Hamburger Buddy

Very finely chopping onion, mushrooms and carrots in the food processor is not only fast—it makes the vegetables hard to detect for picky eaters. They also form the base for the sauce of this ground beef skillet supper. Make it a meal: Serve with a green salad.

A huge hit with the whole family, has become a staple

This has become one of my family's go-to meals, a real comfort food-type dish. My husband and two teen boys are big meat eaters so I actually double the amount of ground beef and up the pasta to about 12 ounces for extra heartiness. The only other modification I make is to add to replace the water with more broth and throw in a generous handful of grated sharp cheddar, for a bit of a "cheeseburger mac" twist. Rounded out with a spinach salad, it makes a healthy, hearty meal for hungry guys!

Healthy, fairly quick and easy

Bland

This is pretty flavourless. I added BBQ sauce to mine and my husband added HP sauce and my son added ketchup so we could all get some flavor. Will not be making again.

Add Cheese

This was good but didn't wow me bc it was a little bland. Add some cheese and it becomes awesome.

Healthy, can't taste the veggies

My family loves this

I don't have a food processor so I used my slap chop style chopper on the veggies and it worked great. I used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Much better than Hamburger Helper and way healthier.

healthy, easy, great for the picky toddlers
