Out of curiosity - why not? I'm thinking of giving it a try. My DH grew up on HH and thinks it's some kind of culinary delight. I've never had it but all the artifical flavors, chemicals and colorings - don't personally think I could stomach it and definitely won't serve it to my kids. This recipe, however, sounds yummy. Like a happy medium. I'd probably try a little diced onion in it too.

Would appreciate your insight.

And sincere thanks to the OP for the recipe.

Saralee: My son says the second day (tonight) was "pretty good", and he would eat it again, but just not soon. Hubby suggested to freeze half for later. My thoughts - a little too plain, though it was seasoned properly. It just kind of felt like I was eating something off of the kids menu at a chain restaurant .

Not really for me, and I thought my teen son would like it more.

I've made beefaroni (that's what it's always been called in my life ) for years...we had it regularly as kids. It's so easy, I can't even imagine why anyone would bother with Hamburger Helper. Mine is much simpler than the OP's I think, but I've never tried to get fancy with it - we like it as is. 1 pound of browned ground beef, and add little tomato paste, lots of ketchup, a little Heinz 57, worstershire, salt, pepper...whatever tickles your fancy really. Cook 2 cups elbows, then mix into beef mixture. Add a little velveeta or cheddar, again, whatever you like...and mix it up, and dump into a casserole dish, and cover with sliced cheddar. Bake 30 at 350. Piece of cake.

LOL critics..... UGH


This dish is going deer/elk hunting to Colorado it has been requested by the hunting party. BTW tastes even better with a couple dashes of Tabasco or Pico Pica.

The recipe is easy and sounds tasty. I'd probably throw some onion in with the beef and arts it up with some herbs or chopped veg or something. That's the beauty of a recipe like this; you can do so many things with it.

It's always nice to see a recipe for real food! I think I would add some freshly chopped onions and garlic, though.
