Husband’s Delight Freezer Casserole Recipe

On holidays and birthdays, it’s our tradition that the honoree chooses their favorite dish. It’s only fitting that David’s choice for Father’s Day was a family favorite – Husband’s Delight Freezer Casserole. On a day that was destined to be very sad and difficult for my beloved husband, I was glad that I could offer him his favorite meal, cooked with love.

This recipe is so easy to make and there are never leftovers… it’s that delicious! When I make this dish, I double it and freeze the second casserole for those nights when I don’t feel like cooking. It freezes so well!

Husband’s Delight Freezer Casserole

1 package egg noodles
2 lbs. ground beef
1 26-oz. jar spaghetti sauce
8 oz. sour cream
8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Salt/Pepper to taste

Cook the egg noodles according to package directions; then drain well with a colander.

Start layering your casserole by placing the cooked and drained noodles into the bottom of a large baking dish. Beat the cream cheese and sour cream together and spread over noodles. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to spread, so I usually put several spoonfuls of the cheese mixture on top of the noodles and then spread them around evenly. It won’t be gorgeous to look at, but it’s going to taste amazing!

Brown the meat and drain well. Add a big jar of spaghetti sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Heat to bubbling and then remove from heat.

Pour the meat sauce mixture over the cheese mixture in the baking dish. At this point, my mouth is watering and my kids (and husband) are usually hanging over my shoulder wondering when dinner is going to be ready.

Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top of your casserole. You can use as little or as much as you’d like… we like a lot! Pop it into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

If you make a double recipe and want to freeze the second casserole, just cover it tightly (I use Pyrex with a snap lid). I usually pull it down to the fridge the night before to thaw it out, then cook as usual – 20 minutes at 350 degrees. If you want to put the casserole directly into the oven from the freezer, I’d recommend baking it covered on about 250 degrees to start, then after about 15 minutes or so, turning the heat up to 350 degrees and cooking as directed. Delicious!

As always, the family finished off the casserole in record time… I think if I cooked both casseroles, they’d probably eat both casseroles, because Husband’s Delight is that tasty. As it is, David licked the platter clean…

  1. I loved those pictures at the end of David fighting off the kids to get the last drops!! And by the way, how did you do the recipe card? I have seen that done so many times on other blogs, but never asked how it is done.

    1. Aren’t those hilarious?! πŸ˜‰

      The recipe card is a plug-in called… y’know, I think it’s just called “Recipe Card”. It’s totally customizable as far as layout, color, font and such. Let me know if it doesn’t come up in the plug-in search and I’ll find the link where I downloaded it. πŸ™‚

        1. It hadn’t occurred to me either. I googled to see how others created their recipe cards and that’s how I found it. I think it looks so professional, and prints in several different sizes, which is nice!

          1. Oh glad it wasn’t just me, because seriously felt like a bit of a spaz on that one. But so cannot wait to try and may need to share a recipe soon!! πŸ™‚

  2. Hi from ICLW. Wow, I’m so going to have to try that with just a few substitutions like yogurt for sour cream and marscarpone for the cream cheese (basically same stuff but what I have on hand.

  3. LOL … I love the picture of him licking his plate! That’s a good meal right there!

    Thank you for linking to Raising Imperfection.
    Please come back Friday to see if you were featured. πŸ™‚

  4. So good!!!! 2 thumbs up from hubby and 8 and 3 yr old. My husband and I are already fighting over left overs. Thank you for sharing this recipe, definitely going to be in my rotation.

    1. This recipe feeds my family of four (plus seconds!), and we always have some leftovers, so I’d definitely cut it in half for the two of you, and you’ll have leftovers for the next day!
