In honour of Groundhog Day, I am thrilled to share Jordon’s mom’s recipe for…
1 cup elbow macaroni
1 quart boiling salted water
1 pound ground beef (we use chicken or turkey but you could use groundhog)
1 large onion, chopped
1 10-oz. can vegetable soup
1 10-oz. can tomato soup
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
Dash of Tobasco
Brown beef in frying pan. Stir macaroni in water for 5 minutes. Drain. Mix remaining ingredients together; combine with macaroni in large casserole. Make well around outside edges of dish to collect any grease. Cover. Bake at 325F for 30 minutes. Remove cover. Bake 30 minutes longer. Pour off grease. Yield: 8-10 servings.
Personal Note: The name of this dish was coined by my great grandfather who was teasing my mother by telling her that he had shot a groundhog for dinner.

My note: This recipe is totally yummy and all three of Jordon’s kids love it – a confluence of taste that is almost unheard of. As for feeding 8-10… I think it only applies if you don’t have a teenager in the house. With two teens and a tween we are lucky to have leftovers.
