**MODIFIED - I doubled the amount of ground beef when making this for a party. I can see why Shelby Jo said that the cheese would have been overpowering with the original recipe! It was just right with the 2 pounds.** This is actually called 'All-American Cheeseburgers' from Gooseberry Patch's "Super-Fast Slow Cooking Cookbook". I didn't want you to think that you are making actual cheeseburgers, so I changed the name for Zaar. I see no reason why you couldn't use low fat ingredients. Enjoy!
- 2 lbs ground beef, browned and drained (used to be 1 pound)
- 3 tablespoons catsup
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 2 cups Velveeta cheese, cubed
- 10 hamburger buns or 20 mini hamburger buns, split
- Place ground beef in a slow cooker; add catsup and mustard, mixing well. Top with cubed cheese.
- Cover and cook on low setting for 3 to 4 hours.
- Stir beef mixture gently; spoon onto buns.
My kids and husband love this recipe so much! I try to make it at least once a month and each time I make it, I use a different cheese so far cheddar and queso blanco seem to be the top favorites for our family! Anything I have changed up to add some extra flavor is using dry/ground mustard instead of plain mustard and onion burger buns instead of plain. Add a side of Arby's curly fries courtesy of Walmart frozen section and you have a award winning meal with my family!
This was such an easy meal, economical too! I really enjoyed this mix of a hanburger/sloppy joe. The cheese did over power things a bit though, so I'd add more ketchup and mustard next time to make those flavors come through. Thanks for posting! Made for Theirs, Yours, & Mine Photo Tag.
