One morning I woke up and this recipe was blasted all over my Facebook news feed. Sour Cream Noodle Bake, and to be specific, Pioneer Woman’s Sour Cream Noodle Bake.

I was taken back to my childhood and wanted to try her recipe immediately for my guys’ dinner. However, a quick scan and I realized that wasn’t going to happen. Or at least not without a trip to the store first. And I had just gone to the store. I hate going to the store with a two year old.

So, I immediately began rooting around in my refrigerator for something that could be a substitute…or do I just add more sour cream?

I decided to go with sour cream and cream cheese. And it turned out delicious. Here is my version of Sour Cream Noodle Bake. And it’s great because I always¬†every item on this ingredient list in my refrigerator or freezer!


Sour Cream Noodle Bake
  • 2 lbs. of hamburger
  • 1 can of tomato sauce (I use Hunts)
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1 package of cheddar cheese
  • 1 package of egg noodles
  • Salt and Pepper and Onion Salt
  • 9x13 baking dish
  1. Brown your hamburger and drain the extra grease when it's all cooked thoroughly.
  2. While the hamburger is cooking start up some boiling water.
  3. Once the water is boiling add your egg noodles. And cook them until they are nice and soft, but not too soft. Then drain.
  4. Add tomato sauce to your hamburger and give it a good stir.
  5. Add some salt, pepper, and onion salt to the hamburger sauce. Just enough for taste.
  6. Now, back to the egg noodles. Add your sour cream and cream cheese to the egg noodles and mix.
  7. Time to start layering. Add a layer of egg noodles to the bottom of your baking dish and then add a layer of the hamburger. Repeat.
  8. Once you are out of room or out of supply, top the casserole off with cheddar cheese.
  9. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
