Hamburger Helper (dry mix)

Deb Crane Recipe

By Deb Crane songchef

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!

onion powder
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
sugar
1 Tbsp

dry noodles of your choice
WHAT TO ADD TO THE DRY MIX:
1 lb
ground beef
1 c

1 c
shredded cheddar cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
