Sometimes, we are all just in need of a quick, easy, and delicious meal. My homemade hamburger helper recipe is just what you need! Of course it’s delicious, but you can really make it in under 20 minutes! Now how’s THAT for a quick and easy meal? Do I know know what hamburger helper tastes like? Unfortunately (or fortunately), no. I haven’t checked their ingredients as of recent; however, the last time I checked they had yellow food color in it…and I’m allergic to food colors (red and yellow).
Besides being quick, easy, and delicious…this is one of those recipes that I call a “Super Comfort Food”. It helps bring back nostalgic memories, and gives your palate a great big hug! Take a look a see how easy it is! Just an FYI, you can easily turn this into a vegetarian dish by using soy protein crumbles!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and my many others that I share!
