If you are looking for a healthy and wholesome skillet meal, put the Hamburger Helper back on the shelf and make this yummy dinner instead. I think my husband and kids were pretty glad that I chose to do so haha! I mean, really, who wants a boxed meal anyway? I know that we all use them from time to time but I try to avoid the practice if I can. I’m a home cooking kind of gall 🙂
This skillet meal is really easy to make. I was impressed by the robust flavors! My husband and kids thought it was pretty dang swell, too 🙂
1 lb ground beef
1 lb Jimmy Dean bulk sausage
1 tsp McCormick oregano, dried
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
10 to 12 oz fresh broccoli
1(8-oz) block cream cheese
1/2 c Borden heavy cream
1/2 c Kraft Parmesan cheese, grated
8 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
Morton salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet, brown hamburger, sausage, onion and garlic over a medium heat. Season to taste with oregano, salt and pepper; drain excess fat.
Meanwhile, steam the broccoli until tender yet still a little crisp; season with salt and pepper.
Place cream cheese in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on HIGH for about 45 seconds, until soft; whisk until creamy and smooth. Gradually whisk in the cream until smooth; stir in the Parmesan cheese.
Combine hamburger, broccoli and cream sauce in a large greased casserole dish (2 ½ quart or larger). Taste test and add additional salt and pepper if desired. Top with shredded cheese.
Bake at 350º for about 35-45 minutes, until bubbly around edges.
