Looking for an awesome kid friendly hamburger recipe? Well look no further than this delicious Beef Noodle Casserole with Kale dish.
This homemade recipe is very similar to “hamburger helper”. So if you and your family have like boxed hamburger helper in the past, then trust me you will love this.
If your not familiar with hamburger helper than may I ask where have you been the past few decades? Just kidding.
As that boxed stuff was definitely was and still is a staple food in most North American homes. Now I do not mean to be of insult, because perhaps you have never heard of it or have lived in North America that long.
And so in that case you would not know what im talking about at all. For the rest of you i’m sure memories of the stuff are flooding into your thoughts by now.
Well this recipe is similar to that boxed stuff, however mine is way better and healthier for you. And that is because we are making it from scratch verses a boxed brand which uses way to much salt. Plus we are adding fresh kale and real cheddar cheese, hello!
So believe me when I say that this recipe definitely cannot compare to any of the box stuff I just mentioned.
This recipe will feed a family of 8 or if there is less of you, feel free to freeze some for the days to come.
Also you can go ahead and bake two batches. Just double the recipe with my easy to use recipe adjuster above and then simply use two baking pans. This recipe does well as leftovers and can be frozen into a few meal preps.
Note: You can use beef stock to replace the milk if desired.
