon in the world for doing this type of surgery and he will be my son’s surgeon.
If anyone lives in the Indianapolis area we would love to hear some restaurant suggestions especially places that are good for take out and are near the IU Medical Complex since we will be there 8 days. We’ve been to Bru Burger and boy do they ever have fantastic burgers 🙂
Love that cheese 🙂 🙂
