Homemade Hamburger Helper

First, I would like to welcome Monroe on a Budget readers. Paula at Monroe on a Budget had a post letting readers know the Henry Ford Museum has a  free family day on February 16Th. Thanks to Target. I have made my plans and that’s where my family will be on Monday. I thank Paula for her heads up! If you haven’t checked out her site yet, I encourage you to do so. She always gives me the inside scoop!

Next, I have been looking for frugal meals and tonight I found one and couldn’t wait to share.

Homemade Hamburger Helper

2 Cups nonfat dry milk                                                         1 Cup corn starch

¼ C. beef bouillon powder                                                 2 T. Onion flakes

1 t. dried basil                                                                           1 t. dried thyme

1 t. black pepper                                                                      2 T. dried Parsley

1 T. garlic powder

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.


When ready to use: Chili Mac: 1 pound ground beef, browned and drained (you could also use turkey)

1 C. water

½ C. macaroni noodles (uncooked)

2 Cans chopped tomatoes

1T. chili powder

½ C. hamburger helper mix

Combine all ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes or until noodles are tender.

We served with rice and it was wonderful, Cheap and Frugal!
