  • I've been feeding this to my husband too! I hate the box meals but the husband hates real food so I'll occasionally make him hamburger helper this way and he loves it. - 11/15/07

  • I'm a real man who craves grease, but even I liked it fixed this way. It saves about 40 cal per portion which makes my wife happy. I can have more of it which makes ME happy.
