non that sounds pretty good. I have never even thought of mixing meat with mac and cheese. You just gae me an idea.

I see the recommendations for chili mac, which I'm sure is great, but I didn't want the "chili" component to really take over.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone!

Ironically, this was On the front page of MSN this morning as "Taste of Home's" most requested recipe.
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/cheeseburger-soup/

I don't make Mac 'n cheese often, but I always add a little onion powder and often add ham. But with ground beef - you were missing some sauteed diced onion.

I grew up eating mac 'n cheese with hamburger. I still love it. Sometimes Dad would put in cut up hot dogs (already boiled) instead of the hamburger. I still love that too.

Maybe I have not had a good version of this, but the ones I tasted, it seemed to be a waste of good lobster (covering up its taste).

Anyone who has not tried the King Ranch Chicken Mac 'n Cheese really should. I believe I got the recipe from Southern Living. Either that or Gardens and Guns magazine.

Mustard powder might work. I like the worcestershire sauce idea also. Both added to the meat when browning.
