What's for Dinner?

Here it is. The one you've been waiting for. Yep, it's "W.T. Casserole" night. To give you a flavor reference, it's like sloppy joes with cream cheese/sour cream noodles. YUM!

Sloppy Joe Casserole (a.k.a White Trash Delight)
2 lbs. ground chuck
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 cup bbq sauce (and, because this is a WT casserole the sauce must be from a bottle and it must be generic. No name brands allowed.)
3/4 cup spicy ketchup (or regular ketchup and a squirt of hot chili sauce)
1 tbsp. mustard
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz.) container sour cream
3/4 cup chopped green onions
3 cups hot cooked medium egg noodles

2 1/2 cups (10 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese

Cook ground chuck and onion in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and return to skillet.

Add BBQ sauce and next 4 ingredients to beef and onion. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring once.

In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream, stirring until smooth. Stir in green onions and cooked noodles.

Layer half of noodle mixture in a greased 9X13 baking dish. Top with half of beef mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Top with remaining noodle mixture and remaining beef mixture. (If desired, cover and chill overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before baking.)

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 cups of cheese; bake 5 more minutes.

Yield: 8 servings
