Hamburger Macaroni from scratch!

12 12 2010

We made hamburger macaroni with fresh ingredients! Hamburger macaroni is very simple, but delicious! We really liked it, so we made hamburger macaroni a second time in no longer than two weeks :)

Here is the recipe we used –

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1-2 minced onions
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1/2 – 1 green pepper
  • 2 cups of uncooked macaroni
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbs. oregano
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation:

  1. Defrost ground beef.
  2. In a small pot, heat up boiling water and put in uncooked macaroni. Drain when done. You’ll be putting the cooked macaroni in later.
  3. Chop onions, garlic, green pepper, and tomatoes.
  4. In a pot/pan, brown the ground beef with garlic and onions. Drain fat.
  5. Add in green pepper, tomatoes, macaroni.
  6. Add some salt, pepper, and oregano to taste.
  7. Place heat on low for ~30 minutes.

Yummy and delicious! With a recipe as easy and delicious as the one above, who would want to buy Hamburger Helper ever again? :D
