Homemade Hamburger Helper

I’ve never like stuff in a box, it creeps me out. Not only that after we found out Fred had diabetes’s I was forced to learn about all that stuff on the back of the box being listed I ingredients. I’ve always been one for healthy stuff, but after diving into the whole break down of what stuff is made of, you won’t ever find a box of anything pre-made in this house. Ever! Call me a health nut, I don’t care, .If I can figure out how to make it myself I will. There’s nothing greater than being able to list everything in dinner and be able to say I made it myself. Huge pride in being able to teach my kids the benefit of making things themselves.
This is for Homemade Hamburger helper came from Chicken’s in the Road.  Everything in your pantry makes it, I bet everyone has this stuff right now. Go look, I dare you! Ok you may not have beef in the pantry but still, I bet you have all the other stuff.

1 pound ground beef
1 cup hot water
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Mix up the , starch, chili,garlic,salt sugar & paprika (I added pepper, and some minced onion in there) That’s your sauce mix!

Ready for the simple steps?

Brown ground beef in a large skillet; drain. Add water, add milk, pasta & your own sauce mix. Hard I know, but keep it up dinner is going to appear before your eyes! Bring to a boil, cover & simmer until pasta is tender. about 12-15 minutes. Stir it occasionally. In the last few minutes of cooking stir in cheese. Cover again & cook for the last few minutes. When pasta is tender & cheese melted turn off but let stand uncovered, it’ll thicken. I threw in broccoli, peas would work too, or any veggies you’ve got on hand!

Instead of reaching for a box, reach for your own pre-measured stuff when you need a quick dinner. We won’t have this very often, it tasted great, but we can’t do pasta often. It’s great for a fast dinner!!

    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of WordPress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
