Because a certain someone has a BIRTHDAY TODAY …and one of his ulterior motives to help me with the technical aspects of a blog was to have access to his favorite recipes….another of Grandma B’s recipes.
Mrs. Granatowicz’s Casserole
(Mrs. G was a LEIGH, NEBR- neighbor-)
A JACOB Favorite
1 ½ lbs. hamburger
1 C chopped celery
1 C chopped onion
2 Tb Oil or Butter
1 sm can mushrooms chopped
1 can cream of mushroom Soup undiluted
1 can cream of Chicken Soup undiluted
1 can Chinese Noodles
- brown onions & celery in butter
- mix soups together Add the above to soups.
- brown hamburger , then add #1 & 2
You can add ½ can bean sprouts or/& water chestnuts. I usually DO NOT. Also, you can leave out the can of mushrooms – I usually use these.
- Place in casserole
- Top w/ Chinese Noodles.
- BAKE 350° for 25 to 30 MIN – until heated through. I have a friend who uses Chicken in place of hamburger.
From Jeanette Burrey, I didn’t date the year she gave me the box, but this was in the box….
Back in the day, Chinese noodles meant one thing – THESE things. Now, there’s quite a variety of noodles called Chinese, but these are the one I’m talking about today
The beauty of this casserole is that it is also a last minute Express Lane Special. I usually have celery and onions on hand, it’s the hamburger and the soups – the crema – and the noodles that I need to grab and go. One short list, 10 items or fewer.and a quick mix up and pop in the oven once home. A salad and a bowl of fruit….even better if it’s pineapple chunks you eat with toothpicks or a mango, cut up hedgehog style – OK, 2 more things to pick up.
Open can, pour into a bowl, stick some toothpick in the hunks, happy child at the end of a meal
cut in half, discard pit (or try to root it – I got a little shoot growing out once, but then the cats played wit it one night…)and then cut slices one and and across but not through the skin – pop up and serve…with extra napkins – mangoes are JUICY
