I really liked this recipe. I thought it had a great BBQ taste. I used Kraft Honey Hickory BBQ sauce. I also used Baco's in place of the bacon. I got it from Tops courtesy of Hamburger Helper.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cups hot water
- 1 cup milk
- 6 ounces betty crocker Hamburger Helper cheeseburger macaroni
- 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce
- 1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 lb bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
- In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
- Stir in hot water, milk, uncooked pasta, sauce mix and barbecue sauce. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
- Reduce heat; cover and simmer 13-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and uncover (sauce will thicken as it stands).
- Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Sprinkle with additional chopped onion if desired.
- Test Kitchen Tip: No time to cook bacon use 3 tablespoons betty crocker baco's bacon flavor bits or chips instead of real bacon.
I made this for the Camera-less Chef game on 8/23/07.I've made plenty of Hamburger Helper in my life, but this is the first time that I've ever put BBQ sauce and bacon in it.And let me tell you it's a great addition :).My SO thought it needed some salt and pepper,but I really liked it the way it was.This will be made again,thank you for posting."Keep Smiling :)"
