This month has been crazy for our family. Emily has been playing soccer for her middle school and is arriving home around 4:45 p.m. every night. If she has a game, it might be even later. Scott and Brad just started up their soccer season and are gone every Tuesday and Thursday for practice!
We try having dinner together but lately we are having to stagger our dinners. A few weeks ago, I received several boxes of Betty Crocker Chicken Helper and received rave reviews from everyone. This week, I received two boxes of Hamburger Helper.
Last night was one of those nights we were all home. Emily had a game earlier and Brad had been home sick with that bad cold. I made up the Cheeseburger Macaroni according to the directions on the box. We had some biscuits in the fridge so I thought I would bake them on top (keeping dinner warm until Scott and Emily made it home). It was delicious!
Be sure to make this in an oven safe pan. The macaroni crisped up perfectly around the edges and was just as moist as making it on the stovetop. Yum! It fed our family of 4, with leftovers for lunch. Again, I got rave reviews.
In the past, I steered clear of casseroles as my family just haven’t been fans…until now…they love Hamburger Helper! I also am a fan, as 1 cup only has 320 calories! I can enjoy a delicious meal with enough calories to enjoy a roll and salad along side.
