Disclaimer- This post was sponsored by Good Cook as part of the Kitchen Expert Blogger program. I received the items mentioned below to facilitate my post but all opinions are 100% my own.
Good Cook challenged bloggers to create a comfort food, easy dinner dish and gave us each 5 tools to choose from to incorporate using at least 2 in our dish.
Here’s what we received: SMART Ice cream scoop, Flip Measuring spoon, Safe-cut Can Opener, Egg Separator, and Pot Clip Holder. I love all these tools but for this recipe I used the Flip Measuring Spoon, Safe-cut Can Opener, and Pot Clip Holder.
This is a simple recipe that definitely has that comfort food feeling. There aren’t a lot of spices and seasonings in it as I was making it for my family and my children like food to be pretty simple. If I was just making it for my husband and myself I would add some other spices. Instead hubby and I tend to add things to our own plates. For this particular dish hubby and I both added Italian bread crumbs to our meals to give it a little more flavor.
Easy, Cheese Beef and Noodles
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 package of wide egg noodles- COOKED
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 Tablespoons of dried chopped onion ( Hubby forgot to get the onion when he went grocery shopping so I pretended like I was on Cutthroat Kitchen and used what I had on hand)
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1 cup light sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can of corn (feel free to throw in other veggies your family likes. I want to try adding spinach next time)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Brown ground beef with dried onion and Italian seasoning and drain.
2. Add corn.
3. Add cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken soup.
4. Add sour cream.
5. Stir until well incorporated.
6. Simmer covered for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
7. Stir in cooked noodles.
8. Stir in 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and top with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
9. Allow cheese to melt and serve.
Can you guess what I used each tool for? I used the Flip Measuring Spoon to measure my seasoning and chopped dried onion (I LOVE how flexible the spoons are and how you can turn them inside out) , Safe-cut Can Opener to open the can of corn and pull the pull tab up on both cans of soup (a real nail saver plus the can opener leaves no rough edges), and Pot Clip Holder to hold my utensil so I didn’t have to dirty my stove or counter with it.
