Let’s face it, there are times when all you want to eat is something basic and cheap to make. This Dried Beef Casserole is all of that and takes advantage of things that are right in your pantry or fridge. I love the simplicity of this recipe and I also love that it doesn’t make a ton. Now that my family is getting smaller, the kids are growing up and moving away, I find that I am often left with way too many leftovers in the fridge. This casserole is only a 9×9 inch square baking dish, so it is just the right size.
This Amish inspired dish starts off like so many wonderful dishes, with sauteed onions.
A few sliced mushrooms for good measure.
There’s lots of goodies, like chunks of cheddar cheese, diced hard-boiled eggs and macaroni.
And of course, the dried beef. Always rinse dried beef under cold water and drain it before using it in a recipe. It is much too salty to use straight out of the jar.
All these good things get spread into your baking dish, and baked together.
Look how yummy that is when it comes out of the oven.
