Ultra Cheesy Burger Skillet Casserole


This Cheeseburger Macaroni Skillet is one of the most requested meals in our family and the reasons are pretty obvious. It’s hearty, cheesy, savory and has all flavors of a cheeseburger.

In a large skillet, over medium-high heat add some cooking oil and cook bacon until crumbly. Set aside.

In the same skillet with half of the bacon grease (discard the rest) add more oil and cook the beef.

Add paprika, black pepper, and onion and cook until onion is translucent.

Add tomato sauce, broth, and dijon. Stir until all is combined. Add in dry pasta, close the lid and let it come to a boil.

Then, lower the heat, stir through and close the lid back again.

Cook for 15 minutes until the pasta is cooked. Stir again and add in cheddar, half of the bacon, and relish.

Stir through until cheese is melted and serve.  Garnish with the remaining crumbled bacon pieces. (optional step)
