Cheeseburger Macaroni: Need some Ideas and Recipes.

I used to love the taste of this stuff, and can still shovel it down. the Hamburger Helper brand. I haven't eaten it in a while as i don't like to eat crap like that.

I'd like to make a home made cheeseburger mac that tastes like the hamburger helper version, only 10x better. But there is some kind of flavor in there i like.

I want to use the best ingredients i can find.

Any ideas or recipes for me?

Cheers.

edit: Yo gang, btw, i tried to google some recipes for this and they all SUCKED.

Cheers again.

Need a little more info...

...Most hamburger meals would seem to have onions and maybe a little garlic in there. What did the finish product look like. For the cheese, I would think cheddar and a little Velveeta.

I'd prepare a half cup of elbow macaroni. Fry your hambuger with garlic, onions, green chilies. I'd stir in enough velveeta to make it creamy and add the macaroni. Then grate cheddar cheese on top and bake at 350 till it bubbles. Oh, and a six pack of beer. If it turns out lousy, drink the beer.

Beer does little to me these days unless it's a good strong IPA

If i ruined the meal i'd be hittin up wild turkey

oh and i'm going to stick with a stovetop one dish skillet type of thing here, not a casserole.

I see alot of internet sites use Ketchup in it. Hmm.

ill wait for more feedback

You just made some mac and cheese.

Fry up some hamburg with onion and garlic and combine. See how that tastes then fiddle with the seasonings. I can't help with that as I've never had that stuff.

Try this recipe, and tweak it however you like!

Texas More

1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 1/2 lb elbow macaroni
1 can corn
2 can mushrooms
1 can chopped tomatoes; undrained
2 cups spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
salt & pepper
1/2 lb Velveeta; sliced


Crumble ground beef into large pasta bowl and cook in microwave till pink is gone. Meanwhile, cook pasta in boiling water till almost done. Drain meat in large colander, mashing with fork to remove grease. Pour pasta into colander right over meat. Dump in corn and mushrooms and drain all well. Return to pasta bowl and add spaghetti sauce and canned tomatoes. Mix well and adjust seasoning. (If mixture seems a little dry, add a small can of tomato sauce.) Cook in microwave till warmed through. Top with Velveeta cheese and nuke till cheese is melted and bubbly. *if you wish, you may divide into 2 or more smaller bowls before cooking, and freeze some. *For a tasty variation, delete mushrooms and add a can of chili hot beans. Add 1 tsp cumin and a dash of hot sauce. *Sliced green or black olives and paprika may be sprinkled on top of Velveeta.

You can easily adapt this for the oven.

Thank you constance. appreciate you trying to help me out. But i dont eat corn, dont want mushrooms in this, and think that 8 OZ of cheese is far far too little for that much pasta......

Again i appreciate you trying to help me out.

If this helps, the recipe i'm going for does not really have a tomato based sauce.
