lean ground beef
processed American cheese
I added a slight twist to the original recipe and I got rave reviews for the dish! I used a packet of Taco Seasoning on the ground beef, used monteray jack and colby cheeses instead of american, and crumbled nacho cheese flavoured doritos on the top of it. Nearly everyone in my family helped themselves to seconds!!!
Not my favorite recipes I used egg noodles instead.
Great recipe! Modifications that I made: 1 teaspoon of "Taco Seasoning 1" and used 1/4 cup of cheddar and 1/4 cup monterrey Jack cheese instead of the American slices. Since I was out of milk, I used 1/3 cup light sour cream instead. My husband loves this one!
Great recipe for people who surf the net too long and find they don't have much time left to get the dinner on! It was easy; had all ingredients; tasty and filling and best of all the kids loved it! I have added this to my recipe box.
One of my favorites now-
One little tip: I've found if you use generic soy sauce- follow the recipe; however, if you use the higher quality stuff you may want to use a little less-
I've made this recipe with wheat pasta, lean ground beef, skim milk, and fat-free Kraft Singles which turned it into a great low-fat dinner too!
Just got done eating this for dinner and my husband and I both agree that it is very tasty. I added some Velveeta cheese and a little bit of leftover shredded sharp cheddar, and left out maybe one or two of the American cheese slices. What's weird is my husband and I both really like Hamburger Helper but I won't buy it anymore because of the trans fat in it (I try to avoid most foods with hyrdogenated oils). So this, to us, was like Hamburger Helper, only better. Thanks for the easy, quick, and yummy recipe!
My family LOVED this. We used 1lb of ground beef instead of 1/2 and used half cheddar cheese and half American cheese. YUMMY!!
My family just got done eating this for dinner. It was fabulous!! I changed a few things like more meat and pasta, less soy sauce, I add taco seasoning and used monterey jack and colby cheese. I also used garlic and onion powder. I have two very picky step children and they loved this meal!! Thanks for the great recipe!!
