California burger flavors in an easy skillet dish.
Updated Aug 11, 2015

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 box Hamburger Helper™ cheeseburger macaroni
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup seasoned croutons
  • 4 slices American cheese, cut in half diagonally

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2
    Stir in milk, hot water, and uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Arrange tomato slices on top; sprinkle with croutons. Place 5 of the cheese halves around edge of skillet; place remaining cheese halves in center. Cover and cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand covered 5 minutes (cheese will continue to melt and sauce will thicken as it stands).
