Homemade Hamburger Helper

My kids both eat Hamburger Helper.  They don't tend to eat much for dinner most nights, and we don't eat Hamburger Helper too often...I do try to make more homemade meals than processed, packaged meals.

I was really excited when I found a way to make homemade Hamburger Helper.  Pictured above is the Cheeseburger Macaroni.  You can find all sorts of different versions of homemade Hamburger Helper at Chickens in the Road.  I was pleased with the way it tasted, and the kids ate it.  And it was made with real cheese and spices, not powdered "cheese".  Success!

If you want this to be really quick every time you make it, you can cook your ground beef in advance and freeze it in zippered freezer bags, one pound at a time.  Of course, the spices and pasta can be measured in advance, too.

Let me know what you think!

What a wonderful idea!! I admit that most of our meals lately involve prepackaged processed food of some sort. Measuring out in advance and storing in ziploc bags is just brilliant! I will definitely have to rethink our meals. :)

That sounds great! I haven't had hamburger helper since college, but I love the idea of a homemade version.
