So my family loves Hamburger Helper… I know, I hate to admit it… this is one of my easy go to meals. But, I’ve been trying to cut out some of the crap in our meals. BUT, there’s no way I can do away with our Cheeseburger Macaroni– I would be disowned! So, I decided to make my own version of this dish and I must say– it’s a new favorite! And it really was pretty simple!
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion
1 large tomato
1TBS Garlic Powder
Salt/Pepper – to taste
1 can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups macaroni
Sprinkle ground beef with garlic powder and brown in a skillet and drain.
Add in diced onion and tomatoes.
Cook for additional 5 minutes.
Add in water, evaporated milk, macaroni, 1 cup cheddar cheese, and salt/pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes (add water 1/4 cup at a time until macaroni reaches preferred doneness). Add in rest of cheese and let it cool…. sauce will thicken as it cools.
See, told ya it was simple! And I can keep all the ingredients on hand for whenever I need a quick dish!
