One of my favorite childhood meals, and a dish that my Grandma always made! It’s simple, delicious, and hearty! My Grandma’s Soup-to-Nuts Casserole comes together fast, and feeds a crowd. It’s a great weeknight dinner that’s always a hit.
WOW – where is time going? I honestly can’t believe we’re this far into 2017, or that we’re this far into summer. I almost don’t feel like summer has even started, and yet it’s mid-July. What happened?
If you’ve got kids, you’re probably thinking about back-to-school, and maybe you’re feeling like the school year is overdue to start. Haha, just kidding. 🙂 I threw together one of my childhood favorite meals that is going to be a life-saver for a simple weeknight dinner when your schedule changes in the fall!
A lot of my friends’ kids are heading back to school in mid-August already. You’re probably prepping for a completely different routine, much more structured than you’ve enjoyed during the summer, and my Grandma’s Soup-to-Nuts Casserole is super simple and easy, no frills, but completely hearty and filling. Also, it feeds a crowd, so if you need quick weeknight dinners that are going to feed a lot of mouths, I’ve got a good one for you.
I grew up on this stuff. Grandma’s Soup-to-Nuts Casserole was a classic for us. If my mom couldn’t get us off to school, a lot of times it was my Grandma who was helping us get on the bus, or making dinner for the evening when we got home. My cousins remember eating a lot of Soup-to-Nuts too, and our childhoods wouldn’t be the same without it.
Some foods and recipes can create such wonderful memories. I’ve made my Grandma’s Soup-to-Nuts Casserole for years now myself, and it’s perfect for a simple, complete dinner. With veggies, ground beef for protein, and egg noodles for carbs – no side dish needed! This recipes uses three different cans of soup, believe it or not, and they all come together with such phenomenal flavor. I LOVE this casserole.
My best friend just returned to work after maternity leave, and I recommended this to her as well. It’s so helpful to have a repertoire of tried-and-tried, simple recipes on hand for busy schedules.
When you’re preparing to manage a busy back-to-school schedule, and you need to plan simple meals, this is a great option.
