Weekend Recipes - Homemade Hamburger Helper

Disclaimer:  I do not know what hamburger helper tastes like.  I don't think that I have ever had it before in my life.  But the recipe I am going to share is along the same concept and I couldn't come up with a better name for it (if you have one let me know!!).

Bruce got this recipe from his mom.  It is incredible easy, but also really hearty - we have it a lot when it is rainy and cold outside.  It is the perfect weeknight meal!!

Homemade Hamburger Helper

1 pound Hamburger
1 small White Onion, diced
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup White Rice, cooked according to package instructions

Sauté hamburger and onion, drain

Pour cream of mushroom over beef & onions, add a can of water
Stir, turn down heat and allow time for soup to thicken

Serve over rice

(We didn't when I made it this past week, but I think next time I will serve it with a side of steamed vegetables)


(Seriously - it is that easy!!)


  1. My family did one like this a lot. We made it less runny and used it on hamburger buns like a sloppy joe or we put it over egg noodles and made like a beef stroganoff. Its a good one....

  2. I would toss dry noodles (or rice) straight in with the beef mix, put a lid on it and let it simmer until the noodles (rice) were cooked.

  3. I am always on the look out for new recipes. thank you!!!
