Thanks for stopping in today .
I'm gonna do a quick hamburger mac and cheese dish and it'll only be like four ingredients plus a few seasonings .
So let's get cooking real quick .
Here's my ingredients .
A pound of 93% lean 7% fat ground beef .
And I'm gonna use um just regular elbow macaroni and I'm gonna boil that over here .
Um I can't decide if I should use a cup or two cups .
So I'll just split the difference and boil a cup and a half and we'll see how that comes out .
Ok , for cheese , I'm gonna use Velveeta .
Um What I like about the Velveeta is it melts real well ?
And I can get a little eight ounce box of this at the grocery outlet rice shop for 99 cents and it doesn't have to be refrigerated .
So that keeps in the cupboard until I'm ready to use it , which is nice .
And then we may have to add just a little bit of milk to that , to thin it out a little bit while I'm waiting for the water to boil for my noodles .
May as well get the ground beef browning up over here while the noodles , noodles are boiling over here .
Let's season the ground beef a little bit , just a little bit of salt .
Not too much .
You can always add more if it needs more at the end and a little bit of onion powder , which is pretty good and just a little bit of pepper .
And um , we'll just let that brown and then we'll add the cheese .
The noodles are almost done .
The hamburger is browning up nicely here .
And one reason I always buy the lean ground beef is because I don't have to drain it .
It's so lean .
There's not really enough fat to have to bother draining off .
So it's a little bit more expensive , but it's easier to use .
And uh , you're not paying for a bunch of fat that you have to pour off either .
My noodles are draining in the sink and my hamburger is all browned up .
So I'm just gonna start crumbling in this Velveeta cheese and I'm just gonna put this whole eight ounce uh package in there .
Have the burner turned way down low for this because I don't want the cheese to burn .
And I'm gonna just add in a little bit of milk to just thin it out just a little bit .
You just do a little bit of time .
This is looking really good .
All the cheese is melted .
I've just been adding in a little milk at a time to get the consistency that I want .
I don't know how much I added and maybe half a cup or three quarters of a cup .
I don't really know .
I just kept pouring until I looked at like the right consistency to me .
Now , I guess we can start adding some of these noodles into it .
They got hard from sitting there and sing .
I don't know if it'll , if we'll need all of these or not .
I'm just gonna um stir in a few at a time like this .
And when it looks like enough , I'll stop adding .
I have a little leftover noodles .
That's ok .
This looks good to me .
I didn't add all the noodles .
There's still about that much left .
I probably could , could have just cooked one cup of noodles and it had been fine .
This still looks a little bit runny but the noodles will start soaking up all that cheese and it'll thicken up .
So um probably about one cup of noodles would have been just right .
So there's how it looks all finished up .
Makes a nice quick and easy meal and it tastes good .
I know because I just burned my tongue tasting it .
