Cheeseburger Macaroni: 30 Minute Thursday + a Video
October 6, 2016
Cheeseburger Macaroni is a perfect meal for those busy nights that you don’t want to be in the kitchen. This is the best meal for those nights and it tastes great as leftovers!
Can I just say that parents rock and I’m amazed by them daily!
I don’t know how parents do it with more than 2 kids. I look up to you! I’ve been swamped these past couple of days. This school and soccer thing is draining me. Plus sick season is upon us and I know it’s going to hit us soon.
You can tell life’s been hectic lately, right? When life gets hectic I don’t like cook or be in the kitchen. Don’t ask me why, but I get lazy and don’t want to do it. It’s easier to get something or warm something up. Especially on soccer nights when we don’t get home until after 8:30pm.
With that said, I’ve been trying to find easy, quick and healthy recipes to make. When I was younger an easy meal would be throwing hamburger helper together or a frozen lasagna. But that’s not a meal now a days. There’s nothing wrong with those things, but have you ever looked at the ingredients?
I strongly believe when you can’t pronounce some words, then you shouldn’t be eating them. Well…you shouldn’t eat them most of the time. There are times that you can’t help it. I try to feed the family less processed foods and I like to make them fresher foods. But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss my favorite hamburger helper and lasagna. 🙂
I’ve tried numerous copycat Hamburger Helper recipes, but none of them ever tasted right. That changed with this recipe. I found a recipe somewhere around the internet, then adjusted it to my liking. I’ve been making this recipe for so long that I can make it by heart. I love to make it with ground beef most of the time, but when we’re really trying to eat healthy or I don’t have any ground beef on hand, I’ll make it with ground turkey. And it always tastes amazing either way!
This Cheeseburger Macaroni is a quick meal. I love not having to be in the kitchen all day too. A perfect meal for soccer nights and also great as left overs. A win win meal! Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
Since today is the first Thursday of the month, it’s our monthly 30 Minute Meal Thursday! My food blogger friends and I come together to share our easy, quick meals. Head over to each blog to see what they cooked up for you this month. You’ll love all their recipes!
