Oodles Noodles Casserole

There are dozens of versions of this casserole floating around out there. I've seen this called Yankee Doodle Dandy, Sour Cream Noodle Bake, and Ground Beef Casserole. I call mine Oodles Noodles because I add extra noodles in order to satisfy the bottomless pit that is my husband. I'll do anything to get leftovers.


  • 5 c. medium egg noodles
  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • 1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1/3 c. cream cheese, softened

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill a large stock pot with water and let come to a boil. Add in noddles.

2. While noodles are cooking, brown ground sirloin in skillet over medium-high heat. Drain excess fat. Add tomato sauce and season with salt, pepper, and onion powder.

3. In small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream.

4. Drain noodles and transfer them to a 9 x 13 baking dish. Layer the beef and tomato sauce mixture on top of noodles. Dot the top of the casserole with large spoonfulls of the cream cheese and sour cream mixture. Smooth out, being careful not to disturb ground beef layer underneath.

5. Bake in preheated oven,uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until heated through.

  1. Mmmm! This looks good, especially for a cold, blustery day like we are having today here in BC. I blog about cooking/food sometimes so I can totally relate to what you are saying about your food getting cold while you take pictures. Plus it takes a lot longer to make something when you have to keep stopping to take pictures of the process. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Personally I'd name it Oodles of Noodles

    By the way, in step 1 you wrote noddles, and shouldn't it read "let it come to a boil"?

    And in step 5 you need a space before uncovered

  3. oops.. looks like the the grammar police are on duty. Amateur cook you are arrogant and need to get a life.


Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog. I love hearing from you!
