If you grew up in middle America in the 80’s or 90’s (maybe prior; not sure when it was launched) You probably had Hamburger Helper at least a few times. It was a regular at my house growing up. It was cheap, fast, easy, and foolproof. Enough so that it was one of the first things I started making for myself as an older kiddo. This recipe is free from those nasty additives, but full of the yumm. (and even has some veggies, added! Look at me mom!)
Ask anyone, and their recipe for this meal and their secret recipe is going to be different; which is part of the fun of tradition, amiright?
