My Version of an easy Macaroni and Cheese dish. You can do this varried however you like really, this is really made to my tastes, but it would be easy to change spices/ammounts/etc :)

Very yummy! The nice thing is that - unlike a hamburger helper type dish, which this resembles - you control the stuff that goes into it. I did some changes: used about double the onion, added 1 stalk of chopped celery, double garlic powder, subbed 1 heaping T. real bacon bits, skipped the butter. for PAC spring 2010

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook Macaroni in boiling water according to directions on the box.
  2. Meanwhile, brown the hamburger, onion, and bacon in a skillet until everything is nicely browned and cooked through.
  3. Add the packet of cheese from the Macaroni box, seasonings, ketchup, and butter to the hamburger, and simmer over low heat, stirring often.
  4. When macaroni is done, drain and add to the hamburger and cheese mixture, stiring until evenly coated and heated through.
  5. Serve and Enjoy! You could also try adding some veggies in if you like, but I usually serve them on the side.
