Hamburger Helping Mix (In a Jar)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kzim4

Replace those boxes with a homemade version. I have only tried the stroganoff so far, but the kids absolutely loved this (even more than the boxed stuff!).

My guys really liked the chili mac,I made a double batch. They weren't so keen on the stroganoff though. very convenient to have on hand and easy to make. I stored mine in baby food jars already measured and ready to go. thanks for the great idea.
