1 lb. extra wide egg noodles
1 - 12 serving size box mashed potato mix (or make your own)
1 stick butter (melted)
3/4 lb. American cheese (slices)
1 small onion (chopped)
Cook noodles according to bag directions--drain but do NOT rinse. Grease a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Prepare mashed potato mix (or make your own). Place all of the noodles on the bottom of the baking dish. Spread all of the mashed potatoes over the noodles. Layer the cheese on top of the mashed potatoes. In a skillet add the butter and the chopped onions--cook/stir over medium heat until onions are soft. Spread the buttered onion mixture over the cheese. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbling hot.
