Canadian Beef has partnered with Hamburger Helper! Makes sense! When I think beef, I think of hamburger/ground beef. While Hubby loves his steaks and roasts, to me, hamburger is the most versatile. I use ground beef in so many recipes! You can make meatloaf, stuffed peppers, cabbage rolls, casseroles, lasagna, chili, spaghetti sauce, Tourtière, Shepherd’s Pie…the list goes on and on!
I have a confession. My 4 year old has never had Hamburger Helper. I make pretty much everything from scratch. This said, I was in a rush and had a meeting to get to. After school is super busy, and Hubby had to get Little One fed when she got off the bus and rush her to ballet. Guess what he fed her?
Hubby made the HH lasagna with a salad. He said it was super fast to make and tasted good. The thing is, this is an incredible novelty for my husband too. Having grown up on his mom’s home cooking, he has never had HH either! It was a first for both him and Little One!
The Hamburger Helper definitely came in handy for Hubby. He and Little One didn’t have much time to eat since they had to rush to ballet soon after!
Since we’re talking beef, in case you hadn’t already noticed, the Canadian Beef blog already features Joyce’s blog post on how this product is helping her teach her son to cook. Sure, boxed products get a bad rap sometimes. These are great ways to show how you can make meals for the family with the use of HH products that help make life a little easier.
