Hamburger Gravy with Creamy Garlic Chive Pasta

I might have made this during the height of summer for you all, but at its core this is such a fall and winter meal. Hearty, warm, filling, and easy to throw together, this one is perfect for a cold night where you want something comforting and homey. It is also fairly budget-friendly with a lot of ingredients that you probably already have on hand, and some of my secret weapons that help make many of my recipes pretty amazing.

I put this solidy alongside recipes like our Traeger Pot Roast, Prime Rib Beef Barly Soup, and Chicken Marsala on the “comfort food scale”. Stuff you’d make on a weekend or for company when you want to show off a little but also don’t want to be standing over the stove for hours.

You can serve this with some corn on the side or even mixed into the whole ordeal if that’s your think, or if you want something more fresh and green, a salad with a nice Greek Vinaigrette would go a long way towards breaking up the creamy, beefy bites you’re about to enjoy.

Is this dish a little extra? Sure. Do we care? Not even a little bit.

Hamburger Gravy with Garlic Chive Noodles FAQ

What’s the best way to store and reheat the leftovers?

I like to keep the leftovers separate and reheat them separately in the microwave before serving leftovers. They keep well for 2-3 days in the fridge, and make a great make-ahead lunch to pop in the microwave.

Can this dish be made in advance?

Sure! But if you’re planning on making it ahead for a reheat I’d plan on purposely undercooking the noodles by a minute or two to keep them from getting too mushy. You could put the hamburger gravy in one half of a preheated 9×13″ pan and the noodles in the other side, cover it with foil, and transport them to your potluck. A Casserole Crock Pot would also do really well for this.

This dish would be great to bring over to a friend or family’s house too if they just had a baby, if someone is sick, or if you just want to bless them with a hearty and delicious meal.

A diced-up onion would be great to toss in along with the ground beef. I would’ve, but I was out of onion when I whipped this up.

Don’t have Johnny’s Au Jus Powder? You can sub in regular beef broth instead.

Can’t find the garlic chive cream cheese? You can make your own with some fresh chives and garlic powder. I really like the Toasted Garlic Granules from Spiceology.
