My Dinner Shortcut: Philly Cheesesteak Sub Recipe Made Easy with Hamburger Helper®

Philly Cheesesteak Grinder Sub Recipe on momspotted

I’m all about dinner shortcuts my kids will love. This Philly Cheesesteak sub is one recipe I will keep using, and Hamburger Helper® brings it all together! It’s been a long time since I’ve purchased Hamburger Helper® and when I recently visited Walmart to pick up a box to make a recipe I was impressed with just how many different varieties they had. I couldn’t resist picking up several boxes!

My pickiest son thinks the Philly Cheesesteak by Hamburger Helper® is best served made just as directed on the back of the box. With five people to feed I wanted to make this a dinner we could eat all together and I didn’t want to run back to the store for another box. I looked at what I had on hand and knew exactly how I was going to make this one box feed all five of us.

First cook your Hamburger Helper® as directed. Just remember you are using 2 pounds of hamburg versus 1 pound. In another pan saute your vegetables in a teaspoon of coconut oil. Keep heat on low and cover, stirring occasionally.

After simmering for 10 minutes do not remove your Hamburger Helper® from heat. Instead remove the lid and combine your vegetables. Let simmer for 5 additional minutes or until the remaining liquids have been cooked up.

Take a long grinder roll and lay several slices of cheddar cheese down. Scoop your Philly Cheesesteak mixture into your bun. If you don’t mind a little miss I actually recommend over filling it a bit.

Talk about your family lining up with their dinner plates, this is the meal to have that happen! It was so good! I almost couldn’t even believe that it was Hamburger Helper®! I have to stock my cabinets to make this a monthly regular meal in our house because the whole family loved it!

Even Mr. Pickypants. He instead just removed the peppers and mushrooms and ate his on a snowflake roll with a slice of cheese. He even went as far as having a second sandwich.
