Hamburger Helper has gone through some major changes to their marketing and packaging in the past year. My family has always had at least three boxes in the pantry at all times. When you just get home from work and the kids are starving it is easy to brown some hamburger and follow the directions on a box. It literally takes about 20 minutes, and dinner is done. Plus it normally only uses one pan to cook the whole meal in!
Tonight we tried double cheeseburger macaroni. Now remember I have three kids, two of which are currently eating me out of house and home. So to make it stretch I added more noodles and water to the mix to make it stretch farther. I also added red pepper flakes, cumin (my new obsession) and oregano to spice it up. I think it turned out great. The kids loved it and there was even enough left over for my lunch tomorrow! I did make some rolls to go with the meal, because my favorite part is soaking up the leftover sauce with a piece of bread.
I don't think their actual recipes have changed, maybe just the marketing and packaging. But if it ain't broke, right.
