Hamburger Helper® Sloppy Joe


.

Hey folks! Hanging in there with this awful heat? It’s a sticky 85+ here in the city and believe me, I’m trying. Which is why today I’m bringing you a no-bake meal. You and I both know, it’s too darn hot for our own self to bake in our kitchen, let alone to try and create a meal or a dessert.


Today, I’m bringing back a classic childhood dinner my mother used to make to celebrate National Hamburger Month with the help of Hamburger Helper®. Does the name ring a bell? Do you get all sorts of memories when you see this little red box with its infamous hand of a logo? Or perhaps by now you have started your own family that you gather around the table and enjoy one of Hamburger Helper’s® delicious varieties. Whether you’ve tried it or not, I’m sure you’ll be left with positive memories.

What’s not to love with this quick and easy dinner?!

It’s been a while for me, but as I made Hamburger Helper® Sloppy Joe, a flood of childhood memories came rushing in. You see, back in the day, my parents owned several businesses which kept them quite busy. After long hours of work, they came home to two very hungry stomachs to feed, my sister and myself. Because they both worked crazy long hours, there were many times dinner was prepared late in the evening. Food prep had to be quick, easy and by golly- delicious! I was (and still am at times) a picky eater however, I never once complained about Hamburger Helper®. It was always a safe bet for my mother to whip this up from box to plate in less than 30 minutes.

So the next time you’re in a race against time for dinner, head over to your local Walmart retailer using this COUPON CODE to purchase a box of Hamburger Helper®. There are plenty of flavors to choose from!

P.S. – Don’t forget to come back later in the week for a new Hamburger Helper® creation as a continuation for National Hamburger Month!
