Marjorie’s Honky Tonk
Serves: 12
  • 1 pound onions, or optionally 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound hamburger, or more if desired
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 pound American cheese, cut up or grated
  • 1 pound shell macaroni, cooked and drained
  • 3 ½ cups or about 28 ounces canned tomatoes
  • Buttered bread crumbs, optional
  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly brown onions in the vegetable oil, then add the hamburger broken up, and cook together with the onions.
  3. Put the soup, undiluted, into a large pan and add the cheese and heat until the cheese is melted.
  4. Add the cooked hamburger and onion to the soup and cheese; stir to mix.
  5. Then add and stir in the macaroni.
  6. Drain the tomatoes and reserve the liquid. Add the tomatoes to the meat and macaroni mixture and add only enough of the reserved tomato liquid to moisten it all.
  7. Pour into a large casserole or a nine-by-thirteen-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
