Homemade Hamburger Helper that is just as easy as the boxed stuff, but tastes way better and is way better for you!
This is probably one of my kids most favorite meals. I mean they could eat this for breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner. Along with pancakes, pizza and pb&j. My kids are normal right??
I have never been a fan of the boxed stuff, it’s too salty and it’s full of ingredients I didn’t even know existed. I hate buying things that have an ingredient list full of unpronounceables (is that even a word???).
Honestly, this homemade version is easy and it’s quick. Sure you may have to open a few extra things or chop a few extra veggies. But I’m telling ya it is so worth it!
It takes 25-30 minutes to make this so it’s a great weeknight meal. Add a tossed salad or some steamed veggies and you have a well rounded meal.
Have picky eaters that need to eat more vegetables? Chop some zucchini up really small and add to the hamburger helper. Or add in some frozen peas, finely chopped carrot, whatever you have on hand that you need to disguise. I do this all the time with my kids and they hardly notice, especially if the veggies are the same color as the rest of the dish. Complete camouflage and I love it!!
My husband even loves this homemade hamburger helper!! I love that I can sneak in some vegetables for him to eat as well. Shhhh, don’t tell him! 😉 So, if you are in need of some dinner inspo…. you must give this recipe a try. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s a one pot meal…..it doesn’t get much better than that!!
