♥ Bacon Cheeseburger Skillet Dinner
Bacon Cheeseburger Skillet Dinner
From Marie over at the English Kitchen who is always so kind to share her recipes with us."This is one of those great family style dishes that not only tastes delicious, but is also quick, easy and feeds a crowd. You can cut the quantities in half if you like, but I'd also like to add that it freezes very well and so it's one of those things you can have in the freezer, ready to whip out at a moment's notice!"
1 box (16 0z) uncooked pasta
2 pounds extra lean ground beef
1 pound of bacon
1 onion, peeled and minced
2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
2 cans of tomato soup
1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon mixed herbs (dried basil, oregano, parsley, marjoram)
2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove with and set aside to drain. Add the beef, onions and garlic to the drippings. Cook, stirring from time to time, until the beef is lightly browned and the vegetables are soft. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and the herbs. Crumble in the cooked bacon. Add the ketchup and tomato soup. Bring to the boil, then simmer while you cook the pasta.
Cook the pasta in lightly salted water according to the package directions until tender. Once tender, drain well and then stir into the beef mixture. Add 3/4 of the cheddar cheese and stir it in to melt, then sprinkle the remainder of the cheese on top and allow to melt. Serve right from the pan with lots of crusty bread and a tasty salad on the side.
