How to make it

  • Brown and drain the ground beef.
  • Stir in the dry mix, then add 2 cups hot water and 2 cups noodles. You can add more or less water and noodles, proportionately, depending on much you need to stretch that pound of beef.
  • Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer, cover, and cook until noodles are tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Cheeseburger skillet: add 1 cup dehydrated cheese with the dry mix. Or cook as above, then stir in 2 cups grated Cheddar or Colby cheese before serving.
  • Stroganoff: add a bit of 1/2 tsp of onion powder and 1/2 tsp celery salt with the dry mix. Stir in a 1/2 cup fresh or canned mushrooms. After cooking noodles, stir in 1/4 cup sour cream just before serving.
  • Chili: Add one 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, 1 Tbs chili powder.
  • Potato variation: Instead of macaroni, add 2-3 cups very thinly sliced potatoes. Simmer 20-30 minutes until potatoes are tender. Uncover and simmer until liquid has evaporated.

    I made your Hamburger Helper tonight, and my family no longer wants anymore box stuff! It was very tasty. As we say here in N. Carolina-one recipe makes enough for a "corn shuckin'",so everyone can get full.I made a a tossed salad, and that was our meal. Thanx....
