Do you have to use egg noodles for this recipe?
No, you could use spaghetti if you wanted. I used egg noodles because that's what I had on hand at the time.
Can I use ground turkey burger instead of beef?
Of course! While I prefer turkey burger over beef, my family does not and I get outvoted most times.
How can you fancy up this recipe?
While most like it the way it is, you can always spice it up to your liking. Add in mushrooms with your onions. Maybe add chili paste to make it actually spicy. Add cheese to it as well if you'd like.
Can I boil the noodles in beef broth instead of water?
For sure! This will simply enhance the flavor.
