Homemade Hamburger Helper
You can try making your own version of hamburger helper.
- 1 pound of ground beef
- 1 packet of Lipton beefy onion soup mix
- 4 1/2 cups of water
- 1 pound of bow tie pasta
- 1 can of mushroom soup (if you want)
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup sour cream
Brown the ground beef and then drain off fat in a large skillet that has a lid. Add the onion soup mix and water and mushroom soup mix (if you want). Mix well and bring to a boil. Add the Bow Tie pasta and bring back to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium high and cover. Cook for 10-12 minutes. Take off heat and gently stir in the sour cream. Enjoy this quick and delicious version and you won’t go back to the box.
If you would like to make more of a meal out of this, add some fresh broccoli or other vegetables. If you want a cheesy dish use a cheese instead of the sour cream. Throw in some diced tomatoes and really enjoy something nice! Thanks to Maclll for sharing this recipe.Print Recipe
