Looking for some ideas for cheeseburger macaroni. Want to make it a skillet dish, no oven.

Was going to use elbow macaroni noodles, make a roux with butter and flour, add whole milk infused with garlic and onion,half velveeta half sharp cheddar, then add worchestershire, mustard powder, dash hot sauce, ground chuck, sauteed onion (cooked along with the chuck)

How would you make this dish? what else can i add to mine?

I want it to taste like the hamburger helper would, if it was actually home made.

Please give me all the feedback you can on how to replicate that taste.

Cheers.

to the top

Do you think beef broth has a place in this dish?

Think of what a cheeseburger has in it, and go from there.
I'd brown the ground beef with onion, S&P, drain, mix in catsup, mustard and Worchestershire sauce, add cooked elbows, then stir in your cheese sauce.

Maybe add a little bacon...
If not, I like the taste of peas in mine (frozen would be easy, just at the end.) The way all off those flavors marry!!! YUM!!!

I have used the "Blue Box" mac & cheese before to make this. Sauteed' some green, red or yellow peppers and sweet onion while browning the ground beef.


Added a little shredded cheeses (colby-jack, mozzarella, chedder, or whatever is your preference) prior to removing from the pan.

do you think beef broth or sour cream have a place in this dish?

nix on the sour cream. while lovely in its place, I usually don't have it on cheeseburger things - you're heading into stroganoff territory by using it.

doubt the beef broth is needed either, unless your mix is too dry for some reason.

This dish does not need sour cream. Don't get it too complicated.

OKay here is what this dish is going to be.

1 lb ground beef
sauteed onion with beef
garlic sauteed with beef
8 oz Cheddar
8 Oz Velveeta
Good amount Worchestershire
Half of a can of 15oz Diced Tomatoes
8oz Shells
Mustard powder
cracked pepper
salt

Okay how do i incorporate the cheese into this? can i mix the meat and the vegetable and tomato liquid together, with the elbow macaroni, and mix that.

and then separately make a roux, then add the cheese melted into the roux and combine the two sauces

or should i skip the roux and throw the cheese in with the tomatoes, tomato liquid, beef, onions, cooked pasta, etc etc, and just let it melt into the sauce.

thanks in advance
