Hamburger Helper Soup? How odd i thought.Had to use Mixed frozen Veggies in place of Veg-all.GR88888 recipe,thanks for posting.
I really liked this but the rest of the family thought it was OK. I used five cups of beef broth and no water. I didn't have veg-all but had a bag of steamfresh mixed veggies so I made them in the microwave and dumped them in. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. I made grilled cheese sandwiches on the side. This made for a nice quick dinner on a rainy evening.
What a surprise. This was really really good!! I mean REALLY. The kids loved it, the boyfriend loved it.....what more could you ask for?
