I don't recommend the Taco, Nacho or Three cheese HH in parts of Georgia where they cook with sulfur water. They should have a warning on the label.

You sound like a nice Mommy. By the way, try the Kraft mac & cheese with lean ground turkey and 1 T chile powder. If you split it 4 ways and serve it with broccoli (goes well with the cheese gooey-ness) you are actually making a pretty healthy meal. Some chopped tomato on top of the mac makes it more appealing and adds more nutrition.
That sounds quite yummy. I have to be careful around Mac and cheese. Once again, I will eat the entire box and fall asleep. When you eat starch, for some reason, you're body does not register "full". I just says more, more, more...

You know I did a casserole similar to your recipe with the exception, I didn't use the box mac & cheese. I browned the ground turkey and seasoned it with some diced onions, chile powder and other misc. seasonings; boiled elbows and then layered the elbows, meat mixture, shredded cheese, broccoli, and marinara sauce. It was great, definitely better than HH

BTW: Shake & Bake - oh NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only HH I like is the beef noodle. I only buy it once in a blue moon. Tuna Helper I won't buy - it's gross and I can make my own from scratch.

I love hamburger helper and make it maybe twice a month. I've yet to find it that cheap though.

I've only tried Hamburger Helper once and honestly, I can't stand it. I'd much rather make my own food from scratch.

You can nuke a couple of potatoes, and some frozen carrots, and brown some hamburger and mix it together with some spices & a jar or two of Heinz gravy and it is really good and you know what you are getting.

I LOVED Hamburger Helper as a kid. Yum. Now, not so much. My daughter, however, thinks it's great, and I have to explain to her why I won't buy it, AGAIN, every time we go to the grocery store. LOL!

We eat it about 2-4 times a year, for a treat for her. She adores Cheeseburger Macaroni. If I'm going to eat it, I'd prefer Chicken Helper. They used to have this Southwest Chicken flavor that wasn't bad at all, but I guess they got rid of it. I make my own version, though, and it's great.

I find anything with carbs make me so hungry the next day and that is loaded with carbs. I love it though, just don't eat it anymore.
