Does anyone know if the mix for Cheeseburger macaroni hamburger helper is gluten free? I'm having a hard time figuring out which ingredients are in the pasta and which ingredients are in the mix! I'd like to substitute with gluten free noodles and just use the mix. Thanks!

Probably has some flour for thickener.  But the ingredients will say something like - macaroni ( wheat, cuz) then cheese powder , onion, .....

 

what flavor  or do you like?  There  are some gluten-free versions or maybe we could help you make up some mix to use

When I was a kid, my mom didn’t want to pay extra for the cheeseburger hamburger helper.  She just made her own with Kraft max and cheese.  You could just make your own with a gluten-free Mac and cheese.  Not cheap, but would work great.

And if you google, there are some recipes for gluten-free hamburger helper.  and there are gluten-free boxes of it- Walmart has one  you if you can find it (maybe order it online to pick up free at your store?). I have a friend that likes it.

I use Velveta (sp?)  rather than taking a chance on a powdered mix.  Just brown the beef and cook the pasta then add either the velveta that comes in a box or the packets.  I always liked the cheesy to be extra cheesy and using the velveta I can make it as cheesy as I like.

I was going to chime in as a gluten free chef as to some alternatives here of similar options I have done for people EASY ones get a lundberg rice kit of choice, stir in browned ground meat of choice, sausage, or shrimp. I will link these. Other things I grew up in a Mexican family...we did not do hamburger helper but we did often do something called migas, were you dump some crushed up frito or tortilla chips in a frying pan, and cracked a bunch of eggs over them and scrambled it up then topped with shredded cheese and either ate  it as a burrito or with a fork with some salsa over it. I recent redid this with protein no carb tortilla chips and had a nostalgia child hood flash back of how a cheap and easy meal can be so wonderful lol. Anyway have a look as these lundberg kits and imagine them with browned burger, sausage, bacon, or shrimp in them for some easy meal ideas. http://www.lundberg.com/products/entrees-sides/
