Cheeseburger Macaroni

Our Cheeseburger Macaroni Recipe is the perfect blend of creamy cheese, seasoned beef, and tender macaroni, creating a satisfying dish that will please the whole family.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups macaroni noodles
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet or frying pan, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned. Break up the meat into crumbles using a wooden spoon or spatula.
  • Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
  • Stir in the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, dried oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine the flavors.
  • Pour in the beef broth and add the macaroni noodles. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the macaroni is cooked al dente.
  • Once the macaroni is tender, stir in the milk and shredded cheddar cheese. Continue to cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the cheese has melted and the sauce is creamy.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and let it rest for a couple of minutes. This allows the flavors to meld together.
  • Serve the cheeseburger macaroni hot, garnished with fresh parsley if desired.
