Scrunchies, denim overalls, and chokers may be in again, but I’m bringing the food of the 90’s back with homemade hamburger helper! As a twin mom, tasks take a little longer, and become a little harder. So, I’m all about easy and quick recipes. This one is no different-another one of my minimal effort, delicious meals! I should also mention that it is so much better than the real thing, and it’s budget friendly!
A few tips for this recipe:
- Stir occasionally to prevent the noodles from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
- You can add more seasoning, if you’d like. My seasoning is a guideline, most of the time I eyeball it!

- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley

- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the ground beef. Drain the beef, if there is liquid, then add seasonings. Add the onion, and cook until translucent.
