I’m going to be honest, I haven’t had store-bought hamburger helper in years. When you start making more homemade dinners, you realize that many of the store bought mixes you buy at the store are just…yucky. If you are looking for the convenience of store bought mixes, then you will love this recipe. And your family will too!


Hamburger Helper Mix Recipe


  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 c. uncooked elbow macaroni


Combine all ingredients together and store in a quart sized ziploc bag or a pint sized mason jar. Mix will store for 6 months to a year.


To prepare, brown 1 lb. ground beef. Drain grease. Add ingredients in the jar to the hamburger, then add 1 c. water and 2 c. milk. Simmer until macaroni is fully cooked. Add grated cheese, if desired, a few minutes before serving.
