Homemade Hamburger Helper

My Nana (grandmother) was the queen of whipping up some pretty tasty dishes with whatever meat, veggie, or canned good that was available in the kitchen. She was definitely able to make something out of nothing and quickly for a hungry bunch! Of course this ability also fell upon my mother, who is the queen of stir-frying and skillets! She can whip up some awesome dishes just like my grandma. Since both of them were on a budget much like my own, I learned to take yesterday's leftovers and make them into a new, tasty meal for my family as well! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! 

First off, I admit it...I'm guilty! I used to love Hamburger Helper! I know it's an easy thing to grab at the grocery store when you are short on time to make dinner for your family, but cheaper isn't always better.

Here is a quick and easy recipe that I make at home in 30mins! This recipe is much like the Hamburger Helper recipes that include a ground meat and pasta.

We usually add a salad and some garlic bread on the side!
