READY IN: 15mins


  • 1
    lb hamburger, browned
  • 1
    cup milk
  • 2
    cups water
  • 3
    (7 1/4 ounce) packages Kraft macaroni and cheese (for 2 of the macaroni & cheese boxes use only the cheese mix & save the macaroni for soup or somethi)
  • 2
    tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 4
    ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 12
    teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 14
    teaspoon garlic powder (to taste)


  • Brown the hamburger in a dutch oven or 12 inch skillet. When browned, drain off fat. Rinse the hamburger, to make it lower in fat, if desired. It doesn't hurt the taste at all.
  • Add the milk, butter, water, cheese package mixes, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add macaroni.
  • Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for about 7 minutes or until the macaroni is tender.
  • Add garlic powder and season with salt to your taste.
  • Add the cubed cream cheese and stir until melted and blended.
  • Serve immediately. Yummy.
