“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. I have been making this for my family for years. No more boxed mac and cheese for me! Due to the ease of prep and savory taste, I make this skillet dish often. My family refers to it as "that tasty, cheesy hamburger macaroni thingy" A nice, big skillet full makes for great leftovers too! What's not to love!?”
