Easy Cheeseburger Rice


I know it’s been a bit since I last updated, but I’m going to embrace the excuse that parents everywhere have used for decades: “But it was the holidays!” There, I feel better.

Today’s recipe is one I’ve made for years. It first appeared on the back of a Minute Rice box and I gave it a try, and though it was a hit with the kids, Mike wasn’t too crazy about it. That’s worked out well, though, as it’s become a meal the girls and I make when Mike’s out of town for work.

This can easily be chalked up to “trashy eats,” and I’m fine with that! It’s quick, easy, filling and cheap, and it doubles easily for leftovers.
