I 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!
*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)
*spoonful or two sour cream
*grill mates smokehouse maple seasoning
*shredded Parmesan cheese (on top)
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.
