As I type this in I'm thinking that this was an easy way to use leftovers, or a quickie recipe. I like to play in my kitchen, cooking being one of my passions, so sometimes I write down recipes or ingredient lists that look good and then experiment. This recipe is for a hamburger skillet meal.
Ingredients I have listed:
- 1 lb ground beef
- 3 c. macaroni--I'm going to assume that this is cooked pasta, any type I think would work
- 2 TBSP flour
- thyme--going to say 1/4 tsp to start
- 1/2 c. water
I'm always looking for meals such as this, a few ingredients, 1 pan, good food. I'm a big fan of Hamburger Helper, but in trying to save money I am looking for lower cost options.
***Just a personal note: I spent 23 years in the food service industry in various capacities. Having been interested in cooking since I was a child it not unusual for me to just write down ingredients or seasoning combinations to experiment with. Al tho my range of experience runs the gamut I like food that is simple and easy to prepare; it also has to freeze and reheat well.
