As a mom, I absolutely ADORE one pot (or skillet) meals! They are convenient and super easy to clean up.

As a child, I loved all the variations of Hamburger Helper…but today the frightening ingredient list means even withOUT allergies, I would not choose to feed those boxes to my family.

So how to make this a REAL FOOD meal?

Come with me, and I will show you an easy way to make every kiddo happy with a yummy dinner!

  1. Skillet meals are our friends per sure! Did you already try to reheat leftovers in microwave?

    Great recipe! I am 6 months pregs and was CRAVING hamburger helper… I don’t know why. I never really would eat it before, but anyway… I love, love, love this dish. I did not want to consume the myriad of chemicals that come with the hamburger helper, so this was perfect. I made mine full gluten and with dairy, but I feel so much better that I did not eat that boxed stuff. Thanks!

  3. This recipe was a real winner tonight… I love hamburger helper but I get frustrated with any meal from a box – there’s always so much extra crap! I made mine with the ordered gluten-free pasta, lean ground chicken, almond milk, low fat cheddar cheese (chef’s discretion! I added an extra cup!!), mine finished up with some kick (sriracha!!) and a real cheese taste that the box stuff seemed to lack! I will definitely make this again…
