Home-made Hamburger Helper

My wonderful hubby was wanting to try his hand at making a home-made version of Hamburger Helper one night and ever since it has been a cheap hit without all the preservatives. Simple recipe and budget friendly:

Feeds 4 well
1 to 1.5 pounds lean ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2/3 can milk
1/2 package extra wide egg noodles

Brown ground beef, drain any fat off (with lean beef you can get 2 meals out of 2 pounds due to the no fat content). Pour in soup and rinse out can with the 2/3 can of milk. Boil egg noodles separately and when ready drain and add in. Salt and pepper to taste. Yum

NOTE: best time of year to shop for soups is Sept and Nov when they go on mega sales at all markets for the holidays. I stocked up heavily last Nov at the beginning of the month and still have plenty. I also still have a good bit of the 3 cases of Swanson’s chicken broth that I got super cheap and I use it all the time.
