“I couldn't help but post this recipe. It really does taste like a cheeseburger! My mom made this once for my brothers and I when we were little. I remember loving the flavor of it. Just the other day out of nowhere I was craving this dish. I did an internet search and found it at backofthebox.com, which is basically a recipe site that has recipes found on the back of boxes. This is a Kraft recipe and the blending of these basic ingredients makes the most delicious macaroni and cheese. I like it because it's hearty and includes beef. The velveeta makes it incredibly creamy and the ketchup adds a hint of sweetness. I prefer to use the big macaroni but any size will do. Mmmmmmm so good! I like to serve steamed veggies on the side.”
