Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 8 ounces velveeta, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup cooked bacon crumbles
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 sandwich buns
  • Lettuce, tomato, sliced cheese, and pickles as garnish (optional)

Directions:

Cook beef and garlic over medium-high heat in a 12 inch skillet, approximately 8-10 minutes. The beef will continue to cook in the slow cooker, so don't worry if it comes out a bit under cooked. Crumble the beef while you cook to your liking. Drain the skillet of the oil.
