Hungry Harps Macaroni & Cheese

When I started throwing this dish together I had no intentions of blogging about it, but as the recipe started coming together in my head I knew I was going to have to share it. Be brave, try it. :) We were surprised by how tasty it was and there were no leftovers.

• 1 pound Ground Beef
• 1 box Macaroni & Cheese (Just the plain one, nothing fancy)
• ½ cup chopped Broccoli
• 1 ½ cups cheese, shredded (I used Pepper Jack and Colby, mixed)
• ¼ cup Italian Breadcrumbs
• ¼ cup Garlic Compound Butter
• 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
• 2 tablespoons minced Garlic
• 1 tablespoon Worcestshire Sauce
• 1 tablespoon Fresh Dill
• Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Brown ground beef with garlic, worcestshire sauce and salt & pepper. Drain
2. Make macaroni & cheese as directed on package, substituting the margarine with garlic compound butter
3. I used frozen broccoli, so at this point I sautéed the broccoli just long enough to have any extra water evaporate. Mix with beef and dill
4. Layer in 8x8 baking dish;
• Macaroni & cheese
• Beef mixture
• Half of cheese
• Half of breadcrumbs
• Repeat one more time, topping with parmesan cheese
5. Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top
6. Enjoy
