A Meal I Can ‘Cook’ (Or Prepare) From Memory


I had a couple of people ask me on Facebook to share the cheeseburger mac recipe my wife and I make. We got it off the back of a shells and cheese box but our version of it varies slightly from the original. Since I’m all about sharing that is below.

I was curious to see if I could write out the recipe from memory or if I would have to look it up. Turns out I did have it memorized! I double checked it against the original but I was surprised to actually remember how to make it. Along with my spaghetti recipe, that makes two meals I can make from memory that are sort of cooking.

Last week we were talking about the difference between ‘cooking’ food and ‘preparing’ it. I’m not sure which this is. I don’t measure the ingredients in the recipe, I just throw them together and estimate the amounts. Since this is easy and the cheese sauce is not from scratch, I’m going to call it ‘preparing’ and not ‘cooking.’ You can call it whatever you want, but if the only thing you’ve cooked before this is a Pop-Tart, go ahead and call it ‘cooking.’

  • 1 Box of Velveeta Shells and Cheese or Kraft Deluxe Mac and Cheese
  • 1 pound of hamburger
  • 2 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1/2 TBSP onion powder
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 TBSP of mustard
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Brown the hamburger. Add macaroni, milk, onion powder, ketchup and mustard. Bring to boil then turn down to low heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until macaroni is cooked. Add packet of cheese sauce and sour cream and stir.

How many recipes can you make from memory? Comment below.
