How to Make Amish Country Casserole

Follow these simple steps to make the casserole:

  1. Prep the oven and dish. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Cook the noodles. Cook the egg noodles in a large pot of salted water according to package directions until al dente. Drain well.
  3. Brown the beef. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef and onion. Cook until the beef is browned and the onion is soft, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Drain the excess fat.
  4. Make the sauce. In a large bowl, whisk together the tomato soup, cream of mushroom soup, milk, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion flakes.
  5. Combine the ingredients. Add the cooked beef mixture and the cooked noodles to the soup mixture. Stir until everything is evenly combined.
  6. Assemble the casserole. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly over the top.
  7. Bake and serve. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Tips for the Best Amish Country Casserole

Follow these tried-and-true tips for the best casserole:

  • Pick your pasta wisely. Use a structured pasta like rotini, bowtie, or gemelli. They hold up well in the casserole. Avoid thin noodles.
  • Swap out the meat. While ground beef is traditional, you can substitute ground turkey or chicken for a leaner version.
  • Add a healthy twist. Mix in vegetables like mushrooms, peppers, or herbs to make it more flavorful and nutritious.
  • Have fun with toppings. Sprinkle the top with paprika, parsley, breadcrumbs and/or extra shredded cheese before baking.
  • Try some tasty variations. Make it cheesy by mixing in shredded cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite cheese. Use different cream soups like cream of chicken or cream of celery. Or add a splash of half-and-half or heavy cream at the end for extra richness.

How to Store

If you have leftover casserole, here’s how to keep it fresh.

To Store: Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Allow the casserole to cool completely before covering and refrigerating.

To Freeze: Assemble the casserole as directed, but do not bake it. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil before placing in the freezer.

When ready to bake, thaw the casserole overnight in the refrigerator. Bake as directed, adding an extra 10-15 minutes to the baking time if needed. You can freeze for 2-3 months.

To Reheat: To reheat leftovers, place the desired portion in a microwave-safe dish.

Heat in the microwave until warmed through, stirring occasionally. You can also reheat in a 350°F oven for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
