Cheeseburger Macaroni

Daddy Ladybug love Hamburger Helper, but I like to make things from scratch as much as possible, so it's forbidden in our house. Here's my version of a great easy meal that everyone will love.

Cheeseburger Macaroni

2 lb Ground Beef
1 cup Onions, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
4 cups Milk
1 cup Water
4 cups Elbow Macaroni (uncooked)
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Seasoning Salt
1 & 1/2 tsp Oregano
1 & 1/2 tsp Parsley
1 & 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 Tbsp Beef Oxo (broth seasoning)
2 cups Valveeta Cheese, cubed (or shredded cheddar cheese if you want to be healthy!)

Brown meat. Add onions and cook until tender, add garlic for 30 seconds. Add milk, water, macaroni, sugar and seasonings. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 8-10 minutes until macaroni is tender, but not overcooked. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Cover and let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving to allow the liquid to absorb.

This is a large recipe, makes about 8 generous portions and you might even have left overs for lunch too!

Don't buy Hamburger Helper - make this delicious easy meal instead.
