Bacon Cheeseburger Skilet {One Pot}

While blog-hopping, I discovered this simple recipe that looks fabulous and that my family would love!  It can easily be doubled to serve my big family and so I wanted to save it here so that I can try it!

Bacon Cheeseburger Skilet {One Pot - Pasta too!}

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 (10 oz) can Rotel tomatoes (regular or mild)
  • 1/2 cup onion and chive cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz campanelle pasta (or penne)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

In a 12-inch oven safe skillet, cook ground beef until no longer pink. Drain fat. Add onion flakes,  broth, tomatoes, cream cheese, pasta, bacon, salt and pepper and stir.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover skillet. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until pasta is tender.  

Remove skillet from heat and stir in half of the cheese. Top with remaining cheese. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly.
