  • 4-8 cups whole milk (he added 6C in 1 pictured)(can add more milk if you like it thinner)
  • Opt: 1 beef bullion cube per cup of milk (he didn't add any in the 1 pictured. Its in the recipe but we got put on lower sodium diets so he didnt add it and it turned out great without it!)

  • 1 6-8 oz parmesan shredded
  • 24 oz small curd whole milk cottage cheese

DIRECTIONS
  1. Lightly brown ground beef in a couple spoons of water and strain
