Cheeseburger macaroni is an easy to throw together family meal that is inspired by the iconic flavors of the classic cheeseburger.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 ¼ cup beef broth
- 2 cup milk
- ½ cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cups dry macaroni noodles
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (divided)
- 1 cup dill pickles (chopped or sliced)
- ½ medium onion (chopped)
Add beef into a saute pan and cook over medium heat until the beef is browned. Break it apart to crumble it while cooking.
Add cornstarch along with all seasonings, and mix with the beef, then add beef broth, milk, ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce to the saute pan and mix further to ensure the seasonings are incorporated.
Stir in macaroni noodles, cover, and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 12 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in half of the cheese with the beef and noodles, until melted. Then add pickles and onions. Top the dish with the remaining cheese and serve.
