Corn Beef Casserole
1 (8-ounce) package medium egg noodles, uncooked
1 (12-ounce) canned corn beef

¾ cup of milk (use just ½ cup if using larger soup can)
1 tablespoon of dried minced onion
¼ cup of bread crumbs (seasonal or toasted plain)
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a saucepan, cook the noodles just until tender, drain in a large bowl, chop the corned beef into a coarse crumbly texture.
- Stir in soup, milk, and onion. Grease a 2-quart casserole. Add the noodles and the corn beef mixture and stir together well. Sprinkle the bread crumbs on top.
- Bake covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Serves 6-8 people
Try serving the casserole with petite whole green beans from the freezer or add 1 cup of finely chopped purple cabbage, ¼ cup of diced onions and 2 teaspoons of fennel seed or powder for some true Irish flavor.
