Happy Wednesday guys! We made it halfway through the week!
In case I forgot to mention it, I’m obsessed with bread and butter pickles and Velveeta cheese slices right now.
I mean, if that’s not the epitome of sophisticated taste buds, I don’t know what is.
But every morning, I have 2 eggs with a slice of Velveeta cheese and every afternoon, I have one of my burger salads with tons of pickles on it.
And more than once in the last month, we’ve had these Crockpot Cheeseburgers for dinner because Velveeta! And pickles!
Seriously, this recipe is so simple, so good, and the family loves it.
You just quickly brown some ground beef (you could definitely use turkey if you prefer!) and then transfer it to the crockpot, mix in some cheese, ketchup, and mustard, and let it cook for a few hours. The cheese melts and creates that texture that only Velveeta can make – you know what I’m talking about!
It’s the perfect quick and easy dinner or it would be great for football games. Just put it on some buns with more cheese and pickles and I promise it will be a hit!
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- salt and pepper
- 8 ounces Velveeta cheese cubed
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- buns for serving
- cheese slices for serving
- pickles for serving
In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add ground beef and diced onion and cook, breaking up the beef, until no pink remains and the onions are translucent. Add garlic and cook another 30 seconds, just until fragrant.
Transfer to the slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Stir in Velveeta, ketchup, and mustard.
Cover and cook on low for 3 - 4 hours, stirring about once an hour. Serve on buns with more cheese and pickles!
