Hamburger Helper....make your own.

Hamburger Helper
Brown one pound (more or less) of ground beef in a skillet.

Stir in 2 cups pasta or 1 cup rice or 2 cups sliced potatoes (dried is fine) and 2 cups water (use one cup if using fresh potatoes), 1/4 cup butter or margarine, and one of the sauce mixes below.

Pizza Spins

Use wheel shaped pasta, one can tomato sauce and 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning or 2 tablespoons of the following mixture.

1/4 cup crushed basil
1/4 cup ground oregano
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1/2 cup parsley

Cheeseburger Macaroni

Use macaroni and 1/4 cup of this mixture.

4 1/2 cups dehydrated cheese
2 2/3 tablespoons powdered milk
2 2/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons onion powder

Stroganoff

Use noodles or potatoes and 1/3 cup of the following mixture. Stir in 1/4 cup sour cream just before serving. (1/4 cup fresh or canned mushrooms may be used instead of dried, but put them in when you cook, not when preparing the mix for storage.)

4 cups powdered milk
4 cups flour
2 cups minced onion
1 cup beef bouillon
1/4 cup onion powder
4 cups dried mushrooms
2 tablespoons celery salt
