  • Meanwhile, place ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper; cook and stir until evenly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain off grease.

  • Stir the cream cheese and cream of mushroom soup into the ground beef until well blended, about 5 minutes. Mix in the drained noodles and corn. Stir in evaporated milk to reach your desired consistency, about 5 minutes. Top with mozzarella cheese and cook until melted, about 5 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

You can also spread this in a casserole dish and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

I have been searching for this recipe for years! My grandma made it for me when I was a child. It is a mild tasting casserole that is perfect for kids who dicriminating palates nix all veggies except corn! I added a tsp. of worshshires(sp?) sauce & the cheese on top is really not needed. Thank you for providing a childhood favorite that my family loved as well! Read More

I've been making my own version of this for years. Thought I would mix it up and try this one. This was not a hit in my house and I will not make it again. Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed this easy weeknight meal. A quick throw-together kind of hamburger helperish skillet meal it was very hearty. I saw others' comments about the recipe being bland and I think that is because the recipe is very light on the spices. A "pinch" is not nearly enough of any of the spices. I used a generous 1/2 tsp each of the onion powder garlic powder and salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. I also used more evaporated milk than the recpie called for because it was really really thick. With extra milk the consistency was great. We loved it and I will definitely make this again for a super-quick and easy weeknight meal. Read More

Oh so good! Was a big hit in my house but we LOVE cream cheese! My four year old to me I was the "purdiest good cook ever" she ate two bowls of this! Then my 18 mo old had two of her own bowls without the ground beef she seemed to enjoy it very much. Read More

This is an old family recipe. I omit the mozzarella use cream of chicken soup & I use a pkt of brown gravy mix instead of the spices. I do bake it all in the oven instead of on the stovetop...it's better that way I think. Not very healthy but it's great for when you are going for comfort food. My grandkids loved this as much as my children used to! I served it w/ a salad & Golden Sweet Cornbread (from this site). Read More

This was great but sat really heavy so I had a lot of leftovers. The ingredients really added up to a good ole comfort food dish even if it was pretty dense. I like that when it's this tasty. I live alone but failed to cut this recipe so by day 5 of eating this for dinner it seemed a lot less satisfying than when I first made it. Read More
