Cheeseburger Macaroni from Boxed Mac and Cheese

This was a delicious recipe that used what I had in the pantry. I used boxed mac & cheese because I don’t want to be using 2 cups of cheddar where I don’t have too. I also used Weis mac & cheese which used only 1/4 cup of milk and half a stick of butter, which made me feel like I was using less of my current provisions. I also didn’t have any burger, so I made my own burger from venison slices that I had. I’ll be posting that short post tomorrow morning. I was also considering adding diced tomatoes to the recipe, but I also saw a recipe that used ketchup and mustard instead, and though I was hesitant, it was very good, and I will be making this again in the future. Josh and I also opened a can of pears to go with the meal, and that was a nice treat.

  1. In a large sauce pan, bring 4 cups of water and 2 beef bouillon cubes to a boil. Add macaroni and boil uncovered until al dente. Remove from heat.
  2. On a side burner, heat up a frying pan and 2 Tbsp oil over medium high heat. Add ground beef and brown the beef and break into small chunks. Once cooked, add beef and fat to cooked macaroni.
  3. Return macaroni and beef to medium heat. Continue by preparing macaroni and cheese as directed on package. Finally, Add 1 Tbsp Garlic powder, 4 Tbsp Ketchup, and 1 Tbsp Mustard. Stir and make sure thoroughly heated before serving.

One more thing before you go! I’ve created an Instagram for this blog where I’ll be posting little projects we are up to that don’t deserve a full post, or to give spoilers of upcoming posts! The link can be found in the bar at the top of this page, or on the blog’s home page. Thanks for your time!
