Recipe Trader Sundays: Hamburg

Posted Jan 03 2010 5:00am

This recipe comes from my mother-in-law, who is of German descent and grew up in South Central Pennsylvania, thus the title of “hamburg” instead of “hamburger”. While not a fancy dish, my husband remembered it fondly from growing up and it is a nice, easy meal to prepare when you want some warm comfort food.



  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato soup
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups uncooked broad noodles
  • 1 small can corn
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

Her instructions read, simply, “Fry pan, cover, low heat 15-20 minutes.”

I’ll expand a bit on that for anyone who needs a little more detail. :)

  1. Brown the ground beef. Drain if desired.
  2. Add the other items, cover and cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes or until done.
  3. I have found it better not to drain the corn because the extra liquid lets me cook it a little longer, thus avoiding crunchy corn!
  4. Broad noodles are wide egg noodles. You can also use other widths. I wasn’t familiar with these before I moved to PA.
  5. You could add onion or other such things if you desire – totally up to your taste, I just don’t like them.
