Cheeseburger Macaroni

Cheeseburger Macaroni

When we “don’t have anything to eat,” I scrounge up what I can from the fridge and pantry and just start putting things that can go together. This is very Filipino to just add whatever leftover ingredients you have and add it to what you’re making. I’ve been told this is how raisins have become part of certain dinner recipes and why Filipinos make ketchup out of bananas (bananas are plentiful, maybe tomatoes are not).

We got a 10-pack of boxed macaroni and cheese in the pantry from Sam’s Club “in case of emergency,” and we eat it when we run out of food and don’t want to go to the store. I like to mix it up since just the plain mac and cheese in a box isn’t that great unless you’re a kid, and it gets old pretty fast. Actually, our kid isn’t a fan of it, and it’s really surprising since I thought all kids did. She prefers Filipino food with lasagna as the exception.

Cheeseburger Macaroni:
– macaroni and cheese
– ground beef browned in onion soup mix
– shredded cheese
– tomato

It would’ve been even better if we had bacon. Next time.

  7. my husband LOVES Mac & Cheese… and only the Blue Box, Please!only one of my boys likes it though.You could add salsa and make it Taco Mac & Cheese!(*voting for your blog*)Thanks for the blog comment- I found your comment about 'better than worksheets' ironic, because the next day I had a headache and they got worksheets (and online links)- but they were Blood Spatter Forensic worksheets that required some analyzing evidence… so it wasn't all bad.
