Crazy Hamburg Meal


This Crazy Hamburg Meal is Stupidly Easy with Just Enough Flavor! I made it up one day for lunch out of leftovers that I had! I never thought it would be a hit! 🤣 If I read this recipe my thoughts would have been – this is simple with odd ingredients and it sounds very bland BUT the strange thing is the flavors meld well and it actually has a comfort food type taste that my family loves! ADDED NOTE: My son loves it topped his with sour cream!

3 Cups Macaroni
2lbs. Hamburger
3 Cans Kidney Beans
Garlic Salt
Dried Minced Onions
1/4C. Butter
3-4 Tablespoons Beef Base

Add 4 Cups water to a large stockpot and 3-4 tablespoons of beef base. Bring to a boil and add 3 cups macaroni – boil 5 minutes – stirring occasionally. When I drain my macaroni – I save the broth and place it in a measuring container to use later. Set Macaroni aside for later too.

In the same stockpot – place hamburger – season with garlic salt, pepper and dried onions Brown hamburger – When the hamburger is browned – drain off excess grease. Return hamburger to the stove add in about 2 cups of the broth. Add in Kidney beans and butter bring to a boiling stirring occasionally- once it reaches a boil reduce heat to a simmer and add in macaroni – stir to combine – if it’s dry extra broth can be added!

NOTE ON BEEF BASE – This is a taste thing! I know it’s not good but I tend to like salty things! So you use your own judgment on how much base you add to your water!
