Hamburger Helper Helper

Single parenting time and money efficiency needs inspired this one.

Instructions

  1. 1The following assumes that some day when you came home from grocery shopping, having purchased a 5 lb (or larger) chub of ground beef, you broke it into bits and placed it on a broiler pan and broiled until cooked well. The fat drained into the pan below through the slats. You then divided your cooked 5 lb chub into 5 roughly equal parts & packaged each into a zip lock sandwich bag and froze it.
  2. 2Need a meal in a dash? Put one of the frozen ground beef packages in a covered casserole dish with contents of a Hamburger Helper entree (or just about anything requiring a lb of ground beef) and water as needed.
  3. 3Hit the appropriate number of minutes on your microwave panel.
  4. 4Stir and enjoy!
