    Just a randon question for kicks, mine is the ol' standard Cheeseburger Macaroni but last night I made the Chilli flavour and it's awesome. I added some Frank's Hot Sauce to the ground beef and it turned out sweet! [​IMG]

    Grew up on the stuff, to me it's like Kraft mac n' cheese, two of this planets great quick meals. [​IMG] Well, an honorary nod also goes to popcorn chicken drowned in Frank's Buffalo wing sauce. [​IMG]

    I make my own and it has evolved quite a bit over the years.
    It's damn tasty if I do say so and looking in the mirror I can see how much I enjoy it.

    Start with good meat, a mix of Chuck & Sirloin.
    I use at least 4 different pastas and add a bag of dry onion soup and a good variety of spices.

    Add your favorite cheese.

    I like the Cheeseburger Macaroni one the best. It's been years since I've eaten them.

    I make my own as well. I'm partial to good old basic beef-a-roni...chili mac, if you will. But since I'm not eating beef these days I haven't made it in a long time. Hadn't planned to not eat it this long, but after the cow-forklift thing I found I could do without it. Beef can be replaced by a seriously sharp cheddar and actually be much more appealing to me anyway. Noodles+Ragu/sweat sausage flavor+extra extra sharp cheese > spaghetti with beef. :p

    Lew and Kevin H. You guys know you like hamburger helper. That's why you posted. Sure it's not what the cool kids are eating. It's probably hard to admit how damn good it can be too. [​IMG] Kidding, Kidding.

    My guilty, semi-prepared, junk food pleasures are: Velveeta and Rotel chili and tomatoes while watching football and Top Ramen. I’ve never had Hamburger Helper of any type, so I really can’t comment.

    Beef Stroganoff and the lasagna one. that mac and cheese one.. easy to make without the helper, but I think Stoganoff has a buch of crap that makes it a pain in the ass.

    I usually like the 3 cheese one, but have not had it in a long time. Takes to long to fix. I prefer chicken breast, george forman grill, then cheese on top. 10 minutes, no flavor, eat with with plenty of fluids to get it down. Delicious!

    Hamburger Helper has flavor? [​IMG]

    Haven't made it in years, so I can't recall if I had a fave. I think I still have a few boxes in the pantry (well past the printed expiration, no doubt, but probably still edible). [​IMG]

    I was about to lament the loss of the Cheesy Nacho flavor, but the website (General Mills: Hamburger Helper) still lists it as a current flavor! I have looked at multiple stores in multiple states, and haven't seen this in at least five years. Is it some kind of conspiracy??

    Barring that, I'll pick Stroganoff as my #2.

    "There's no meat in this?"
    "We have meat at home, Clark."

    BOX OF HAMBURGER HELPER = BAG OF PASTA + BAG OF SPICES + 60% UNUSED BOX SPACE

    It "settles during shipping" my ass!
