Hamburger helper was one of my favorite dinners when I was a kid! I would get super excited on those nights! My little brother was super picky and he wouldn’t eat it for the longest, then I started making it and adding a few ingredients and he actually started requesting it. Funny how that works!
Jazzing it up and making it more your own is super easy and it makes dinner far less stressful! Honestly, figuring out what to fix for dinner drives me insane sometimes. I love that it takes the stress out of dinner, making it far easier to sit and enjoy your family during dinner. Personally, I get so worked up cooking sometimes I can’t sit down and relax!
One of the awesome things about it is that you can use it as a base and add so much to it, making it special to the likes of your family!
