One-Pot Cheeseburger Mac

There is one meal that my kids could literally eat every day, Macaroni and Cheese. As a busy mom, I often rely on the convenience of boxed hamburger meals. So when I was given the opportunity to partner with Produce for Kids I know I had to share their One-Pot Cheeseburger Mac recipe.


After trying this delicious  One-Pot Cheeseburger Mac recipe, you will never want to buy the boxed kind again. Everything still cooks in one pot for easy clean-up, and you’ll still get the same delicious meal in a much healthier way!  Recipe and photography provided Produce for Kids
