This is a wonderful and easy casserole, and if you love French onion soup as much as I do it's a must try - make extra soup next time you make a batch and save some for this recipe! I actually didn't have leftover soup, so I whipped up a batch with 3 caramelized onions, a can of beef broth, and an equivalent amount of white wine simmered on low about 40 minutes. To me it was perfectly flavorful so I didn't feel the need to add much seasoning to this dish - but you can certainly add herbs, or even mix in something like frozen peas to up the veggie content and color if you'd like!
French Onion Soup Beef Casserole
2 cups leftover French onion soup
6-oz egg noodle pasta
1 lb ground beef
salt and pepper
6 slices (or 1 cup shredded) Swiss cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the noodles about 8 minutes, or until al dente.
- Drain and add to a large mixing bowl.
- Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet cook the ground beef over medium to medium-high heat, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper, stirring often and breaking apart any large chunks until cooked through (about 8-10 minutes). Drain any excess grease if needed, and add the ground beef to the mixing bowl with the noodles. Add in the cream of mushroom soup and the French onion soup. Stir to combine and spread in the prepared baking dish. Taste and adjust seasonings if you'd like - flavor will depend primarily on the flavor of your French onion soup so feel free to punch it up with additional salt, pepper, garlic powder, herbs, etc. if you prefer!
- Top with shredded or sliced cheese.
- Bake in the preheated oven 25-30 minutes, until casserole is heated through and cheese is well melted.
