  • ISO: Hamburger Helper Recipes
    Hi! I just came across a post for recipes using Rice-A-Roni. Is there any for Hamburger Helper? I know high in salt, etc., etc., but sometimes in a pinch I do fix it, but was wondering if there is a way to doctor it up so it's not so bad for us?

    How about making it homemade instead? It's just as easy!

    Bacon Cheeseburger (Stove-Top) Casserole

    *It is kind of like "glorified hamburger helper" but you can tell it is from scratch! It's also quick and easy :) This recipe will serve 8, so you may want to half it for a smaller family...however, you probably will wish you hadn't because you will want leftovers!

    1 lb uncooked pasta (rotini, rotelle, penne, small "or" medium shells, elbow) or 12 ounces egg noodles
    2 lbs lean ground beef
    1 lb bacon
    1 small onion, chopped fine or 2 tablespoons minced dried onions
    2 cans condensed tomato soup
    salt and pepper
    8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese

    8 servings

    Cook pasta in salted water (1 tsp. or so), drain, rinse and set aside.
    Cook bacon in microwave or frying pan until crisp and set aside.
    In a large skillet or deep fryer pan (I use a 12" diam. chicken fryer), brown ground beef and onion over medium heat.
    Sprinkle with lots of salt and pepper to taste. (I do this while my bacon is in the microwave and my pasta is cooking).
    Drain any grease from beef.
    Crumble bacon into beef and onion mixture.
    Add tomato soup and let simmer for 5 minutes.
    Add pasta and stir until coated and combined well.
    Sprinkle cheddar cheese over the top and cover.
    Simmer for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
    Serve right out of the pan.
    Enjoy!
