Thanks to Miranda Sims of West Point, Nebraska, for submitting this recipe! 


  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 1 onion chopped or 3 tbsp dried onion
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock (just shy less than a full can but if you use the whole can that’s fine too)
  • 1- 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 2 cups dried macaroni noodles or any other noodle
  • 1- 8 oz brick cheddar cheese, shredded


  • Cook meat, onion, and garlic until no longer pink in a 12-inch deep skillet. Drain. Return to pan. Add salt, pepper, milk, beef stock, tomato sauce, and noodles. Bring to a boil then put on low/simmer and cover pan for 15 minutes. Occasionally stirring to prevent noodles from sticking. After 15 minutes it’ll become thickened and then add cheese. Stir until melted! Ready to serve.
