Quick and Easy Meal-Stroganoff-Style “Hamburger Helper”

Here is a homemade version of Hamburger Helper. It is much healthier than the boxed version. You can mix the dry ingredients ahead of time and store them in a ziploc bag in your pantry.

Stroganoff-Style “Hamburger Helper”

Dry ingredients:
  • 8 oz. dry egg noodles (I usually use whole wheat noodles)
  • 1 cup instant dry milk
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
Combine all the dry ingredients.
Additional ingredients:
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 4 oz. can mushrooms stems & pieces, undrained
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 to 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Brown ground beef in large skillet; drain. Add water, mushrooms, and your dry ingredients; stir to mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until water is absorbed and noodles are tender—about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream and Worcestershire sauce.
Serve with a tossed salad.
