Creamy Ground Beef and Noodles

A quick meal at the end of a busy day!

After a day of shopping, I really needed to find a quick meal to make for the family.  So, I went online to search for some quick and easy meals, especially during the holiday season!   This one fit all my criteria and to add to my delight, it was delicious! 

The family loved it and it made a lot, so we have extra for some yummy leftovers.  Yes!  Now that's my kind of cookin'!

Here's a little secret...ssh, don't tell.  My granddaughter doesn't like mushrooms, so I chopped them up and she didn't even know they were there.  See, it's okay to hide ingredients when necessary.  You get the flavor and the kids eat the "good stuff" without being any the wiser.  LOL!


1 onion, chopped
4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. ground beef
1 10 3/4 oz. can Golden Mushroom Soup
1 cup Half and Half or milk (I was out of milk so I used the H&H...delicious)
1/2 tsp. salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. paprika (for a little color)
1 Tbsp. butter
8 oz. of cooked noodles (about 1/2 of a 16 oz. pkg.)

Sauté onion and mushrooms in olive oil, in nonstick skillet until onions are translucent, approximately 5-7 minutes.  Add ground beef; stirring to break up meat until meat is cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Add soup, milk, salt, pepper, paprika and butter; heat through and stir occasionally, for about 5 minutes.

Add cooked noodles and stir gently to combine.

This serves 6-8 big helpings!

Serve with warm rolls and a salad; it's a great meal.

Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.   -Hebrews 4:16
