Crystal’s Super Simple Homemade Cheesy Mac

Crystal;s Super Simple Cheesy MacI love quick and easy dinners during the week!  Who has time and energy to prepare a four course meal, work, clean house, or whatever all the time, every single day? In the summer, that can be even more important. Our kitchens get way too hot to want to be in there for long, am I right?  Of course, when school starts back if you have even less time.  Always so crazy.  Regardless of the season, this is a perfect week night Cheesy Mac recipe.

I picked up a box of hamburger helper and decided to yum it up!  Having the same old thing gets old fast so I looked around my kitchen and started adding things.  Funny how the best things can come from such unexpected places!  I love mixing up and making things different, especially when they are a good cheat!  It was so stinkin’ delicious that we now have it at least once a week!  I hope you enjoy it!

 

Ingredients:

*1 box cheesy Mac
*1lb of Hamburger (you can add more for a larger family)
*1/2 a can of rotell (if spices aren’t your thing use chopped tomatoes)
*onion
*onion powder
*spoonful or two sour cream
*grill mates smokehouse maple seasoning
*shredded Parmesan cheese (on top)

 

Directions:

 

Brown and drain the hamburger meat. Add in seasonings, onion, and Rotel while the meat is cooking. Next add the season pack with the noodles, following directions on the box. You can skip the onion powder if you aren’t a fan of onion, but we love it! I’m obsessed with it. I add it to everything!
When the noodles are ready add the melted cheese pack from the box and a spoonful or two of sour cream to your liking.  Voila!
Pair this with garlic bread or cottage cheese, or a nice salad for the perfect, quick week night meal.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on my creation!  How do you, would you change it up?

#Free Ground Beef with Hamburger Helper #sp

Pic3When I was a kid, hamburger helper was one of my favorite dinners!  I would get super excited on those nights!  My little brother was super picky and he wouldn’t eat it for the longest, then I started making it and adding a few ingredients and he actually started requesting it.  Funny how that works!

Jazzing up Hamburger Helper and making it more your own is super easy and it makes dinner far less stressful!  Honestly, figuring out what to fix for dinner drives me insane sometimes.  Hamburger Helper takes the stress out of dinner, making it far easier to sit and enjoy your family during dinner.  Personally, I get so worked up cooking sometimes I can’t sit down and relax, but not with hamburger helper!

One of the awesome things about Hamburger Helper is that you can use it as a base and add so much to it, making it special to the likes of your family!
