A Short History

Casseroles have been a staple of American cuisine since the early 20th century, known for their convenience and the ability to blend various ingredients into one delicious bake. Adding almonds, or “amandine,” to dishes for texture and flavor has French origins and brings a touch of elegance to this hearty meal. The Amandine Beef and Noodle Casserole is a modern take on traditional casseroles, incorporating the nutty crunch of almonds to elevate the dish.

Tips for Making Amandine Beef and Noodle Casserole

  • Noodle Preparation: Cook the noodles just until al dente to prevent them from becoming mushy during the baking process.
  • Sautéing: Briefly sauté the onions and mushrooms to release their flavors before adding the beef, ensuring a rich base for the casserole.
  • Cream Cheese: The crumbled cream cheese adds a creamy texture and tangy flavor that balances the savory beef and tomato soup.
  • Crunchy Topping: Corn flakes provide a crispy topping that contrasts wonderfully with the soft noodle mixture, while the slivered almonds add a nutty flavor and elegant touch.
  • Baking: Bake the casserole until bubbly to ensure all the flavors meld together beautifully. Adding the almonds towards the end keeps them crunchy and prevents them from burning.
