Most everyone I know likes hamburger, ground beef and it can be purchased fairly reasonably to help with the food budget and can be purchased without a lot of fat content. There are so many wonderful and appetizing ways to use hamburger besides the plain old burger patty. I’m always looking for tasty but inexpensive recipes that are good for me and easy to prepare. I often lean toward casseroles that can be eaten for several meals or feed a crowd. Casseroles made with hamburger definitely work. Because there is just me that I am preparing meals for these days, most of the time, I also appreciate it if the recipe is one that I can divide into individual meals and freeze for later use so I am not compelled to eat the same thing several days in a row. I appreciate a bit of variety in my meals. A friend shared the following recipe with me and it fits all criteria. It really is very good. I hope you will try it and enjoy it too.
HAMBURGER AND CORN CASSEROLE
1 lb. ground beef,(Hamburger) browned and drained
1 small onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp. finely chopped pimento
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
4 cups egg noodles, cooked and drained
salt, pepper to taste
Brown ground beef. Add onions, celery, parsley and pimento. (drain off excess fat). Add corn and both cans of soup. Stir and set aside. Cook the four cups of egg noodles until just tender. Drain and rinse in warm water. Combine meat/soup with noodles in a 6 qt. casserole dish. Stir to combine. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly, about 20 to 30 min. Allow to stand about 10 minutes before serving.
