Macaroni Stroganoff

In the mood for something a bit more….”International”? Go for the Macaroni Stroganoff.

I have to tattle and say that Denise has confessed a fondness for canned macaroni and cheese. She won’t touch a thing called Stroganoff though. I suspect serving this nightmare of Spam…err I mean “luncheon meat” and canned macaroni and cheese won’t go over well in our house no matter the name. The nutrition content or lack thereof makes me cringe.

That said–it is a quick and thrifty meal. Since none of the ingredients truly makes me queasy, if we went down to a bare bones budget, (always a possibility) this might appear. I think the anti-soup Denise would stick to the black bean soup served with it. (as would the children)

Macaroni Stroganoff

1 can luncheon meat
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cans macaroni and cheese sauce
chopped parsley

Cut meat into strips about 1/2-inch thick. In skillet, brown meat and cook onion in butter until tender. Stir in sour cream and macaroni. Heat; stir now and then. Garnish with parsley.

  1. You said the S word! Also, canned macaroni & cheese doesn’t exist anymore at least not in the way that it did when the recipe was created. Which is too bad because I really did like that macaroni & cheese – except for a few years after I barfed up an entire can of it… TMI?

  2. Say it isn’t true? Canned mac and cheese? Noooo.
