Hamburger helper is a life saver when its been a hectic day! Its super easy... Its cheap and only takes one pot.. and the kids love it. Lately I've been trying to eat more natural foods and trying to cut out all the processed stuff... so I set out to make a homemade version of this yummy, easy, and pocket book friendly meal!
1lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion
1/2 tsp Lawry's season salt
1/2 garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground mustard
dash of paprika
1/2 12oz bag of dumpling noodles
1/4 of a 16oz package of Velveeta ... I think it was the 16 oz package... Its not the smallest and not the largest....lol ( I realize this is processed but I knew this would be creamier than cheddar cheese)
1cup warm water
Start by preheating a skillet to medium high heat. While the pan is warming dice your onion up.
When the pan has heated throw in the hamburger meat and the onion. Saute until the meat is cooked through and there is no signs of red meat.
When your meat is done drain it on a plate lined with paper towel. **I skipped this step cause I use extra lean ground beef and typically there is nothing to drain off**
Now add your milk, water, noodles, seasons, and Velveeta.( I chopped my Velveeta block up into small cubes so it would melt easier)
Give it a good stir to combined the ingredients then plop a lid on it turn the heat down to medium and let it simmer.
Once it begins to boil turn the heat down to low and let the mixture thicken up.
I served my HH with a lovely garden salad and green beans!
