Around 4'ish, I still wasn't sure what I was going to make with the thawed hamburger meat I'd set out for dinner. Thankfully, my sweet sister called and just happened to mention a recipe she tried last night and loved. I tweaked it a little and the kids devoured it tonight!
Brooke's version of homemade Hamburger Helper
1 box Annie's Homegrown Shells & Cheddar mac (on sale this week at Kroger for $1)
1/2 can 99% FF Cream of Mushroom soup
1/2 pack Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 lb lean hamburger
Brown hamburger and drain grease. Mix in cream of mushroom soup and onion soup mix. May need to add 1/4 c. water. Simmer on low for 5 minutes. At the same time, boil the Annie's mac shells for 8-10 minutes then add 1/4 c. milk and cheese packet. Combine mac & cheese with hamburger meat. Or serve separately. Delish!
*Chris isn't a fan of onion flavored dishes so this wasn't his favorite but the kids and I loved it!
**I think the hamburger mixture would also taste great over egg noodles.
