What is the recipe for hamburger helper-type cheeseburger macaroni?
I make this fairly often. I cook and drain the noodles while I brown the ground beef. It's best to use a soft cheese such as Velveeta. When the noodles and meat are cooked and drained, I mix them together and add lots of the cheese (don't over-do.) I place it back on the burner on very low heat and stir occasionally until the cheese is melted. I also sometimes cook chopped onions with the meat as it cooks, or add a packet of onion soup mix or dried onion flakes after I mix it all together. Salt and pepper to taste and remove from heat when the cheese is melted and combined with the other ingredients well.

Asked in Recipes, Lamb and Mutton
What sauce do you serve with lamb?
I know two great really simple accompaniments to plain lamb. For a roasted leg of lamb, if you didn't put anything on it while it was cooking, serve it with this sauce: get apple jelly if it's still around: it's a transparent light green. It may come with a mint flavor. If it doesn't, add some mint flavoring or leaves to it. I've seen other sauce recipes using pineapple or oranges, and they usually include mint. For a nice lamb chop topping, broil the chops till almost done. Make a paste of butter and Parmesan cheese and spread thickly over the top surface. Finish broiling. Joan P.
A recipe which a flour dredger is used?
I use a dredger all the time to make gravies and sauces. It allows you to lightly scatter the flour or whatever thickener you are using sparcely over your drippings. I use flour to thicken white gravies and sauces such as cheese sauces. I use cornstarch mixed in a cold liquid first for making brown gravies.
