I know there is a really simple recipe for making your own hamburger helper. Does anyone have it handy?
Homemade Hamburger Helper
By Deb in CO
Kitchenmixes.com has loads of recipes (dry) you can make yourself. Below is a mix for hamburger helper and it can be used for both stroganoff and chili mac.
I have a generic recipe for hamburger helper and one recipe to make from it.
Homemade Ground Beef Helper
Mix the ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Use as base mix for hamburger helpers.
Chili Tomato Mac
Brown 1 pound ground beef or turkey, drain off fat. Add 1 c. water, 1 and one half cups uncooked macaroni, 2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes, 1 Tbsp chili powder, and 1/2 cup of the "Helper Mix". Simmer covered about 20 minutes or until macaroni is tender. Serves about 4 persons.
Brown the meat, drain the fat, push to the sides of skillet. Brown the onion in the middle. Then combine meat and onion, add the wet ingredients, add some pasta and simmer until done. Top with grated cheese. I love tons of locatelli. (11/04/2005)
I like this:
Season ground beef and cook until done. Add the cooked noodles and the gravy mix, or premade gravy and the can of drained peas. Cook through and enjoy. (10/03/2006)

Nice site. I checked this out earlier, since I decided to make my own batch. I used the following which was available.
Just cook the first three like your normally would, mix 'em up and add the seasoning (3 tablespoons if you like to measure everything). I'm not sure if this seasoning is still being made, but I bought a bunch at a discount store I frequent. It's a blend of garlic, onion, red pepper and Italian seasoning
A few quick notes: 16 oz. pasta would've probably been a better choice, but I like a lot of meat. Also, a can of peas probably would've gone great with the mushroom gravy, but I didn't have any. I'll be trying this next time I make it. (10/13/2006)

If you are trying to feed a big family, I'd suggest getting some TVP, which is a soy based meat alternative that is very cheap. There are even brown flavored ones that look like beef. Use it plus your meat and you have and the expensive meat goes a lot further. https://www.usaemergencysupply.com/food_storage/texturized_vegetable_protein.htm (07/21/2008)
Cook noodles according to box. Brown seasoned ground beef with onion. Add beef stock and milk; stir in cheese packet from boxed dinner and cook on med. low heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Add the cooked and drained pasta and serve.
I call it Kevin Helper.
Take the beef and bullion cubes cook on high after 20 minutes, add noodles. Then take noodles and beef and put in square casserole pan. Then mix with cream of mushroom and shredded cheese. Cook for 23 minutes at 350 F. The best recipe; your family will love. (04/13/2009)
I received this from Campbell' Kitchen today.
Cheeseburger Pasta from Campbell's Kitchen
Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat. Stir the soups, water, and pasta in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 10 minutes or until the pasta is tender, stirring often.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with carrot and celery sticks with ranch dressing for dipping. For dessert serve store-bought brownies topped with vanilla ice cream.
