I used to buy a brand name hamburger helper but then they quit making that particular one and it was the only one my family and I liked. So one day I decided to try to duplicate it and see what happens. This recipe is the result and we love it almost as much as the original.

How to Make Homemade Hamburger Helper

Step-by-Step

  • 1Boil the water with the peas added (don't be tempted to add more peas as it's an over powering flavour & will ruin the end result). When the water comes to a boil add your package of Kraft Dinner and then follow the rest according to pkg directions.
  • 2After you've got your water pot started you can start browning your hamburger in a larger pot. While it's browning grate 1/2 a carrot and then add it to the hamburger. When cooked drain well and place back into the pot, set aside.
  • 3When your Kraft Dinner is prepared according to the package directions it's time to mix the two together. Let sit for about 3-5 minutes and stir a few times so the flavours can blend. It's ready to serve but if your family was like mine and had hungry men then you better make a double recipe and that required the use of a 5 qt. pot.
