Cheeseburger Macaroni Skillet!


This "Cheeseburger Macaroni Skillet" is one of those recipes you only have to use one skillet to make, so clean up is a breeze!  This is like a from scratch Hamburger Helper, but it tastes so much better!   If you are feeding big appetites on a budget, this is a winner, because it make a huge amount and it's very filling!   It's just good old comfort food.  Here is what you will need:

1  lb. ground chuck
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
8 oz. elbow macaroni, uncooked
3 cups milk
8 oz. Velveeta cheese, cubed
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

In a large oven proof skillet, brown the ground chuck and diced onion.  Season with the seasoned salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.   Stir in the uncooked macaroni, milk, and Velveeta cheese cubes.  Bring to a low boil, reduce heat to simmer, and simmer uncovered for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the macaroni is tender and the cheese has melted.   Turn the heat off and stir in the sour cream until it is all incorporated.  It's a good idea to temper the sour cream by stirring a little of the hot mixture into it until it is warmed up, that way it doesn't break when you add it. 

Sprinkle the top with the 2 cups cheddar cheese.  Place in a 375 degree oven for about 15 -20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.  Serve with a salad and bread and dinner is done!
