Ground Beef Noodle Bake

Ground Beef Noodle Bake

I’m not sure what made me think of this old-fashioned recipe…I’d call it comfort food. I don’t think my Mom made it but it was always around at someone’s house. I made it way back when I was a young Mom. I always called it Ground Beef Noodle Bake. I suspect it has roots in the German Kugel but became “casseroled up” in the U.S., much the way our “American Goulash” did.

Nathalie Duprees Meatloaf

Nathalie Duprees Meatloaf

Do y’all know Nathalie Dupree? She’s like the queen of Southern cooking; the Southern Julia Child. So when a friend (the same friend who introduced me to Panera’s Steak & White Cheddar Panini and many other meals & recipes over the years – she has great taste!) mentioned that Nathalie Duprees Meatloaf was a family favorite, I couldn’t wait to try it. It’s actually been on my must-make list for a while and I gotta say it’s just the perfect thing to make on a cold winter weekend.

I really have been in fun food mode, especially with Halloween coming up and fall here. See, in the summer most of us Minnesotans are out doing whatever we can to take advantage of the weather, but when fall comes we like to tuck in and party at home. Or at least I do! And especially if I have Juicy Lucyfer Sliders.

They’re juicy and super flavorful and can I just say Caramelized Onions and melty Provolone or Gruyere and an Onion Bun just to drive those flavors home? Do I even need to say anything else?
