My last post was about how to substitute items you may already have to make Hamburger Helper-like meals. If you’re lucky enough to be stocked up on the real Hamburger Helper, all you need is some ways to jazz it up a little. Here are some flavorful ideas to change up this family favorite.
Stuff to stir-in
The following ingredients are great to stir in while the Hamburger Helper is still cooking.
Stuff to sprinkle on top
These items are best added after the Hamburger Helper is already on the plates. It not only looks nice but gives each family member a chance to personalize their own meal.
Crushed tortilla chips
Crushed potato chips
French fried onions
Chopped tomato (if you prefer it fresh)
Salsa (if you prefer it cold)
Sour cream (if you prefer it cold)
