Bachelor Mac & Cheese

On occasion, I will be out of town, having to run errands, or needing to work late. It’s times like these that my hubby gets to man the kitchen. He lovingly calls them his bachelor meals and as simple or as strange as they may sound, they get the job done. The kiddos even like the bachelor meals, which I can understand. Growing up my daddy could make exactly two things. One was fried potatoes and the other was grilled cheese, both heavy on the butter. I always looked forward to daddy cooking when mom was working late or out of town, because we would get his specialties.

What you’ll need:

A box of macaroni and cheese (the Loretta brand is my hubby’s favorite – the bigger boxes, not the boxes that are tall and slim)
A pound or so of hamburger meat
A “spoon” of butter

How to get your cooking on:

Boil your macaroni according to package instructions
While macaroni is boiling, cook your hamburger meat, drain, and set aside
Drain macaroni and put in mixing bowl
Add butter and cheese sauce to the macaroni and mix well
Add in hamburger meat and mix well

Divide into bowls and serve - or if you’re like some people, grab a spoon and dig into the mixing bowl
