Upper Midwest comfort food filter! I'm no great lover of hotdish (casserole), but when I was a kid, my grandma made this excellent hotdish that I would love to replicate. The secret ingredient was Lipton Noodle Soup
. Help me eat my body weight in noodly goodness this weekend!
I know it won't be nearly as good as the stuff Grandma made, but I'm hoping to find that this isn't a dish unique to my family and that there's an actual recipe out there.
A conversation with a friend who grew up in the same part of the country I did (eastern North Dakota/extreme northwestern Minnesota) yielded no results. I've scoured the Internet but can't find anything that looks close.
The ingredients included ground beef, condensed tomato soup, the aforementioned Lipton Noodle Soup mix, and white rice (I think).
Instead of being baked like a traditional hotdish, I think it's cooked in a skillet on top of the stove. It did not contain vegetables of any sort, of course, no cheese, and no cream-of soups.
If you've eaten this or something similar, please hope me.
