    Carolyn, use 1/2 c. of the mix per pound. thanks for letting us know that the recipes for use weren't linked to the helper, we've fixed them to show!

    Thank you. Made this last night and the family loved it. Hard to tell the different between the MYO and store brought.

    Just made the potato beef casserole, very tasty, but I did have to make some adjustments. 1 cup of frozen veggies was not nearly enough, maybe if it was peas and carrotts, it would have been, but I used stir fry mix, and they had big chunks of vegetables, so I used 3 cups, six potatoes would have been way too much, I wound up using only 2, and that was more than enough, and it needed 1 and 1/2 cups of water, starting sticking immediately with just the 3/4 cup.

    I noticed the recipe does not add any salt except what is in the bouillon. This is good I think as the regular packaged hamburger helper has way more than a person needs in one meal. Am I right on this?

    I don't have a vacuum freezer bag thing. could I freeze this mix to keep it fresh? Maybe in serving size bags.

    I think all the mix ingredients are shelf-stable. You could probably store it at room temp, fridge, or freezer. (I keep my spice blends at room temp.) I have kept dry ingredients in the freezer; coffee grounds for over a year & cornmeal breading for a few days.(the cornmeal was only in the freezer because it had come into contact with raw fish, & I wanted to use the leftover cornmeal breading in meatballs a few nights later )

    However you store it, check for freshness & clumping before you use it. it should be fine

    So could you store the mix in a mason jar?

    Would the basic mix be like the store bought beef pasta flavor? That's our favorite and would love to make it from scratch.

    I made this mix and tried it with the Chili Mac variation. My family loved it. No vacuum bags here, storing my mix in a mason jar for now. I will probably keep it in the freezer, if the mix lasts long enough. My family is already asking me to add it our rotation. Thanks for sharing!
