My dad was a major meat and potatoes guy. He was also a child during the depression and loved making this odd meal. He was the only one in the house that liked this, but when he had a chance to make it, he would.
He would boil and drain large egg noodles. While the noodles were cooking, he would brown and drain ground round. Mix these together and add one can of cream of mushroom soup; one can of corn, drained; and salt and pepper to taste. He may have added water with the soup but I just don't really remember. Sometimes, he would put this concoction on french bread.
I wonder if this recipe contributed to my becoming a vegetarian!
