My son goes through a kick where he wants Hamburger Helper. I have a very hard time buying it. It just doesnt seem right to me. So, I did some research and came up with a blend that comes close to the nasty store bought. You can add any spices to suite your liking. I make up these packages and store them in the cabinet then any time you want, just brown the hamburger and make it like the box mix. Saves alot of money too!
The recipe is for one mix so I usually increase all the ingredients to make 4 at a time or however many you want to store.
Mix the dry mix ingredients together. I mix it right in a zipper sandwich bag and then add the noodles. Keep these packets in the cabinet for later use.
When you are ready to make the Hamburger Helper:
Brown one pound of beef and drain. Put it back in the pan and add the hot water and milk. Add your dry mix. Bring to a boil, stirring to blend, and cover and let it simmer for about 12 minutes or until noodles are cooked. Uncover, add your shredded cheese and stir until cheese melts.
The ingredients can be tweaked to your liking. More cheese, more garlic,add pepper what ever you desire.
