A little while ago, I purchased a cookbook at a garage sale. It was a gem of a find! In the 1950s, a bunch of US Military Officer wives compiled a collection of their favorite casseroles! There are over 200 of them inside and I am going to share one casserole with you each week!
Can you tell I am excited?
This week’s recipe is insanely easy – Beef & Noodle Casserole.
Let me know what you think! Did you make this for your family?
This is the finished product. Not the most photogenic casserole ever. But you can just see all the flavors that fill the plate! And you can see the fiber and veggies inside too.
One of my favorite things about this cookbook are the bylines. It gave me a little peep into the social constructs of the 1950s. The women are not listed by their names, but by whom they are married to. I wish I knew who Mrs. G. C. Powell is, but I’m so glad she submitted this recipe. It’s delicious!
Not much different here. I’ve made quite a few recipes by browning garlic, onion, peppers and ground beef together. Simple!
This is where it starts to look questionable! Will this taste good? I had to go by faith at this point. It looks like slop!
Wow! Surprisingly, it came out amazing! The liquid baked out and the flavors were subtle but very popular with my little children.
Everyone ate it up!! There were hardly any leftovers and my sister in law even asked for the recipe. I am definitely making this again!
