“This is so yummy! We've been trying to stay away from the standard box meals so I came up with my own version of a hamburger helper type meal, expcet so much better, not to mention cheaper! We use ground turkey but you're more then welcome to sub for ground beef. It's all in taste. Also the measurments are guest as I usually just eyeball it. I'll also serve with a sprinkle of cayenne. UPDATED!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 12 onion, chopped (optional or you can use onion powder for those that don't like the onion pieces, like DH!)
  • 2 -3 cups cooked egg noodles (or any noodle you prefer)
