Here's a dinner my family enjoyed, with no complaints! It's a take off the boxed dinners (we once ate many years ago) and now I can make it gluten free so I can still have that comfort food when I crave it. I love that this comes together in no time and that it cooks all in one skillet. Check it out in motion!
Cheesy Burger Macaroni Skillet Dish
adapted from Spend with Pennies
1 lb lean ground beef 1 onion, diced
1 TBL chopped garlic
1 cup beef broth
2 cups milk
1½ cups uncooked (gluten free) elbow macaroni noodles
3/4 cup frozen peas (optional)
1 TBL cornstarch
1 teaspoon each garlic powder, sugar and paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
1 3/4 cups sharp cheddar cheese
In a small bowl combine cornstarch, garlic powder, sugar, pepper, salt and paprika. Set aside.
Brown ground beef (I also S&P mine as it cooks), onion and chopped garlic in a large skillet until browned. Drain off fat. Add milk, broth, macaroni and peas to beef. Stir in cornstarch and spices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for 12 minutes or until noodles are cooked. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted.
